The Brookhaven muon g-2 experimental result—now more than 3 standard deviations greater than the Standard Model prediction—continues to generate significant theoretical interest. It represents one of the strongest hints of new physics. What could this be, and perhaps more importantly, is it real? To answer this, an even more precise experiment is being designed at Fermilab using their unique complex of accelerators in the so-called Intensity Frontier campaign. The E989 approved experiment will re-employ the original BNL storage ring, but otherwise much of the measurement equipment, beam delivery, and key elements related to muon storage, will be new. I will describe this exciting effort, including the latest thinking on how to move the very large superconducting coils across the country. In collaboration with INFN / Frascati, my group is developing one of the main detector systems, the EM calorimeter. An update on that technical effort will be included in the presentation.
