9 Hall A collaboration meeting, June 23-24, 2005, 9 Operated by the Southeastern Universities Research Association for the U.S. Department Of Energy Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility 12 GeV Upgrade Spectrometer Mini-Review (January 4-5) At this time, the option that has the best combination of figure of merit and the least risk that covers most of the physics appears to be the HMS+SHMS configuration NSAC charge on Implementation of 2002 LRP Highest priority to 12 GeV Upgrade House and Senate markups (to 408 and 420 M$) make disaster scenarios highly unlikely DOE Science Review (April 6-8) Science was deemed outstanding Major discovery potential in Hybrid Meson Search and Parity Violation Dry run for Lehman Review Went very well Lehman Review (July 12-14) If successful, CD-1 by late September (no PED funds in FY06)

10 Hall A collaboration meeting, June 23-24, 2005, 10 Operated by the Southeastern Universities Research Association for the U.S. Department Of Energy Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility Preliminary Conclusions from Roy Holt The MAD is a bold new advance in spectrometer design that is very promising as a way to reduce the required beam time by at least a factor of two compared to the other configurations for most experiments. Nevertheless, it appears that there is a risk at this time in pursuing this option. Specific concerns which should be addressed before this option is pursued are: Reliability of and effort involved in detector movement and re- calibration after movement, especially in combination with a septum. Effects of relatively large background rates on the performance. At this time, the option that has the best combination of figure of merit and the least risk that covers most of the physics appears to be the HMS+SHMS configuration. If time permits, we advise that the feasibility of the MAD option should be studied thoroughly. In a further evaluation of the spectrometer configurations, a difficult single arm experiment such as x>1 should be included.
