The Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) selected InStep Software's eDNA software suite to perform real-time environmental and radiological monitoring of the state's seven nuclear power plants. The selection of InStep Software was accomplished as part of a competitive bid process.
InStep's advanced data management software will be used by IEMA to continually monitor, store and analyze data from Illinois' 11 commercial and three closed nuclear reactors. eDNA integrates with the IEMA's existing monitoring devices and will immediately alert IEMA personnel of abnormal changes in radiation levels.
As part of the $1.4 million contract award with the state agency, InStep will replace the legacy monitoring system with a Microsoft Windows-based solution. The new monitoring system will be easier to support and maintain as well as provide more advanced and flexible visual representation of the collected information to IEMA personnel.
