Diamond B Technology Solutions, LLC (LR-x®) to Present with U.S. Army Research Laboratory at American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting
Billings, MT – January 7, 2019 Diamond B Technology Solutions, LLC in conjunction with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory has been selected to present at the American Meteorological Society (AMS) Annual Meeting to be held January 6-10, 2019. The presentation, to be given by both Gail Vaucher, U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) and Scott Roller, VP of Technology for Diamond B Technology Solutions, LLC (LR-x® Technology) on January 7th, will describe the historical atmospheric research that prompted the initial airborne hazard requirements; as well as, the debut and subsequent improvements made before being transitioned from government to a civilian technology.
The robust, industry changing application grew out of extensive research and development completed by ARL in White Sands, NM. ARL created the L-REAC® (Local-Rapid Evaluation of Atmospheric Conditions) System to improve soldier and civilian situational awareness of environmental airborne hazards during potentially life-threatening events. From a first of its kind diagnostic wind and turbulence proprietary 3-D Wind Field (3DWF) model, coupled with real-time atmospheric measurements and a First Responder-friendly NOAA/EPA plume model ALOHA®, ARL mitigated losses through the increase of timely airborne hazard intelligence.
The Diamond B Technology Solutions, LLC exclusive license rebrand LR-x® is a paradigm shifting technology in chemical spills, CBRN treat, airborne hazard events, and wildfire safety. By producing a hazard visualization in near-real time, first response decisions can be made using 3DWF and ALOHA® model results in under 5 minutes. These seamless integrations model toxic plumes and 3D wind fields over roadmaps, satellite images, Google Maps and Google Earth to provide the most current information possible viewable on a mobile device or iPad. According to the U.S. Navy Research Laboratory, “75% of direct exposure fatalities trace their origin to the first 15 minutes of an event. If effective response begins in 3-5 minutes, 85% of these fatalities can be avoided.”
