P. Adamson, J. J. Evans, P. Guzowski, A. Habig, A. Holin, J. Huang, M. Kordosky, A. E. Kreymer, K. Lang, M. Marshak, R. Mehdiyev, W. H. Miller, D. Naples, R. J. Nichol, R. B. Patterson, A. Sousa, J. Thomas, L. H. Whitehead
The RADAR project proposes to deploy a 6 kton liquid argon TPC at the NOvA Far Detector building in Ash River, Minnesota, and expose it to the NuMI beam during NOvA running. It will significantly add to the physics capabilities of the NOvA program while providing LBNE with an R&D program based on full-scale TPC module assemblies. RADAR offers an excellent opportunity to improve the full Homestake LBNE project in physics reach, timeline, costs, and fostering international partnership. The anticipated duration of the project's construction is 5 years, with running happening between 2018 and 2023.
