Yes - the HP ACU (array configuration utility) and hpacucli support doing this. It is called Online RAID Level Migration, and it is referred to in the ACU user guide:

You should be sure to have a backup first, and it is strongly recommended to have the BBU/FBWC upgrade - some of the Smart Array controllers simply won't do ORLM if this isn't present.
