The ALICE forward muon spectrometer has been designed to measure the complete spectrum of heavy quark vector mesons via their muonic decays in pp, proton–nucleus (pA) and nucleus–nucleus (A–A) collisions. Here we present the main design criteria, an overview of the spectrometer and the status and plans of the project.
