New linear trap GOL-NB will be created in Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics in a timeframe of several years. This device will combine physics of two existing linear magnetic configurations, namely gas-dynamic in the central trap and multiple-mirror in attached high-field solenoids. Depending on the magnetic configuration of the adjacent multiple-mirror solenoids, the baseline plasma losses through mirrors will change thus changing the confinement. GOL-NB project is designed as a low-cost supporting experiment that should improve the knowledge base required for the fusion-grade next step GDMT project. The construction schedule actively uses one of the engineering advantages of open systems over toroidal devices; currently GOL-NB operates in the start configuration with the available hardware. In addition to the multiple-mirror configuration that provides a passive method of improving the confinement, a novel active plasma flow control system with a helical mirrors will be studied in BINP in the SMOLA device (see P1.139 and ).
