FESAC has a charge to examine new facilities and major upgrades for the next 10 years
  • Prioritization of scientific facilities to ensure optimal benefit from Federal investments
    • By September 30, 2013, formulate a 10-year prioritization of scientific facilities across the Office of Science based on (1) the ability of the facility to contribute to world-leading science, (2) the readiness of the facility for construction, and (3) an estimated construction and operations cost of the facility.
  • The DOE/SC Associate Directors will create a list of proposed new scientific user facilities or major upgrades to existing scientific user facilities that could contribute to world leading science in their respective programs from 2014 to 2024 (the timeframe covered by this goal)
  • The information developed by the DOE/SC Associate Directors will be used by the DOE/SC as the basis for engagement with the DOE/SC Federal Advisory Committees and others to seek advice and input on new or upgraded scientific user facilities necessary to position the DOE/SC at the forefront of scientific discovery.
    • Empanel a subcommittee to review the list of existing and proposed facilities
    • If you wish to add facilities or upgrades, please consider only those that require a minimum investment of $100 million [but Martin has “clarification” that it might go down to ~$30M]
  • DOE/SC Director will prioritize the proposed new facilities and major upgrades across scientific disciplines
  • Deadline for FESAC report: March 22, 2013
    • Subcommittee formed, input will be sought very soon
      • Chair is John Sarff (Wisconsin), Dennis Whyte is a member
some possibilities
Some Possibilities
  • Steady-State PMI tokamak (~Vulcan)
  • Stellarator
    • Revive NCSX
    • New advanced compact stellarator
  • A small group of us has been engaged with a similar group from PPPL to discuss all of the above, along with possible directions for the current facilities (C-Mod and NSTX-U) in the next 5 to 10 years.
  • Major C-Mod upgrade
    • At least 3 possible directions
      • Divertor (beyond the currently planned outer divertor upgrade)
      • Current sustainment (inside launch lower hybrid?)
      • High temperature superconducting coils
    • Other ideas welcome
    • Plan to form small teams to look at options
      • Will need to develop white paper(s) very soon
