M. Iori, E. Arslan,H. Denizli,M. Kaya,J. Russ,A. Yilmaz Sapienza'' University of Rome, Italy Carnegie-Mellon University, Pittsburgh USA Abant Izzet Baysal University TK University of Kafkas TK We present results demonstrating the time resolution and muon-electron separation capabilities with a new concept of an EAS detector capable for measurements of cosmic rays arriving with large zenith angles. This kind of detector will be part of a large area (several square kilometer) surface array designed to measure Ultra High Energy (0.01-100 EeV) neutrinos using the Earth-skimming technique. Because of the very good time resolution and adjustable orientation of the detector elements, we can separate upward-moving tracks from downward tracks at any orientation with high efficiency. The particle identification capability is tested by measurements in coincidence with the KASKADE-GRANDE experiment in Karlsruhe, Germany. A method to identify muons and electron-gammas is presented and a validation from KASKADE-GRANDE is shown.
