The muon tracking detector is based on a set of 48 detection modules (size 1 m × 3 m), each built with 100 extruded scintillator strips, so as to provide four X-Y detection planes, two placed above and two below the container to be inspected. Two wavelength shifting (WLS) fibres embedded in each strip convey the emitted photons to Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) which act as photosensors. After a research and development phase, which led to the choice and test of the individual components, the construction of the full size detector has already started. The paper describes the results of the mass characterization of the photosensors and the construction and test measurements of the first detection modules of the Project.||Conference Name:||4th International Conference on Advancements in Nuclear Instrumentation Measurement Methods and their Applications (ANIMMA)||Conference Place:||Lisbon, Portugal||Conference Date:||20-24 April 2015||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12386/23982||URL:||https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/7465287/||ISBN:||978-1-4799-9918-7||DOI:||10.1109/ANIMMA.2015.7465287||Fulltext:||open|
