  The FRANZ-ARMADILLO is a Mobley type bunch compressor system at the pulsed intense neutron source FRANZ, under construction at Frankfurt University. The FRANZ-ARMADILLO compresses 9μbunches of a 150 mA, 2 MeV proton beam accelerated by a 175 MHz linac into one short pulse of 1 ns pulse length with 250 kHz repetition rate. In the bunch compressor, two homogeneous dipole magnets and two gradient dipole magnets guide theμbunches, separated by a 5 MHz RF-kicker on individual tracks. The flight path length of theμbunches are determined based on the bunch center velocity and the linac frequency for the longitudinal bunch compression. The gradient dipole magnets provide individual magnetic fields and edge focusing forces to everyμbunch. For the center trajectory, the required parameters are a magnetic field density of 509.2 mT, bending angle of 78.27 deg, and bending radius of 404.5 mm. To satisfy all specifications, field clamps, shims, and chamfer cut will be adopted. The result of the gradient dipole magnet design and the expected performance based on beam dynamics studies will be presented.
