The main idea of the HypHI project is to perform precise hypernuclear spectroscopy with stable and unstable heavy ion beam at GSI and FAIR. The HypHI collaboration plans the first experiment Phase 0 in 2009 to investigate the feasibility of hypernuclear spectroscopy with heavy ion beams. In the Phase 0 experiment, three sets of Scintillating Fiber (SciFi) detectors (TR0, TR1 and TR2) will be mounted in front of the ALADiN magnet to track charged particles and to produce a trigger signal for the data acquisition system by selecting events with decay vertices outside the target, which are induced by decay of hypernuclei and hyperons. Energy deposit of charged particles will also be measured by TR0 to separate particles with Z=1 and 2 from the target in order to reduce the background
