Title: Remote monitoring of critical reactor parameters

Abstract

A nuclear reactor instrumentation system monitors a nuclear power system that includes a reactor core within a reactor vessel and one or more sensors for monitoring parameters of the nuclear power system. The nuclear reactor instrumentation system includes a computer having a processor and configured to be powered by a normal power source and a backup power source; a wireless transmitter operable under the control of the processor; and a memory coupled to the processor and containing stored programming instructions. The stored programming instructions are executable by the processor to cause the processor to receive data from the sensors; identify a loss of normal power from the normal power source; and in response to identifying the loss of normal power, cause the wireless transmitter to transmit the received data.
