The gamma-ray lines from the decay of 44Ti have been observed by space-based gamma-ray telescopes from two supernova remnants. It is believed that the 44Ti(α, p)47V reaction dominates the destruction of 44Ti. This work presents a possible technique to determine its reaction rate in forward kinematics at astrophysically relevant energies. Several online and offline measurements in parallel with Monte Carlo simulations were performed to illustrate the feasibility of performing this reaction. The results will be discussed.
