Abstract : This report represents the final documentation for the ONR FY12 Young Investigator Program (YIP) award, N00014-13-1-0402, titled Prompt Neutron Spectrometry for Identification of SNM in Unknown Shielding Configurations. The technical portion of this report is not comprehensive, although the executive summary makes a high level attempt. The YIP effort reported here complements work completed under the mainline ONR Maritime Weapons of Mass Destruction Detection (MWMDD) program (FY09-FY14). A comprehensive technical understanding of all the related and prior work for this effort may be found from the Defense Technical Information Center report Solid State Neutron Spectrometer: FY14 ONR-MWMDD Final Report and references therein.
