The internal tracking system of the NICA/MPD detector is aimed at efficiently detecting the short-lived products of nucleus–nucleus collisions. We consider various geometries of the internal tracking system based on microstrip silicon sensors and simulate its identification power in reconstructing the Λ0 hyperons formed in central Au + Au collisions at \(\sqrt {{S_{NN}}} \; = 9\;GeV\).
