This document is a Technical Design Report (TDR) which presents the status of the PANDA Forward Time-of-Flight (FToF) wall design. The FToF wall is a system of large scintillation counters which intends for
detection on event basis of the timestamps particles emitted within acceptance of the PANDA Forward spectrometer. The overall
timing resolution of the system is better than 100 ps. The FToF wall is assumed to be used in PID of forward going hadrons with momenta below 4 GeV by time-of-flight criterion. The Dipole ToF implied to be placed inside the dipole magnet is an extension of the FToF wall requiring more R&D. It will be covered in an addendum to this document.

This document describes the technical layout and the expected performance of the Barrel Time-of-Flight detector (Barrel TOF) for the P̅ANDA target spectrometer. The Barrel TOF detector has been designed to precisely measure the time at which a charged particle transits the detector with a resolution superior to the other sub-detectors. It will signal the topology of physics events in statu nascendi, hence setting cornerstones for event classification. The implementation of the Barrel TOF is based on very fast organic scintillator tiles coupled to Silicon Photomultipliers. Therefore the name scintilla- tor tile hodoscope (SciTil). The document also shows the readiness of SciTil for construction and its integration into the P̅ANDA Target Spectrometer

This document illustrates the technical layout and the expected performance of the Micro Vertex Detector (MVD) of the PANDA experiment. The MVD will detect charged particles as close as possible to the interaction zone. Design criteria and the optimisation process as well as the technical solutions chosen are discussed and the results of this process are subjected to extensive Monte-Carlo physics studies. The route towards realisation of the detector is outlined.

This document is the Technical Design Report covering the two large spectrometer magnets of the PANDA detector set-up. It shows the conceptual design of the magnets and their anticipated performance. It precedes the tender and procurement of the magnets and, hence, is subject to possible modifications arising during this process.

This document describes the technical layout and the expected performance of the Straw Tube Tracker (STT), the main tracking detector of the PANDA target spectrometer. The STT encloses a Micro-Vertex-Detector (MVD) for the inner tracking and is followed in beam direction by a set of GEM-stations.
The tasks of the STT are the measurement of the particle momentum from the reconstructed trajectory and the measurement of the specific energy-loss for a particle identification. Dedicated simulations with full analysis studies of certain proton-antiproton reactions, identified as being benchmark tests for the whole PANDA scientific program, have been performed to test the STT layout and performance. The results are presented, and the time lines to construct the STT are described.
