  The TDI is a beam intercepting device installed on the two injection lines of the LHC. Its function is to protect the superconducting machine elements during injection in the case of a malfunction of the injection kickers. The TDIS, which will replace the TDI, is foreseen to be installed for high luminosity operation. Due to the higher bunch intensities and smaller beam emittances expected, and following the operational experiences of the TDI, a complete revision of the design of the jaws must be performed, with a main focus on the material selection. Furthermore, the new TDIS will also improve the TDI reliability by means of a robust design of the jaw positioning mechanism, the efficiency of the cooling circuit and by reducing its impedance. A simplified installation procedure and maintenance will also be an important requirement for the new design. This paper introduces the main characteristics of the TDI as LHC injection protection device, showing the needs and requirements for its upgrade. It also discusses the thermo-mechanical simulations that are supporting and guiding the design phase and the material selection, and describes the modifications to be implemented, so far, for this new device.
