We discuss progress being made in the development of an ampere intensity MeV recirculating electron beam system. The system is presently intended for the upgrading of antiproton sources, but is also ideally suited for ion beam cooling in the GeV energy range. We present results of a theoretical study applying intermediate energy electron cooling in to the Fermilab antiproton source, a brief overview of the design of the electron cooler, and discuss progress on the assembly and test of the system.
