The CLEO detector is undergoing major improvements in conjunction with a high luminosity upgrade of the CESR e+e- collider. A novel element is a state of the art particle identification system, based on a proximity focused Ring Imaging Cherenkov detector. This detector will provide an excellent hadron identification at all the momenta relevant to the study of the decays of B mesons produced at the Υ(4S) resonance. Some features unique to our design will be discussed together with some results achieved on individual components.
