A new general purpose fixed target experiment is proposed at the CERN SPS accelerator which is aimed to search for hidden particles beyond the Standard Model and make measurements with tau neutrinos. The experiment will use decays of charm and beauty mesons to search for Heavy Neutral Leptons (HNLs), also known as “sterile neutrinos”, which are sub-electroweak region particles introduced by the neutrino minimal Standard Model (νMSM). The existence of these particles would allow to explain neutrino masses, dark matter (with keV scale sterile neutrino forming dark matter) and the baryon asymmetry of the universe. We report results of the test exposure conducted at CERN and present the SHiP sensitivity to new physics beyond the Standard Model .
