  Fermilab is actively designing its next generation of proton accelerators (presently titled PIU - Proton Intensity Upgrade) to produce 2.4 MW of 120 GeV beam to the Long Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF), and deliver Megawatt scale beams to a suite of other particle physics experiments researching neutrinos, muons, dark matter, and other particle physics phenomena. These new accelerators will employ state-of-the-art superconducting RF, and rings that will accumulate, compress, and possibly accelerate beam to experiments with a rapid cycling synchrotron. The new accelerators at Fermilab will build off the under construction PIP-II Project - a unique CW superconducting H Linac. The approach will utilize much of the the existing accelerator complex (Recycler, Delivery Ring, and Main Injector) at higher intensity, and retire the original linac and Booster synchrotron. The PIU will use the major next experiments now under construction (LBNF and Mu2e). Novel beam formatting and delivery techniques may be developed for the next round of experiments. Additionally, R&D presently underway in beam dynamics, RF, and targetry may contribute to the capability of new accelerator facilities.
