The Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) experiment aims at exploring the QCD phase diagram at large baryon densities in the beam energy range from 2 A GeV to 11 (35) A GeV at the SIS100 (SIS300) accelerator of FAIR/GSI. For charged particle identification that is required by many observables that are sensitive to the phase structure like collective flow, phase space population of rare hyperons, fluctuations of conserved quantities, … a high performance Time-of-Flight (TOF) wall with a granularity of about 100.000 channels and a system timing resolution of better than 80 ps is being built. Part of the wall (~ 10.000 channels) will be installed in the forward hemisphere ( 1.0 < eta < 1.5) of the STAR experiment at RHIC/ BNL during the beam energy scan (BES II) campaign planned for 2019/2020. The status and performance of the detector system as well as the physics reach will be discussed.
