  We will report on the status of the antiproton production target for the FAIR facility. A Ni target will be bombarded by a pulsed beam of 29 GeV protons with an intensity of 2.5·1013 ppp and a repetition rate of 0.2 Hz. Directly after the target the antiprotons will be focussed by a magnetic horn. In the proceeding magnetic separator antiprotons with an energy of 3 GeV (± 3%) will be selected and transported to the antiproton collector ring. The planned setup of the target area, including radiation protection issues, will be presented,
