Does anyone have knowledge of what happened to the USNRC mobile 

What physically happened to the vehicles/equipment?  The radiochemists 
that staffed these labs?

What was the rationale for discontinuing these mobile laboratories?  What 
replaced the analytical need that these lab(s) filled?

Any background information on these and other mobile laboratories in the 
United States would be appreciated (DOE Hotspot, DOE Rascal, State mobile 
laboratories, commercial).
