- Given the time scale of LHC IR upgrade, the HTS option should also be examined.
- A conceptual direction of the program is outlined here that can be carried out with modest resources.
- This allows minimum development of HTS technology and evaluates its viability in time for making a technology choice for next generation IRís.
- We ought to do more than turning Nb3Sn R&D magnets to machine magnets in next 10 years. If such R&D can not be justified in such situation, then when can it be?
