During the 2004/2005 Antarctic campaign, CREAM (Cosmic Ray Energetics And Mass) had a record-breaking flight of about 42 days and of three circumnavigations around the continent. The CREAM data acquisition software system (CDAQ) has provided excellent stability and robustness. The design and overall flight performance of CDAQ is presented. During the flight, CDAQ collected physics, calibration, pedestal, and housekeeping events and sent them to University of Maryland via NASA's Command Data Modules (CDMs), satellites, and support centers. The interfaces, not only to the instrument but also to the telemetry support infrastructures, are described in some details.
