Fermilab is planning a megawatt-level proton beam facility utilizing niobium superconducting RF (SRF) cavities. Project X at Fermilab will eventually provide high-intensity beams for research into the nature of matter at the "intensity frontier". Research and development in several areas will bring the SRF technology to the level needed for this application. Among developments in SRF being pursued with our national and international collaborators are 162.5 MHz half-wave resonators, 325 MHz single-spoke resonators, and two types of elliptical multi-cell 650 MHz cavities. Performance requirements for these cavities and cryomodules in continuous wave (CW) operation are extremely stringent in order to provide high accelerating gradients with acceptable total cryogenic load and overall accelerator capital and operating costs. This paper presents some highlights of the SRF R&D program and proton linac development work at Fermilab.
