This work includes the simulations performed in order to design a new neutron detector array NEDA (NEutron Detector Array). NEDA will address the physics of neutron-rich as well as neutron deficient nuclei, mainly in conjunction with gamma-ray detectors arrays like AGATA, EXOGAM2 and PARIS. The geometry of NEDA is being optimized using Geant4 and ROOT analysis codes. Different size of the unitary cells as well as two materials (BC501A and BC537) are considered to study the neutron efficiency and the cross talk between the detectors. Two main geometries have been considered: 1- Flat hexagonal prisms to form a wall or spherical like shapes; 2- Full spherical geometries.
