The forward tracking system (FTS) is a straw-tube based detector in
the forward-part of the PANDA-detector. It is specializing in reconstruc-
tion of particle trajectories. The FTS consists of six stations. Each station
consists of four doublelayer straw-tubes. The second doublelayer is skewed
5 to the right and the third doublelayer is skewed 5 to the left. The first
and the fourth doublelayer are not skewed. The stations are numbered
with FTS1-FTS6. Between FTS2 and FTS5 is a magnetic field located so
charged particles will be distracted to the left or to the right. If a particle
fly through the FTS there will be FTS-hits at the position of the taken
straw-tubes created. It is necessary to reconstruct the trajectories of the
particles which are crossing the FTS. In this thesis an algorithm has been
developed which gets FTS-hits and creates PndTracks for the trajectory
in the FTS.
