Abstract
The high time and position resolution grid geometry time-of-flight spectrom eter is described. It is used for particle identification as an element of the NA49 hadron detector system at the CERN-SPS. Performance and operationa l experience in high particle density environment of Ph + Pb collision are discussed. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
