A network enabled radiation detection system includes a sensor configured for measuring radiation; a microprocessor configured for receiving data from the sensor related to radiation; memory operatively associated with the microprocessor; software code configured for time stamping data related to radiation, and for storing data, subsequent to time stamping, in the memory; and wireless communication equipment configured for transmitting a message with the data related to radiation to another device. A method of monitoring radiation with a network enabled radiation detection system includes measuring radiation with a sensor; receiving data into a microprocessor related to the radiation; time stamping the data related to radiation; storing the data in memory; and transmitting the data to a base station.
