  • Organizers to consult with relevant L2s and SEs
  • Present progress towards readout technology recommendation, or decision, or status thereof
  • Present progress towards optical coupling technology decision, or status thereof
  • Present prototype design, and fabrication and testing plan (S4 wafers tested by end of 2020)
  • Summarize/update technical risks, R&D / simulation needs to retire those risks
  • Define interfaces between Detectors, Readout, and Modules. (Who provides non-detector coupling wafers? Who bonds? How are fab resources allocated between squids and detectors? Etc etc)
  • Plan schedule of design reviews for these subsystems needed before CD1


Parallel session 1

  • Progress towards optical coupling technology recommendation or decision
    • Summary of optical assessment and comments (15-min)
    • Discussion of next milestones and steps in process (15-min)
  • Progress on determining detector specifications and flowdown (20-min)
  • Detector fabrication prototype design, fabrication, and testing plans
    • CDFG overview (15-min)
    • Wafer specifications and interfaces (15-min)
    • Update from fabs - SeeQC, ANL (10-min each)
    • Interfaces (10-min)
  • Summarize and discuss; design review schedule, R&D, development goals for August agency review and CD-1 (15-min)

Parallel session 2

  • Progress towards readout technology recommendation or decision (30 or 45-min?)
    • Summary of readout assessment and comments (Amy or Zeesh)
    • Discussion of next milestones and steps in process (Amy or Zeesh)
    • Down-select metrics
  • Systems engineering and interfaces (15 or 20 min?)
  • Progress on determine readout specifications and flowdown (15 or 30-min?)
  • Readout-related detector testing needs (30-min) - (Adam)
    • Module and readout related testing needs for detector testing
    • Discuss overall landscape, and what makes sense given status of readout downselect, and what resources are available
  • Summary and discussion
