Abstract

The Cosmic Ray Energetics And Mass (CREAM) instrument is configured with a suite of particle detectors to measure TeV cosmic ray elemental spectra from protons to iron nuclei over a wide energy range. The goal is to extend direct measurements of cosmic ray composition to the highest energies practical, and thereby have enough overlap with the ground-based indirect measurements to answer questions on cosmic ray origin, acceleration and propagation. The balloon-borne CREAM was flown successfully six times over Antarctica to accumulate a duration of about 161 days. The elemental spectra for Z = 1–26 nuclei have been measured over the energy range 1010 to > 1014 eV. Transforming the balloon instrument into ISS-CREAM involves identification and replacement of components that would be at risk in the International Space Station (ISS) environment, in addition to assessing safety and mission assurance concerns. The transformation process includes rigorous testing of components to reduce risks and increase survivability on the launch vehicle and operations on the ISS without negatively impacting the heritage of the successful CREAM design. The project status, including results from the ongoing analysis of existing data, and particularly plans to increase the exposure factor by another order of magnitude utilizing the International Space Station are presented.
