cSTART (compact Storage ring for Accelerator Research and technology) is a future project at KIT to demonstrate and examine the injection of ultra-short electron bunches and the storage of a laser wakefield accelerated (LWFA) like beam in a very large acceptance compact storage ring (VLA-cSR). Several parameters of the machine and the beam impose some challenges on the beam diagnostics at cSTART. Due to some similarities between the VLA-cSR and the (KArlsruhe Research Accelerator) KARA booster, we also plan to perform some experimental tests in the booster, including measurements of beam position, lifetime, longitudinal profile, and beam losses. In this talk, we would like to briefly report on the plans and preparations for such tests.
