REMUS (Radiation and Environment Monitoring Unified Supervision) is the software in charge of providing Supervision, Control and Data Acquisition for the entire suite of monitoring stations of HSE.

These monitoring stations cover all radiological and environmental parameters that can potentially be affected by the operation of the facilities of the Organization.

REMUS is an innovative system, allowing run-time installation of equipment, run-time edition of synoptic and heterogeneous equipment interfacing.

REMUS provides synoptic views, real time and archived measurements and events to:

  • HSE Radiation Protection Experts
  • HSE Environmental Specialists
  • CERN Control Centre (CCC), Experiment Control Rooms, Safety Control Rooms
  • CERN Fire Brigade

 

REMUS strengths:

  • Reliability: Availability of Servers above 99.99% since production launch (2013-2018)
  • Scalability: Number of archived records tripled between 2013 (15 Bn/year) and 2019 (45 Bn/year)
  • Performance: Client start up in less than 10sec
  • Adaptability: Applications and Synoptic can be created and deployed in run-time
