The results of a proton-induced gamma-ray emission experiment are presented. Such data can be used to simulate the effects of a neutral particle beam within the context of proposed midcourse-phase target discrimination schemes. A summary of the calculations is presented in order to support the general conclusion that the physical limitations on such a system are prohibitive.
