That's hot!

Raytheon works to fix heat-ray in time for Iraq test next year
Raytheon Co., the world's largest missile maker, said it's trying to fix problems with an experimental heat-ray weapon to keep the device on schedule for a field test in Iraq early next year.

Raytheon's new weapon, which is intended to repel hostile forces by creating a sensation of intense heat on skin, doesn't act quickly enough to be effective, said U.S. Marine Corps Col. Wade Hall, who directs the program that would test the device. Waltham, Mass.-based Raytheon is working to resolve the issue, company spokesman Alan Fischer said.

The so-called "active denial" system was developed by Tucson-based Raytheon Missile Systems.
The H is O indeed...
