  The NuMI beam at Fermilab produces a high-intensity neutrino beam for neutrino oscillation experiments. Since the start of 2005, NuMI has been delivering beam to the MINOS experiment. Greater than 2x10[20] 120 GeV protons have been delivered to the neutrino production target, with a peak power of 320 kW being achieved. This note reports on the status and operation of the beam and its technical components, including the target, horns, and instrumentation.

High intensity operation of the Fermilab Main Injector has resulted in increased activation of machine components. Efforts to permit operation at high power include creation of collimation systems to localize losses away from locations which require maintenance. As a first step, a collimation system to remove halo from the incoming beam was installed in the Spring 2006 Facility Shutdown*. We report on commissioning studies and operational experience including observations of Booster beam properties, effects on Main Injector loss and activation, and operational results.
