The only HEP laboratory left in the US is Femilab and the operation of the Tevatron will cease soon after the LHC at CERN starts accumulating data, either in 2010 or 2011. In order for a presence in HEP to be retained in the US, Fermilab is exploring a number of options, centered around what is called Project X. Several scenarios are being considered but will likely include a ~2GeV proton accelerator. One of the configurations includes the simultaneous delivery of such a beam to several beam lines in order to enhance the physics program. The purpose of this proposed research is to develop an rf deflector that would be capable of delivering a 2 GeV proton beam to three beam lines with the bunch structure suitable for Fermilab
