Wireless sensor networks for environmental studies are the new frontier, extending monitoring capability in a cost effective and sustainable way, opening up possibilities of verifying and applying models and possibly leading to more reliable forecast, risk mitigation and action plans. The measurement of radon concentration can also benefit from this concept, both for a large area network for outdoor and indoor measurements and for setting up local clusters of instruments for correlated monitoring in buildings with complex architecture, typically with public access (e.g. schools, hospitals, bank agencies). In the latter case, simultaneous hourly measurements in different rooms can help to spot and optimize remediation actions, often proceeding through an optimal tuning of the ventilation systems. This thesis reports the architecture of a wireless module dedicated to the RADIM5b instrument, a low cost, high sensitivity instrument developed by JP-SMM, a Prague-based company
