The neutron spectra induced by the flux of primary cosmic radiation, taking into account its absorption in the atmosphere and the generation of neutrons in the energy range 0.05-1 GeV has been estimated. An estimate of the neutron flux with energy above 1 GeV is approximately 0.3 $particle/m^2/s/sr$. An evaluation of the neutron flux has been conducted to realize a ground-based experiment to monitoring the operation of nuclear installations. These calculations will be taken into account to calculate the background events for the ground-based laboratory science run.
