Several proposed accelerator facilities will be capable of providing intense beams on targets that are in close proximity to superconducting magnets. These magnets will have to operate in high-radiation environments. A proposed solution to the manufacture of radiation tolerant coils is to use a metal-oxide insulated version of the standard CICC, which allows the use of welding to provide structural integrity. A small superferric dipole, similar to one previously constructed with conventional epoxy-potted coils, has been fabricated with metal-oxide CICC. The coils have four turns of 10 mm square conductor having 42 strands of 0.5 mm diameter NbTi wire. The calculated field on the conductor is about 2 T at a current of 10 kA. Test results will be reported and extension to larger devices discussed.
