To increase the average current for isotope production by factor of two, we have undertaken several upgrades for our 50-year-old 200 MeV H linac. Average current will be double by increasing the beam pulse length. We are testing the DTL tanks reliability by increasing RF pulse length and replacing weak RF joints. We are in the process of replace 50-year old ion pumps and a new PLC based vacuum I&C system for the DTL tanks. We are also upgrading/replacing/adding LLRF, diagnostics, machine protection system, and quadrupole power supply. Paper will present status of these activity and future plan.
