The new coordinate-tracking unit on drift chambers (CTUDC) is launched in MEPhI. The detector is developed for joint operation with Cherenkov water detector (CWD) NEVOD of 2000 cubic meters and coordinate-tracking detector DECOR. It represents two coordinate planes of 8 large multi-wire drift chambers in each mounted on the opposite sides of CWD. The total area of the detector is about 30 square meters. The aim of the project is to examine the features of joint operation of such type detectors with NEVOD triggering system, accuracy and performance of drift chambers. This information will be used in development of a future large-scale detector TREK consisting of 264 same drift chambers. Results of cross-calibration of the CTUDC and coordinate-tracking detector DECOR, joint registration of high-multiplicity muon bundles with NEVOD-DECOR complex and performance of the new setup are presented.
