Research and development work at LANL towards a new neutron EDM experiment using the LANL UCN source with a sensitivity goal of several x 10-27 e-cm is currently ongoing. The initial focus of this effort was an upgrade of the UCN source and a demonstration that a sufficient number of UCN can indeed be stored in a nEDM measurement cell and was successfully completed. In this talk, the concept of the experiment and current status of this R&D will be presented.
