Abstract We present a possible scheme for a fast Time-of-Flight detector which could also serve as part of the charged particle tracking system. The detector consists of scintillating fibers read out by newly developed microchannel plate photomultipliers. The performance of the detector in the experimental environment of the {tau}/charm factory was investigated by a detailed Monte Carlo simulation. The time and space resolutions of the detector are expected to be about 92 ps and 140 {mu}m, respectively. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}
