Preparations to upgrade the single EEX beamline at the Argonne Wakefield Accelerator (AWA) facility to a double EEX beamline are underway. The single EEX beamline recently demonstrated exchange-based longitudinal bunch shaping (LBS) which has numerous applications including high-energy physics linear colliders, x-ray FELs, and intense radiation sources. The exchange-based method can generate arbitrary LBS in the ideal case but has limitations in the real case. The double EEX beamline was proposed as a means to overcome the limitations of single EEX due to transverse jitter and large horizontal emittance. In this paper, we present the current status of beamline design and installation and simulation results for the planned experiments: collinear wakefield acceleration with tailored beams and tunable bunch compression without the double-horn feature.
