CUP - close user position

A new irradiation position, CUP (Close User Position) has been constructed, characterized, and put into operation at the ANITA facility for accelerated testing of components and systems for single event effects. The energy-integrated neutron flux above 10 MeV, amounting to more than 107 cm-2 · s-1, is the highest among the facilities with atmospheric-like spectra. Results of beam characterization measurements are reported in the recent publication:
