Stopped antiproton annihilation can initiate an effcient chain of reactions to produce Ξ hyperons in recoil free kinematics, suitable for further investigations of ΞN interactions. Four delayed decays and presence of eight charged particles in the final state provide a clean reaction signature and allow for usage of a non-magnetic detection system. With the low energy phase space cooled antiproton beam from ELENA at the CERN AD or future FLAIR facility the realisation of this experiment would become possible. In this article the foreseen detector setup and the experimental program will be presented.
