    DAEDALUS, the Decay At-rest Experiment for DCP at a
    Laboratory for Underground Science will look for evidence
    of CP-violation in the neutrino sector, an ingredient in theories
    that seek to explain the matter/antimatter asymmetry
    in our universe. It will make a precision measurement of
    the oscillations of muon antineutrinos to electron antineutrinos
    using multiple neutrino sources created by low-cost
    compact cyclotrons. The experiment utilizes decay-at-rest
    neutrino beams produced by 800 MeV protons impinging
    a beam target of graphite and copper. Two well established
    Monte Carlo codes, MARS and GEANT4, have been used
    to optimise the design and the performance of the target. A
    study of the results obtained with these two codes is presented
    in this paper.
