Report from MICE project teams Proposed MICE organogram: revised Revised request for resources for financial year 2003/04 Review of iMICE schedules – status report Funding profile for MICE programme – status report Issues raised
Proposed MICE organogram: revised Joint PPARC/CLRC MICE Project Board RAL Project Board MICE-UK Projects and Groups Beam Line MICE Institutes Collaboration Board Steering Committee Responsible for Technical Specification & Delivery Responsible for Policy, Monitoring & Specification Focus Coils Cryogenics & Hydrogen Infrastructure RF ….DetectorTarget … Project Oversight Board
MICE-UK request for resources Assumptions: Require to meet iMICE schedule as defined in proposal Implications: Beam and infrastructure: Make maximum use of long shutdown in 2003/04 Target upgrade: Design, test and commission for installation in shutdown early 2005 Focus pair: Meet design/specification schedule defined in proposal Tracker: Prepare for tracker decision point and lay foundations to meet iMICE schedule
MICE-UK request for resources Discussions since last JMPB to address resource limitations: Funding: SR funds not available until financial year 2004/05 CCLRC/PPARC funds that it might be possible to allocate to MICE project limited to something in the region of £500k or a little more Manpower: ISIS: beam upgrade project work can not be carried out in addition to work presently scheduled in 2004 shutdown PPD/University: can not recruit fast enough to fill all posts requested in document for full financial year
Revised MICE-UK request for 2003/04 Assumptions: Identify minimum funds required that will: Begin to put in place teams that can build and sustain a programme with a spend of ~£3,000k in 2004/05 Preserve, as far as possible, iMICE milestone 3 (step 4: running with one absorber) Protect positions of leadership in: –Focus pair/absorber integration project –Tracker project Note: both projects have major milestones at the October collaboration meeting –iMICE Focus pair/absorber review (chaired by M. Zisman) –Tracker technology decision point
Revised request 03/04: beam/infrastructure Revised capital/staff request presented by PD at last JMPB:
Revised request 03/04: target upgrade Requisitions: Target mechanism not required as soon as foreseen Specification/purchase of cooling system delayed to 2004/05 Tests under vacuum may be deferred to 2004/05 Staff: Post-doc essential to lead project but cant recruit by start of financial year Mechanical/electronic design/technical effort required to: Agree/specify interfaces with ISIS beampipe and jacking frame Carry out initial design and prototyping Revised request 03/04: focus pair Focus pair/absorber design/specification w/g to report Oct03 increase time allowed for conceptual design: Requisitions: S/w and licenses essential for conceptual design Delay purchase of current-lead components and vacuum eq mnt Staff: Oxford-CM design effort delayed to 2004/05 Recruitment delay in Oxford-PP mechanical engineer
Revised request 03/04: tracker Build, commission and operate single-station prototype in time for tracker decision point – Oct03 Requistions: Commission etc in D0 cosmic-ray test stand (in September) do not require to purchase/commission cryostat in UK Tooling/connectors essential Staff: Design effort from IC/Liverpool rolling grant supported staff Post-doc effort essential require continuation of McKigney post-doc position plus 0.5 post-doc FTE Consequence of tracker technology choice: Clear priority to establish scientific, technical and financial case for sci.fi, option Should TPG prove to be preferred, MICE-UK would seek to contribute to TPG/associated instrumentation at the same level as current bid for UK element of sci.fi. construction, commissioning etc.
Revised MICE-UK request for 2003/04 Totals, including travel request that is unchanged w.r.t. original request: Note: figures above for comparison to original request
Review of iMICE schedules – status report 1 st iteration with Beam and infrastructure Target upgrade Focus pair and absorber integration Scintillating fibre tracker included. Other items included as in iMICE proposal Contacts with iMICE groups providing pieces of the iMICE apparatus have been/are being established. Seek to take detailed discussions forward next week at iMICE collaboration meeting Still many open questions – work in progress
Review of iMICE schedules – status report Conclusions: Evaluated milestones indicate present schedule for provision of beam/infrastructure is a reasonable match to delivery of iMICE components More work required to further refine iMICE schedule and to adjust it to make optimum use of the muon beam from 2006 onwards
Funding profile for MICE programme – status report Use schedule for UK MICE deliverables to obtain indicative funding profile under the following assumptions: Staff costed at £80k/year Stretched profile goes beyond 2007/08: analysis may go on into 2009 Differences from last time and proposal … Paul can we discuss?
Issues raised: Staff and requisitions costs for installation and decommissioning Review resource implications Requires clear specification of iMICE/UK MICE responsibilities in MoUs Common fund Discussion starting in iMICE as to possible common fund items Need to understand from UK perspective what are desirable common fund items
