The recent results from Super-K clearly indicate the existence of
neutrino oscillations and, therefore, motivate the building of a muon
storage ring (20-50 GeV) that can produce a directed beam of intense
neutrinos (10^20 -10^21 per year) for both domestic and
intercontinental experiments (base line of as much as 5,000 km). Such
a device requires a powerful proton source (1-4 MW), muon capture,
manipulation, cooling, acceleration, and storage. The physics of the
neutrino sector is discussed in Muon Collider Note 154; here we describe
the factory itself.
