We describe an experiment designed as a proof-of-principle test for a target system capable of converting a 4-MW proton beam into a high-intensity muon beam suitable for incorporation into either a neutrino factory complex or a muon collider. The target system is based on exposing a free mercury jet to an intense proton beam in the presence of a high-strength solenoidal magnetic field.
