Abstract: The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) has been designing and developing a decision aid called the Local-Rapid Evaluation of Atmospheric Conditions L-REAC®) System. Please note that the L-REAC® System trademark is owned by the Department of the Army, Washington DC, 20310. This tool is a product of the 20032007 Urban Field Studies, which investigated the airflow and stability characterization around a single urban building, and small building clusters. The primary goal for L-REAC® is to improve Soldier/civilian situational awareness of environmental airborne hazards during potentially life-threatening events. L-REAC® accomplishes this goal by mapping a near-real-time wind field and plume (when available) over an area of interest. L-REAC® System, Volume 1 presented the L-REAC® "Proof of Concept" System. L-REAC® System, Volume 2 described the L-REAC® Prototype. L-REAC® System, Volume 3 described the Operational L-REAC® System, which continues to be used in real world events. L-REAC® System, Volume 4 summarized detailed L-REAC® System feedback given by professional and volunteer emergency first responders. In this Volume (#5), the Mobile L-REAC®"Proof of Concept" System, four forward-looking Feasibility Studies and a brief L-REAC® Project résumé are documented.
