A physical justification of a correlation detector (CORD) system is presented. The results of CORD testing are described and its technical characteristics are presented. The detector comprises a three-layer array of scintillation counters in the form of an elongated parallelepipeds whose cross-sections are matched with the diameter of a multiplier phototube entrance window. The total thickness of three layers is 15 cm, and the time resolution of each layer is 0.2-0.3 ns. By measuring the energy deposited in the scintillators and the flight times of particles emitted from a target, it is possible to identify the particles and determine their energies. Measurements of the time difference between the instants of light arrival to phototubes situated on the scintillator ends allow the entrance coordinates of the particles to be determined with an accuracy of ≈3.0 cm.
