  Six interceptive Feschenko-style longitudinal bunch profile monitors have been deployed in the normal conducting part of the SNS linac and HEBT. They have been operational for more than 10 years and although their performance has been satisfactory, reliability and parts obsolescence must be addressed. The upgrade plan focuses in mainly two areas, electronics architecture modernization and improvement of measurement resolution. In the first phase that is presented here the objective is to improve the control and readout electronics taking advantage of more recent technology. This will primarily address the obsolescence issues with older components, the frequent RF power failures, the non-trivial maintenance and troubleshooting and will lead to a simpler and more reliable system. This contribution describes in detail the implemented upgrades and presents the first experimental data.
