IR Garrison patches are made with IR Reflective film.
This patch reflects white light to the naked eye as well as reflects infrared light to an NVG device.
For example, when white light ie… headlights, flashlights, moonlight etc… hits the patch, the light reflects back to the source of the light.
The most familiar use of this kind of reflective film is used with street signs and road markers.
While this patch can be viewed with Night Vision devices as well, this is not recommended for a covert operation.
