Abstract : The patent describes a selective neutron sensor apparatus for selectively detecting a burst of neutrons in a space ionizing radiation environment. It uses two substantially similar detectors. One of the detectors is sensitive to both charged particles and neutrons while the other is sensitive to charged particles only. A differencing circuit receiving the outputs from the two detectors provides an output which represents the true neutron count.
