Approaching the end of the LHC Run 2 period (2015-2018), the ALICE High Momentum Particle IDentification (HMPID) detector, based on RICH counters, is on hold for operating at the High Luminosity LHC Run 3 period (HL-LHC 20120-2023) when the collider will provide up to 50 kHz of Pb-Pb collision rate at √𝑠𝑁𝑁 = 5.5 TeV.

The upgraded ALICE detector will be able to read out all interactions and it will exploit the full scientific potential of the HL-LHC to study the properties of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), using proton-proton, nucleus-nucleus and proton-nucleus collisions at high energies.

The stable particle identification performance of the HMPID, the proved linearity of the MWPC’s during the high luminosity test runs in ALICE using pp collisions, the still not critical charge dose so far integrated on the CsI photocathodes and the ongoing upgrading activities, enable the use of the detector in the ALICE scientific program defined for the HL-LHC period.

In this paper we present the HMPID status and the activities under way to integrate the detector in the new ALICE computing and trigger environments.
