Exhibit: Dim Tracers

Dim tracers, sometimes called starlight tracers or infrared tracers, emit mostly infrared wavelengths and show little to no visible light when they burn.

Dim tracers help conceal a gunner's location by rendering the tracer stream invisible to the naked eye. Dim tracers also address the problem of night vision devices being overwhelmed by the brightness of traditional tracer rounds.
