By combining neutron activation analysis with multiple $$gamma$$-ray detection, we have proved better sensitivity and resolution for the trace element analysis than the ordinary single $$gamma$$-ray detection method. We now try to apply the multiple $$gamma$$-ray detection method to the prompt $$gamma$$-ray analysis (PGA). We have established a new cold neutron beam line for PGA in Japan Research Reactor, JRR-3M, at Tokai establishment of Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute(JAERI). It consists of a beam shutter, a beam attenuator, a $$gamma$$-ray detector array, a sample changer, and a beam stopper. We construct a high-efficiency $$gamma$$-ray detector array specially designed for this purpose. Its performance has been evaluated with the Monte Carlo simulation code, GEANT 4.5.0.
