Relativistic protons or deuterons hit the thick, lead target. Emitted neutrons were multiplied by fission inside the uranium blanket. The high energy neutron field produced in the setup was measured by the means of threshold reactions in activation foils. The comparison with MCNPX 2.6.C simulations was done.
