  The Nuclotron-based Ion Collider fAcility (NICA) is a new accelerator complex being constructed at JINR aimed to provide the collider experiments with ion-ion (Au79+) and ion-proton collisions at the energy range of 1-4.5 GeV/n and also the collisions of polarized proton-proton and deuteron-deuteron beams. Progress in the project realization is reported.

  NICA is a new accelerator complex being under design and construction at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna. Full-size prototype dipole and quadrupole magnets for the booster synchrotron and the NICA collider have been designed, manufactured and tested. The magnets are based on a cold window frame iron yoke and a saddle-shaped superconducting winding made from a hollow NbTi composite superconducting cable cooled with a forced two-phase helium flow at T = 4.5 K. The maximal operating magnetic field in the aperture is 1.8 T. The magnetic field ramp rate of 1.2 T/s should be achievable. The quench history, AC losses as a function of the magnetic field ramp rate and pressure drop in the cooling channels of the magnets at different pulsed operation modes are presented.

  The new accelerator complex Nuclotron-based Ion Collider fAcility (NICA) is assumed to operate using two injectors: the Alvarez-type linac LU-20 as injector for light ions, polarized protons and deuterons and a new linac HILac for heavy ions. The main features of ion sources and both linacs are presented. Upgrade for pre-accelerator of LU-20 is described.
