Abstract: Hermetic coverage of LHC detectors will require the use of fast and radiation resistent calorimeters in the very forward direction. The purpose of this R&D proposal is the construction of calorimeter modules prototypes based on the Parallel Plate Chambers PPCs) technique to determine its mechanical feasibility, performance and cost.
