ACORN recognizes that the unique expertise required to design and develop a modern accelerator control system may come from a number of valued sources. Industry experts, the Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS) user community, vendors, universities and other national and international laboratories have been identified as potential partners.
Initiatives for collaboration are driven by the nature of the project, forward-thinking leaders and the understanding that a diverse team of collaborators will ultimately contribute to the overall success of the project.
Human factors partnership with Idaho National Laboratory
Idaho National Laboratory has human factors expertise they are lending to the ACORN project as we pursue a control system that better suits the humans using it.
