In January 2011 MoEDAL physicists deployed an array of 130 stacks of Nuclear Track Detectors (NTD), where each stack consists of 10 sheets of plastic NTD of area 25cm x 25cm. This deployment corresponds to roughly one third of the full deployment that is slated for the long shutdown of the LHC. This test stack will be removed and sent for analysis when the full MoEDAL detector (or a new test stack) is deployed.
