The design of a detector for tracking charged particles is presented together with the characterization techniques developed to extract the main design specifications. The goals for the final detector are to achieve real-time imaging performances, a large detection area, and a high spatial resolution, particularly suitable for medical imaging applications. This paper describes the prototype of the tracker plane,which has a 20 × 20 cm2 sensitive area consisting of two crossed ribbons of 500 msquare scintillating fibers. The information about the hit position extracted real-time tracker in an innovative way, using a reduced number of the readout channels to obtain a very large detection area but with moderate costs and complexity.The performances of the tracker have been investigated using sources, cosmic rays, and a 62MeV proton beam.
