Results of a mathematical analysis of the thermal radiation emitted from pyrotechnic compositions in the 5.56 mm to 30 mm family of ammunition indicate that non-luminous, base drag-reducing fumers are not feasible. The major conclusion reached is that no developmental effort on non-luminous, pyrotechnic fumer ammunition should be initiated.
