A gantry is re­quired for the PAMELA pro­ject using non-scal­ing Fixed Field Al­ter­nat­ing Gra­di­ent (NS-FFAG) mag­nets. The NS-FFAG prin­ci­ple of­fers the pos­si­bil­i­ty of a gantry much small­er, lighter and cheap­er than con­ven­tion­al de­signs, with the added abil­i­ty to ac­cept a wide range of fast chang­ing en­er­gies. This paper will build on pre­vi­ous work to in­ves­ti­gate a de­sign which could be used for the PAMELA pro­ject.
