An update is presented on a conceptual design for a pion production
target station using a rotating cupronickel band and that was originally
proposed for use at a muon collider facility with a 4 MW pulsed
proton beam. After reviewing the salient design features and
motivations for this target, ongoing studies are described
that are attempting to benchmark the thermal stresses and
radiation damage on the target band using data from the
Fermilab antiproton source and other operating targets.
Possible parameter optimizations and alternative technologies for
the rotating band are surveyed, including discussion on the
the various proton beam parameters that might be
encountered for rotating band targets at either muon colliders
or neutrino factories. Finally, an outline is proposed for a
possible R\&D path towards capability for the actual construction
of rotating band pion production targets.
