By combining a 2 GeV linac with rapid cycling synchrotron, a 200kW, 8 GeV proton source can enable a 2.1 MW, 120 GeV beam from the Main Injector. This source can be built with standard accelerator technology and little technical risk. This source can then be upgraded in a straight forward manner with more advanced accelerator technology such as an 8 GeV superconducting linac and a super-ferric, medium energy Booster to provide enough beam for 10.4 MW at 120 GeV in the Main Injector. In addition, the upgraded source can provide 1.7 MW at 8 GeV and 4.7 MW at 22 GeV. This staged approach avoids the “all-or-nothing” pitfalls of the current Project X concept.
