Infrared radiation (IR) is electromagnetic radiation (EMR) with longer wavelengths than those of visible light, and is therefore generally invisible to the human eye (although IR at wavelengths up to 1050 nm from specially pulsed lasers can be seen by humans under certain conditions). It is sometimes called infrared light.

List of U.S. military vehicles by supply catalog designation

This is the G-series List of U.S. military vehicles by supply catalog designation. The U.S. Army Ordnance Corps Supply Catalog used an alpha-numeric system, based on a Standard Nomenclature List from about the mid-1920s to about 1958, in which the G-series numbers were designated to represent the various U.S. military vehicles and directly related materiel.
