The financial constraints imposed on the LBNE project do not allow
construction of a full near detector complex in the preferred or
any of the other scenarios.
The near detector could be constructed if resources other than the DOE HEP
come into play. In this note, we examine strategies to maintain the initial
scientific performance without a full near detector complex. Although
detailed evaluation must await full simulations, it is our
judgment based on previous experience that the options presented in
this paper will be adequate for the initial
period of LBNE running because of the choice of a liquid argon TPC for the far detector
because of its extremely high performance in particle identification.
Nevertheless, a full near detector complex is highly desirable in the long term,
and is needed to achieve the full scientific agenda of LBNE.
