The paper reviews the latest results of the numerical optimization of the powerful 14 MeV neutron source based on gas dynamic trap (GDT). Further experiments on the existing GDT device in Novosibirsk, which are planned to prove the key physical issues of the plasma confinement in the neutron source, are also discussed in the paper
