The development of a prototype detection unit for measuring fission events in-beam is currently underway. Measurements associated with fission events include fission-fragment mass distributions (FFMD), fission-fragment angular distributions (FFAD), and total kinetic energy distribution (TKE). A systematic study of fission of the Fermium isotopes, 244Fm to 256Fm is being undertaken to investigate the dynamics of fission in this mass region. Novel results from this systematic study are expected for this uncharted set of nucleus, which shows a unique transitional asymmetric to symmetric fission mass distribution.
