Magnet properties and alignment data are used for modeling and tuning Tevatron performance. This data is collected by technicians and physicists using methods convenient for them, but collecting it into a central location is urgently needed.
For accelerator physicists who need to model and understand beam-magnet interactions, we propose to develop the Beams Lattice Alignment Survey Tracker for Modeling Accelerators Numerically (BLASTMAN) database. BLASTMAN will be a database of magnet locations, field strengths, calibrations and other magnet data that facilitate repeatable generation of lattices for modeling purposes. Unlike the current system where data from various sources are laboriously combined and the resulting lattices distributed via ad hoc methods, the BLASTMAN system will have documented input and output procedures with data flowing through a single source, featuring data consistency checks, and an extensible schema which will allow magnet location lattices of different geometries to be more easily and reliably constructed than is now possible.
