February 14th 2013 marked the end of the first period of running of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the start of a two-year break from operation (LS1) aimed at consolidating both the accelerator as well as the detectors. By the end of LS1, the LHC is expected to provide collisions at 13 Tev. While, by 2020, the ultimate instantaneous luminosity is expected to be 1034/cm2/s. To prepare for this scenario, the Resistive Plate Chamber system at the CMS experiment is planning several detector maintainance and consolidation interventions. These include High Voltage and Low Voltage system reparations, gas leak identification and reparation, signal channel connectivity and functionality. Commissioning and upgrade plans for the existing CMS RPC system are presented here.
