Sites in France
IRSN, France’s state body for nuclear safety, uses AMI Software developed by Bertin IT, a CNIM Group company, on a daily basis for monitoring purposes. Key data is captured in real time, correlated and interpreted, making it possible to detect trends and risks, and to support the issuing of any nuclear alerts.
Context and challenges
The IRSN - Institut de Radioprotection et de Sûreté Nucléaire – provides research and expertise on the risks related to radioactivity, notably:
- nuclear safety, including the transportation of fissile and radioactive material
- protection of people and the environment from ionizing radiation
- protection of nuclear installations and the transportation of radioactive and fissile material from any malicious acts
With the safety of the wider population at stake, IRSN needs highly detailed knowledge about its sector of activity. This requires a powerful tool to monitor multiple sources of information in real time, and the ability to rapidly select the key elements. Capitalizing on this wealth of information also means being able to exploit the data quickly and easily when needed.
The Group's solutions
Drawing on thousands of sources, the monitoring staff and analysts of the IRSN collect, select and distribute relevant information to support the decision-making process.
