The future Neutron For Science (NFS) facility to be installed at SPIRAL2 (Caen, France) will produce high intensity neutron beams from hundreds of keV up to 40 MeV. Taking advantage of this facility, data of particular interest to the nuclear community, in view of the development of fast reactor technology, will be measured. The development of an experimental setup called FALSTAFF for a full characterization of actinide fission fragments has been undertaken. Fission fragment isotopic yields and associated neutron multiplicities will be measured as a function of the neutron energy. Based on time-of-flight and residual energy technique, the setup will allow for the simultaneous measurement of the velocity and energy of the complementary fragments. The performance of the time-of-flight detectors of FALSTAFF will be presented and expected resolutions for fragment masses and neutron multiplicities, based on realistic simulations, will be shown.
