Alternative techniques to neutron detection by $$^{3}$$He for nuclear security and safeguards systems are necessary to be developed since $$^{3}$$He shortage is serious. With support of Japanese government (MEXT), we have started an development project of ZnS ceramic scintillation neutron detectors for non-destructive assay of Pu in Fresh MOX fuel and other types of nuclear material for a use of safeguards verification. Here we present master plan of the project and feasibility study on neutron absorption probability between neutron and Lithium/Boron in our scintillator by using Monte Carlo code, MVP.
