An intense R&D program has been carried out by the NOE Collaboration during the last years, to develop a massive fine grain scintillating fiber calorimeter, to be used, in combination with an appropriate target, in a Long Base Line experiment at the CERN to Gran Sasso (CNGS) neutrino beam. The performance of a 4 ton NOE calorimeter prototype exposed to a test beam at CERN PS is shown. Results on the linearity, electromagnetic and hadronic energy resolution are reported and compared with the Monte Carlo predictions.
