The characteristics of ten high-intensity modelling neutron fields in research nuclear reactors with various ratios of the contributions of thermal and epithermal neutrons have been measured in order to be used for calibrating the internal detectors of the standard control system of high-power nuclear reactors. The neutron fields in the F-1, Gidra, and KVANT reactors are certified as working standards of the first and second kind.
