A Threshold Imaging Cherenkov (TIC) detector, in conjunction with a tracking device and a time-of-flight system, has been developed to allow pion, kaon and proton identification in the 3-8 GeV/c range of momenta. The system allows spatial identification of the photons of particles above the Cherenkov threshold and their correlation to a particular track. The TIC detector uses a MWPC detector with a CsI coated photocathode for photon conversion. The results obtained in ultrarelativistic lead-lead collisions at the CERN SPS accelerator are presented.
