Submission of Technical Proposal

15 December 1994

ATLAS submitted the technical proposal of the experiment to the LHC Experiments Committee. Approval to proceed with technical design reports was granted in early 1996, followed by the submission of the first report on 15 December of the same year. A long series of technical design reports have been submitted since then. In July 1997, the Committee approved the construction of the ATLAS detector. Teams all over the world built detector components and worked on final technical developments.
