Well in advance of anticipated test beam use, submit to the Program Planning Office a written request with the following information:

  • Physicists and institutions involved in the study, and the name of the spokesperson

  • Description of the detector to be studied and the purpose of the study

  • Physical layout of the detector and associated equipment

  • Beam requirements, including an estimate of the beam time needed

  • Data Acquisition System and other electronics to be used, and computing needs

  • Financial arrangements

  • Hazardous materials involved, if any

  • Length of time the experimental area will be occupied
