The production and properties of K + in nuclear reactions π − + A (A = C, W) at an incident beam momentum of 1.7 GeV/c has been studied with the HADES setup at SIS18/GSI. Phase space distributions of kaons produced off heavy and light nuclei can be studied to extract information about the KN potential. We present the analysis method, normalization procedure and first results on the ratio of inclusive (K + ) cross-sections in π − -induced reactions on W and C targets in comparison to existing
