The technical implementation of a new remote monitoring system for nuclear power plants is described in this chapter as an example of a modern environmental monitoring and surveillance system. The concept, the architectural design and the user interface of this system had to meet extremely high demands. Fulfilling the imposed requirements, a system solution was developed which is suitable not only for environmental monitoring but also for hazard management and early warning systems. The pilot installation of this system has successfully passed the operational test phase and has been in full operation since August 2001.
