Development of New LR-x® Technology Helps Firefighters Track Toxic Clouds
April 23, 2018
A Billings company has developed a faster way for first responders to track clouds of toxic gases during an incident, and they’re working with city firefighters to test it. Diamond B Technology Solutions, LLC obtained a patent in early March for Local-Rapid Evaluation of Atmospheric Conditions, or L-REAC, which was invented on the battlefields of Iraq. The company, which renamed the product LR-x®, obtained exclusive rights from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory and had been developing the patent for nearly a year, said Scott Roller, Diamond B’s vice president for technology.
