Muon Accelerator Staging Study (MASS)

The Muon Accelerator Staging Study (MASS) working group is being established by the U.S. Muon Accelerator Program (MAP) to provide key program planning inputs during the MAP Feasibility Assessment Phase. The updated MAP plan envisions this feasibility assessment occurring in two parts – Phase I (FPI) covering the period FY13-15 and Phase II (FPII) covering the period FY16-18. During this time, the principal focus of the program is to validate the design concepts and technologies that will enable a project to build a neutrino factory and/or muon collider. The results of these assessments will enable the HEP community to make an informed decision on its path forward.
