The ATLAS Muon Spectrometer will be heavily modified during the operation shutdown forseen in 2024–2026, for the high-luminosity program of LHC. The trigger and data acquisition system will be completely redesigned, to cope with a level-0 trigger frequency of 1 MHz, and all the readout electronics will be replaced. New generation RPCs and MDTs will be installed in the inner barrel layer, while new TGC triplets will be installed in the transition region (1 < |η| < 1.3). A major upgrade of the power system is also foreseen. This upgrade will complete the spectrometer adjustment to the increasing performances of LHC, started with the New Small Wheel project.
