The Neutrino Factory produces high-energy neutrino beams with a well-defined flavour content and energy spectrum from the decay of intense, high-energy, stored muon beams. The muon storage rings include long straight sections that are directed toward neutrino detectors that are sited several thousand kilometers away. This poster defines the muon-beam requirements and describes the accelerator facility that is required to deliver them. We give a baseline specification for the accelerator facility and describe the accelerator subsystems of which it is comprised. We will briefly present some of the accelerator-physics challenges such a facility presents and alternative designs for some of the subsystems.
