TRD-II status and the CREAM recovery in Antarctica

The seventh flight of the Cosmic Ray Energetics and Mass (CREAM-VII) balloon borne experiment is being prepared. The new Transition Radiation Detector (TRD-II) will be a part of the CREAM instrument for this flight. The detector assembly has been completed. The status of the TRD-II integration and tests will be presented. The CREAM instrument recovery, which was just completed after the sixth flight in Antarctica, will be highlighted.
