The analysis of the different models of a plastic position-sensitive detector construction for muon tomography is discussed. The key feature of the detectors is the ability of, a passive registration of ionizing radiation from the inspected object. The optimal configuration of the detector has been determined, and its main parameters in both modes of operation has been assesed.
