The LBNE experiment will employ liquid argon TPCs for the far
detector, representing a major scale-up from the ICARUS and
MicroBooNE designs. This talk will describe the progress and plans for the
development of the TPC itself, the photon detection system,
electronics and the cryogenic systems. Staging plans and strategies for
scaling up the design towards the planned 34 kt fiducial mass (50 kt
total mass) will be presented. Progress on the development of
simulations and reconstruction algorithms will also be presented.
