The study of baryon-baryon interactions as a basic tool for the investigation of the strong interaction can be extended to the hyperon sector, where much less data exist, especially only few data are available on strangeness S = −2 systems. Stopped antiprotons are very efficient for the production of S = −2 systems via double strangeness and charge exchange reactions, which results in the production of anti-K* which will interact with another nucleon to form a Xi baryon. These studies will result in detailed information of S = −2 baryonic and possible di-baryonic states. A possible experimental setup will be discussed as well as the future possibility for a source of intense, low-momentum antiprotons at FAIR.
