The PRISM Task Force continues to study high
intensity and high quality muon beams needed for next
generation lepton flavour violation experiments. In the
PRISM case such beams have been proposed to be
produced by sending a short proton pulse to a pion
production target, capturing pions and performing RF
phase rotation on the resulting muon beam in an FFAG
ring. This paper summarizes the current status of the
PRISM design obtained by the Task Force. In particular
various designs for the PRISM FFAG ring are discussed
and their performance compared to the baseline one, the
injection/extraction systems and matching to the solenoid
channels upstream and downstream of the FFAG ring are
presented. The feasibility of the construction of the
PRISM system is discussed.
