  As part of the accelerator chain for antiproton production of the FAIR facility, a special high-intensity short pulsed 325 MHz proton linac is being developed. The Proton linac is designed to deliver a beam current of 70 mA with an energy of 68 MeV. A 2.45 GHz ECR source designed for the generation of 100 mA beams with an energy of 95 keV is currently being tested at CEA/Saclay. The production of the structure of the IAP ladder RFQ is nearly completed. First parts of the RFQ vacuum chambers have been successfully copperplated at the GSI. Seven Thales Klystrons have been delivered to GSI at the beginning of 2018 and are nearly ready for use. The completion of the setup of the HV modulator is expected end of the year 2018. The state of procurement and development of further accelerator components will be presented.

  The CWCT is a novel instrument adapted to an accurate average current determination of bunched CW beams or macro pulses. By combining a high-droop current transformer with novel electronics for signal analysis, an output signal bandwidth of DC to about 500kHz and a current resolution down to the micro-ampere level are achieved. Beam current fluctuations are followed within microseconds, permitting fast detection of beam loss. These characteristics render the CWCT an ideal instrument for HPPAs, for example ADS linacs, and other proton or ion accelerators. We present the CWCT principle and the CWCT performance achieved in beam experiments at UNILAC, GSI.
