A particle track detector consisting of plastic scintillating fibers and a gatable image intensifier system has been developed and tested with pion, proton and deuteron beams of 1 GeV/c. We have observed clear tracks of beams and scattered particles at a beam rate of up to 105 particles per second. Tracks have been recorded by using a CCD video camera at a trigger rate of around 30 Hz. The energy and spatial resolutions have been investigated.
