Following the Chernobyl disaster in 1986, French authorities decided to equip air quality monitoring networks near nuclear power plants with a reliable and independent radioactive measurement system.

In 2015, the question of replacing the air monitoring beacons arose. The Hauts-de-France Region and the Urban Community of Dunkirk wanted Atmo Hauts-de-France to take on this case. Bertin Instruments was chosen to accompany the association in the implementation of this new equipment.
