A description of the developed prototype of a remote detector of hazardous substance vapors based on a tunable 13С16О2 laser is given. Results of test measurements of laser radiation transmission of organic liquid vapors (acetone, ammonia, ethanol, gasoline) are presented. The remote detection of acetone and ammonia vapors at distances up to 100 m is experimentally implemented.
