Baryonic Matter at Nuclotron (BM@N) is a fixed target experiment at the NICA accelerator complex (JINR) aiming at studies of nuclear matter in relativistic heavy ion collisions. Triple GEM (Gas electron multiplier) detectors have been identified as suitable for the BM@N central tracking system, which is located inside the analyzing magnet. A cathode strip chamber (CSC) is mounted outside the magnet to improve the momentum resolution of the experimental setup. Seven GEM detectors and one CSC are integrated into the BM@N experimental setup and data acquisition system. The structure of the BM@N GEM and CSC detectors and the results of the study of their characteristics are presented. The full configuration of the GEM/CSC tracking system is shortly reviewed.
