A high performance particle identification (PID) system is essential for the successful realization of the broad physics program at the future Super C-τ Factory in Novosibirsk. The main requirements for the PID system are as follows: good π/K-separation in the entire operational momentum range and good μ∕π-separation in the momentum range from 0.3 to 1.2 GeV/c. The RICH detector based on focusing aerogel radiator (FARICH) and position-sensitive photon detector meets all these requirements. The FARICH method is described, and the beam test results are presented. The FARICH system design outline for the Super C-τ Factory project is presented. Most promising photon detector options are considered.
