spafoa evolution
SPAFOA Evolution
  • Chartered in 2005 as a 501 (c) 6 not for profit DC corporation titled the “Linear Collider Forum of the Americas” (LCFOA)
  • 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 26 ~75% small high tech businesses in 13 States
  • Future advocate for the US participation in the ILC?
spafoa mission
SPAFOA Mission

“The SPAFOA provides a formal network for its industry members with common business interests to interact with government funded 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 level 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
board of directors
Board of Directors
  • Ed Bonnema- Meyer Tool, Oak Lawn, IL
  • Tony Favale- Advanced Energy Systems, Medford, NY (Chairman)
  • Tyler Przybylek- URA, Washington, DC
  • Todd Treado- Communications and Power Industries, Beverly, MA
  • John Urbin- Linde BOC Process Plants, Tulsa, OK

BOD meets to set meeting location and schedules, review forum budgets and spending priorities, approve new member applications, & discuss issues impacting industrialization. BOD members are elected

for a three year term.

spafoa meetings briefings 2013
SPAFOA Meetings/Briefings 2013
  • Conduct three member meetings/year at National Labs and universities:
    • MSU FRIB- April
    • Argonne National Lab- June 13 (planned)
    • SLAC and LBL- Sept/Oct
  • Annual Capitol Hill briefing- June/July

Note: All SPAFOA events are open to the public

roles
Roles
  • DOE/SC: Continue to push the technical performance envelope (R&D, new science and user facilities)
  • DOE/Industry: Collaborate to two-way transfer technology and develop cost effective accelerator system configurations
  • Industry: Develop competitive manufacturing processes, financing options, and new market areas
accelerator applications
Accelerator Applications

Momentum is building!

  • Accelerator Stewardship Program held two workshops (Medical and Lasers)
  • IARC construction, Dec 2013 completion
  • Japanese ILC Siting proposal
major issues
Major Issues
  • Potential 5-6% reductions in current budget with sequestration
  • Many existing DOE SC programs planned with budget growth assumptions of 3-4 years ago are not able to maintain schedule
  • Communications with public and Capitol Hill staffers must be enhanced
  • Japanese declaration to host ILC
  • New Energy Department secretary policies?
  • DOE’s pendulum is slowly swinging toward more applied R&D
  • DOE Initiated SC 10 Year Facilities Plan (2014-2024) schedule to be published this fall
recommendations
Recommendations
  • US industry can be a strong partner. R&D collaborations between labs and industry on accelerator technology should be expanded to better prepare US industry to grow over the next decade.
  • Laboratories and universities should develop policies to enhance collaboration and access to government funded R&D facilities
  • DOE should address the Federal Procurement Regulations to support US industry competing for upcoming procurements.
conclusion
Conclusion

“The Nation must continue strong support of superconducting radio frequency (SCRF) particle accelerator R&D to advance scientific discoveries and establish a strong U.S. industrial base to support other governmental and global commercial applications”
