|Usage and history|
The Low Visual Signature (LoViS) series of blaster weapons was developed by Chyornov Combat Systems and was the company's answer to the Xerrol Nightstinger rifle. While the bolts from a LoViS weapon were not entirely invisible, they were extremely hard to see using human eyes; the radiation they emitted was primarily in the ultraviolet spectrum and all that was visible was a violet streak that at night was faint enough that it might easily be missed, or dismissed as a trick of the light. In the daytime these bolts would be invisible, as it took very little light to wash out the faint color of the weapon's bolts.
