The baseline for high-energy heavy ion operation in CHARM will be to have 2-3 weeks per operational year for radiation effects users, and during the period in which the CERN accelerators will be in ion physics mode, typically towards the end of November and/or first half of December. However, from a user perspective, breaking down the heavy ion radiation effects runs into two parts of the year would provide more flexibility and shorter average lead times for the beam. Therefore, this deliverable will report on the feasibility and implications of having an ion radiation effects run earlier in the operation year, in parallel to the proton physics operation elsewhere in the complex. Whereas already deemed as technically feasible, there are possible programmatic and resource constraints that will need to be taken into account in the related analysis, and which will be reflected in the report.
