ABSTRACT: Boron coated straw detectors developed by Proportional Technologies, Inc have proven to perform exceptionally well in many neutron detection applications of interest to DOD. Over the last several years PTI has delivered many systems to government branches BENEFITS: The project will develop a cost effective neutron detector capable of determining both direction and energy content of a neutron source at distance. Although directional neutron detection is recognized as highly beneficial in search scenarios no effectiv
