We have analyzed Ω̄+ and Ω- events produced in the inclusive reaction p + Be → Ω + X and have measured some properties of the Ω̄+ and Ω- hyperons via the decay Ω → ΛK → pπK. The measured Ω̄+ + lifetime was τΩ̄ = (0.823±0.038) × 10-10 s (χ2/NDF = 1.52). and the measured decay parameter was αΩ̄ = 0.017 ± 0.077 (χ2/NDF = 1.74). The corresponding values for the Ω- were τΩ = (0.817±0.022) × 10-10 s (χ2/NDF = 1.17) and αΩ = -0.028±0.047 (χ2/NDF = 1.49). In addition, the measurement of the normalized mass difference between the Ω̄+ and Ω- yielded ΔMΩ/MΩ = (1.44±7.98) × 10-5. The measurements were all in good agreement with CPT invariance.
