Our main interest in creating a secondary high-quality KL-beam is to investigate hyperon spectroscopy through both formation and production processes. We propose to study two-body reactions induced by the KL-beam on the proton target. The experiment should measure both differential cross sections and self-analyzed polarizations of the produced $\Lambda$-, $\Sigma$-, and $\Xi$-hyperons using the GlueX detector at the Jefferson Lab Hall D. New data will greatly constrain partial-wave analysis and

The measurements will span c.m. $\cos\theta$ from -0.95 to 0.95 in c.m. range above W = 1490MeV and up to 4000 MeV.
