  In preparation of FAIR, several well-established beam instrumentation systems of the GSI heavy-ion synchrotron SIS18 and its connected high-energy beam transfer lines (HEBT) have to be modernized. In this contribution, the data acquisition upgrade of particle detectors such as ion chambers and plastic scintillators is described. This covers the replacement of an outdated custom-built readout- and control hardware by modern FMC (FPGA mezzanine card) based I/O hardware, new multi-channel high voltage power supplies and a new data acquisition system (DAQ) for the VME based scalers. The latter will replace the old Kylix-based ABLASS software by LASSIE (Large Analog Signal and Scaling Information Environment) to fit into the new FAIR control system concept. LASSIE is based on FESA (Front End Software Architecture). FESA was originally developed by CERN and enhanced by GSI-specific modifications. Furthermore, the new particle detector DAQ will be able to take full advantage of the new FAIR timing system which is based on the White Rabbit protocol.

  At FAIR the re-assembly of the well known CRYRING accelerator, formerly hosted by Manne Siegbahn Laboratory (MSL) Stockholm, is currently in progress. This compact low energy heavy ion synchrotron and experimental storage ring will be a testing platform for all control system (CS) concepts decided on for FAIR. The CRYRING CS will be based on the system originally developed by CERN which combines the JAVA based application level LSA (LHC Software Architecture) , the data acquisition level FESA (Front-End Software Architecture) and the White Rabbit based timing system. All parts have been enhanced with GSI specific functionality. In preparation for the commissioning of CRYRING later in 2015 all required beam instrumentation (BI) equipment including the software is now under development. The data acquisition (DAQ) concepts for the various instruments is presented, with emphasis on the seamless integration into the overall CS. For standard BI systems, such as digital imaging, profile and intensity measurement, VME and IndustryPC based DAQ systems are used. For beam position monitoring a new hardware strategy which combines the microTCA and FMC (FPGA mezzanine card) form factors is under evaluation.
