Navigation and service


The ODL measuring network is operated by the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS).

To be able to operate the measuring systems over the whole area, six so-called measuring stations have been established. Each measuring station is responsible for the measuring systems operating in a specific geographic area.

The locations of the individual measuring stations are in

  • Berlin,
  • Bonn,
  • Freiburg,
  • Oberschleißheim,
  • Rendsburg,
  • Salzgitter.

Altogether about 45 staff of the BfS department of "Radiation Protection and the Environment" are responsible for the operation of the measuring systems. The staff members from various fields with various qualifications take care of the setting up, the maintenance and quality check of the measuring devices and the measured data.
