The code NEDIS allows the calculation of neutron production rate and continuous energy spectra due to (α,n) reaction on Li, Be, B, C, O, F, Ne, Na Mg, Al, Si, P, S, Cl, Ar, K, and Ca. It accounts for anisotropic angular distribution of neutrons of (α,n) reaction in centre-of- mass system and dimensions of alpha emitting source material particles. Spontaneous fission spectra are calculated with evaluated half-life, spontaneous fission branching, ν- averaged per fission, and Watt spectrum parameters. The results of calculations by NEDIS can be used as input for Monte Carlo simulation for materials that will be used in radiation shielding and for underground neutron experiments
