The IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole Station is the
preeminent facility for high energy neutrino multimessenger
astronomy. It was built by the US National Science Foundation (NSF)
and foreign partners and has been in operation for nearly a decade
with an acclaimed, diverse science program that has yielded
multiple scientific breakthroughs. The IceCube Upgrade is an
NSF-supported mid-scale project with significant contributions from
worldwide non-NSF sources. It will extend IceCube with an
additional array of dense optical sensors to measure neutrino
oscillation parameters and to perform a precision characterization
of the ice to boost the performance of the IceCube instrument. The
Upgrade project additionally lays the groundwork necessary to
undertake future larger scale facility enhancements into
IceCube-Gen2 forecasted for the next decade. The Wisconsin IceCube
Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC) manages IceCube operations,
the IceCube Upgrade project, and planning for IceCube-Gen2.
