The S-DALINAC is a superconducting recirculating electron accelerator with a final energy of 130 MeV. It operates in cw at 3 GHz. It accelerates beams of either unpolarized or polarized electrons and is used as a source for nuclear- and astrophysical experiments at the university of Darmstadt since 1987. We will report on two future upgrade plans for increasing the operation stability of the accelerator: A high energy scraper system for collimating the beam before it is delivered to the experiments and a rf feedback system to fix the rf phase of the beam leaving the injector linac by measurements on a rf monitor.
