A gantry is required for the PAMELA project using non-scaling Fixed Field Alternating Gradient (NS-FFAG) magnets. The NS-FFAG principle offers the possibility of a gantry much, lighter and cheaper than conventional designs, with the added ability to accept a wide range of fast changing energies. This paper will build on previous work to investigate a design which could be used for the PAMELA project.
