The HERON project is an R&D effort to create a detector suitable for real-time, high rate measurement of neutrinos from both the p-p and [sup 7]Be reactions in the Sun using superfluid helium as the target medium. Progress on studies of particle detection processes in superfluid, on development of sensors, on backgrounds, and on event energy and position measurement which are related to this goal are discussed.
