Abstract The 200 MeV H⁻ Linac has been operational for the last 45 years providing beam for the physics and isotope programs. Currently we are upgrading the Linac for improved reliability and integrated intensity. Recently we replaced the 7651 tubes with solid-state RF amplifiers. In addition, the low level RF system and Timing system were upgraded and new beam loss monitors were installed that is sensitive at low-energies and to neutrons. We have a plan for future upgrades to the vacuum, Controls, diagnostics and power supply systems. In order to achieve higher average current for the isotope program, it is plan to increase the beam pulse length from 450 us to 900 us. This will require modifications to the RF and all pulse power supply systems.
