A technique for measuring spallation cross sections of interest for cosmic-ray propagation calculations is described. This technique utilizes micro-channel-plate devices for time-of-flight mass identification and a gas-ionization-counter telescope to measure charge. Preliminary results from the 180 MeV/N p + 27A1 reaction are reported.
