IT’S TRACKER TIME

June 30th, 2010

The magnets swap has been completed and integration of the payloads on the Permanent Magnet is progressing regularly. After the installation of the ACC and the Tracker inner core, the integration team is perfectly on time. We are now working at the relocation of the Silicon Tracker planes, to match the Permanent Magnet configuration.

The new Tracker support structures and all the elements needed for this operation are already at CERN. After the fit-check of new Tracker planes, the integration activities will continue as scheduled until the half of July.
