Title: System Construction of the Stilbene Compact Neutron Scatter Camera

This report documents the construction of a stilbene-crystal-based compact neutron scatter camera. This system is essentially identical to the MINER (Mobile Imager of Neutrons for Emergency Responders) system previously built and deployed under DNN R&D funding,1 but with the liquid scintillator in the detection cells replaced by stilbene crystals. The availability of these two systems for side-by-side performance comparisons will enable us to unambiguously identify the performance enhancements provided by the stilbene crystals, which have only recently become commercially available in the large size required (3” diameter, 3” deep).
