The superheavy element program at the velocity filter SHIP at GSI focused during recent years on hot fusion reactions with 248Cm targets. In collisions of 48Ca +248Cm a total of six decay chains was observed which were attributed to the isotopes 292116 and 293116. Further, the reaction 54Cr +248Cm was applied to search for isotopes of the element Z = 120. Besides the experimental program, we plan a mid-term upgrade of SHIP and develop new detection techniques.
