TOF DAQ can handle 500 Hz. Kaons are 0.1 % of particles -----> Kaon rate is 1/2 Hz (@ 1.0 GeV/c).
Run 1 hr. for good Kaon stats, slightly longer at lower beam momenta (10 momentum steps total).
TOF will run independently and unobstructed in AGS test beam for at least two 12 hour shifts.
Results based on test-beam data will be crucial in future design considerations for PHOBOS TOF.
