Since 2013 there has been at least one superconducting undulator (SCU) in operation at the Advanced Photon Source (APS), currently there are two planar SCUs and one helical SCU. The combined operational experience of SCUs at the APS is more than 11 years and counting. Through all these years, APS SCUs operated with the predicted or better than predicted radiation performance and with 99% availability. With this demonstrated reliability and experimentally confirmed spectral performance, the APS upgrade project is planning on leveraging the advantages of SCU technology. The present planar SCUs are comprised of ~1.1-m-long magnets, each operated within a 2-m-long cryostat, while the planar SCUs for the upgrade will have two ~1.8-m-long magnets operating within a 5-m-long cryostat. Progress is also being made in other areas of SCU development with work on an arbitrary polarizing SCU, referred to as SCAPE, and a planar SCU wound with Nb3Sn superconductor. A Nb3Sn SCU is being designed with two 1.3-m-long magnets within a 5-m-long cryostat, and installation is planned for 2021. Also under development are the alignment and magnetic measurement systems for use with the 5-m-long cryostat.
