LBNF Near Site Requirements Review

Kickoff Teleconference

November 2, 2018

In-person Meeting

November 14, 2018


The Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility/Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (LBNF/DUNE), hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermilab, is an international flagship science project to unlock the mysteries of neutrinos. The LBNF project provides the facilities required to operate the DUNE experiment both at the far site (Sanford lab, South Dakota) and the near site (Fermilab). The LBNF far site comprises of the far site conventional facilities, cryostat and cryogenics systems required to house and operate the 4 LArTPC (Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber) far detectors, while the LBNF near site comprises of the Beamline and near site conventional facilities required to operate the near detector.

The LBNF Near Site Facilities, Beamline and Near Site Conventional Facilities (NSCF) sub-projects are advancing their design in preparation for the DOE CD-2 review which will be held in the Fall of 2019. As a part of this activity the design requirements are being revisited and updated. The goal of this review is to verify that the requirements have been adequately defined to enable the DUNE project to achieve its Science goals.

After this review, the Beamline and NSCF requirements will be baselined and any future changes will be managed through the LBNF/DUNE Change Control process.
