Fermilab Experiments Remote Operations Center (ROC-W)
Mock up of the XOC from the Wilson hHall Atrium

The Fermilab ROC-W is an operations center, for experiments at the Intensity Frontier, in the atrium of Wilson Hall.

Purpose

The purpose of the XOC is to combine the operations functions of Intensity Frontier experiments into a single, centrally-located and optimized space, potentially for:

  • And any other Intensity Frontier experiment at Fermilab.

Function

The primary function is to provide a single, centrally-managed location that can accommodate the hardware and software needed to operate the experiments. The ROC-W provides a communications focal point for Fermilab operations staff and experimenters. Operators in the Main Control Room (MCR) now have a single location to contact and communicate with the experiments. Experimenters are able to get information on the operational status accelerator components and experiments. The ROC-W also functions as a new education and outreach venue to highlight Fermilab research at the Intensity Frontier.

Design Team

We have set up a Requirements Task Force, working with the Directorate and FESS, to solicit for functional requiremetns for the XOC, consisting of:
