HELIX (High Energy Light Isotope eXperiment) is a balloon-borne experiment designed to measure the chemical and isotopic abundances of light cosmic-ray nuclei. Detailed measurements by HELIX, especially of $^{10}$Be from $\sim$0.2 GeV/n to beyond $\sim$3 GeV/n, will provide an essential set of data for the study of propagation processes of the cosmic rays. HELIX consists of a 1 Tesla superconducting magnet with a high-resolution gas tracking system, time-of-flight detector, and a ring-imaging Cherenkov detector. The instrument's first long-duration balloon flight is anticipated to occur in 2024. In this paper, we will briefly discuss the scientific goals of the instrument and report on its design and current status.
