The initial geodetic survey for the SPIRAL2 process installation

Abstract : The SPIRAL2 project located at the Grand Accélérateur National d'Ions Lourds (GANIL facility - Caen, France) has been studied since the beginning of 2003, and is now under construction. This project aims at delivering rare (radioactive) isotope beams with intensities not yet available with presently running machines. An important aspect of this project is that it is foreseen to deliver up to five different beams in parallel to the users. This paper is focused mainly on the initial geodetic survey for the SPIRAL2 process installation. The positioning of the process and by extension of the buildings is subject to an important constraint due to the future connection of the radioactive beam line to the existing accelerator (see Fig.3). In order to reach the performances, a geodetic reference network (surface network) linked to the local survey network of the existing accelerator is designed [1]. The surface network will be transferred to the floor of the SPIRAL2 accelerator tunnel (9m under the ground), in order to define the underground reference network for the process setup. Final goal of the initial geodetic survey is to align process components of accelerator according to design within required tolerances.
