The tracking detectors proposed for future linear collider experiments (ILC and CLIC) are based either on silicon layers or time-projection detector technology. Both tracking systems are designed to be an integral part of a particle flow algorithm approach to excellent jet energy measurement, but also to yield superb individual charged particle momentum resolution for reconstruction of the mass of the Higgs and other objects. Extensive R&D has been carried out for both types of tracking detectors resulting in detailed designs for this component of the ILC and CLIC detector concepts and the construction and testing of a range of prototypes. The status of this development work and the results of tracking performance studies will be presented.
