- 1986 Hughes Aircraft won a contract to produce a field version of Stanford Research Institutes chemical warfare detection system. Using CO2 lasers to create an infra-red spectrum, spectral absorption techniques were used to detect chemical warfare agents at a distance. Called the Remote Active Spectrometer (RAS), Hughes Aircraft successfully completed field tests at Dugway Proving Grounds.
