Kenneth O. Olsen Fermilab Meeting Nov. 4, 2014
“The SPAFOA provides a network for its members with business interests on US Government funded accelerator R&D and siting of large accelerator projects” Tech Transfer: Enhance US industry’s communications with DOE, labs, and universities to incorporate industry in RD&D as a early partner. Enhance US industrial capability in accelerator technology Fair Procurement Policies: Promoting Government procurement policies that provide a leveled the playing field for US suppliers (US jobs with US dollars) Accelerator Stewardship: Assist DOE Office of Science Accelerator Stewardship Program activities by providing input on R&D needs and applications. Attend workshops and participate in reports as appropriate. Congressional Liaison: Communicate issues that foster the growth of industrial capability and jobs with the Congress
Chartered in 2005 as a 501 (c) 6 not for profit DC corporation titled the “Linear Collider Forum of the Americas” (LCFOA) In response to the changes in the ILC program, reorganized in 2008 to the Superconducting Particle Accelerator Forum of the Americas (SPAFOA) Renamed in 2012 to the Superconducting Particle Accelerator Forum of America to reflect 100% US industry membership Current membership totals 23 ~75% small high tech businesses in 14 States Advocate for the US “Industrialization” in advanced accelerator programs
“Low” Energy (Commercial Customers) Evolutionary market 10% annual growth >10,000 in 1992; >30,000 now >6,000 in medical applications Multiple suppliers for major market segments “High” Energy (Government Customers) Each facility different design Gov’t, university and industry users SC technology showing dominance No near term significant commercial market A few companies are in both facets
Cross Section of hi-tech accelerator industry Accelerator components and systems Superconducting and high performance magnets Power electronics and instrumentation Materials science Precision manufacturing Civil engineering and construction management R&D lab and project management 23 members, 17 small businesses
