The future of accelerator-based high energy physics at Fermilab relies on the construction of a high intensity proton source. Most proton sources consist of a linac feeding a rapid cycling synchrotron. The performance of these sources is a compromise between the space-charge tune shift limitations at injection into the synchrotron and the high cost of RF power in the linac. The advent of superconducting RF holds the promise of making a high power linac more affordable. By blending the performance of a superconducting linac with the energy range of a synchrotron, a very flexible and cost-effective proton source could be realized. This proton source could be built in stages. The construction of a project in well defined stages in which at the end of every stage a substantial increase in performance is obtained is very attractive in these times of tight budgets. This talk will examine the parameters and staging of such a source.
