STT TDR Volume:

The current version of STT TDR is avaliable here panda_tdr_trk.pdf

Joint Central Tracker TDR

The preliminary TDR of both STT and GEM-TPC contains all information prepared for the central tracker decision.


A subversion repository " https://lxfocus14.pv.infn.it/svn/PndTrkTdr " has been created to host the files for the Tracking TDR. The editing rules are similar to the ones for the TPR and the PB. Please have a look to the editing rules of the Physics Book in the Panda PBook Wiki. If you have not been contacted and want to be an author with svn access, please send an e-mail to Gianluigi Boca (Gianluigi.Boca@pv.infn.it).
