Abstract: In this paper we discuss the long-term perspective of the application of numerical modelling to neutron (coincidence or multiplicity) counting. The advantage of this technique for nuclear safeguards is discussed with particular emphasis to the numerical calibration of detectors. As a particular case of numerical modelling, real-time simulation would allow overcoming some problems related to pre-calibration of neutron counters, especially in all those cases when the sample characteristics deviate from the calibration conditions. Nevertheless it requires a significant increase in computing capabilities. The requirements for real-time simulations deriving from inspection needs are discussed and compared to current (and possible future) computing capabilities.
