The proton ion beam is produced using a duoplasmatron source and the negative hydrogen ion beam is formed with a cesiated, multi-cusp-field, surface converter ion source. Both beams are accelerated with two 750 keV Cockcroft-Walton columns for simultaneous injection of H+ and H- ion beams into a 800 MeV linear accelerator at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center. An overview of ion injector statuses, recent low energy beam transport line optimizations, and ion source performance studies will be presented.

To reduce long term operational risks of injectors and to improve existing LANSCE beam production for all facility users, new ion beam injector upgrade projects will be described and discussed.
