The ancillary detector system proposed for the K600 Magnetic Spectrometer will consists of dedicated segmented double sided Si detectors (including signal amplification and digitization electronics) placed in an scattering chamber that is designed to mimimize multiple scattering prior to detection. This will enable coincident measurements of particle-decay during high energyresolution studies at very small scattering angles, including 0 degrees. In addition an upgraded suite of scintillator detectors in the K600 focal plane will enable the clean detection of low energy scattered particles in the magnetic spectrometer.
