The report presents the recent results of experiments with deuterium neutral beam injection in the Gas Dynamic Trap (GDT) device. Neutron scintillation detector and single particle proton detector near fast ions mirror point allow to control DD activity in each shot. A system for spatial measurements of fusion protons is prepared. DD reaction yield measurements are needed to compare with the predictions of the theory based on two-body Coulomb collisions.
