The second stage (NA48/1) was carried out in 2002 and was devoted to high precision study of rare decays of kaons and neutral hyperons. The next stage (NA48/2) was carried out in 2003–2004 and was dedicated to a large programme of studies of properties of charged kaons, including the search of direct CP violation, calculation of rare decays branching ratio and form-factors. A new stage (referred early as NA48/3 and now as NA62, also known as P326) is foreseen in 2007–2010 to study several hot topics of modern kaon physics: search for the very rare decay of the charged kaon into a pion and a pair of neutrinos, precise measurement of Ke2/Kμ2 decays ratio, and a possible a rare decay program. The first data acquisition process of kaon decays started spring 2007 and lasted till the middle of November 2007.
