The systematic study of NN spin observables allows the unambiguous determination of the five complex pp and np scattering amplitudes. Recent results from our Saturne II experiment include the determination of the np amplitudes between 0.8 and 1.1 GeV, as well as the measurement of the pp asymmetry and spin correlation A oonn in small energy steps. The latter data are preliminary, but show an intriguing structure. An overview of the future plans concludes this report.
