FLIR First Mate Maritime Thermal Imager

FLIR's First Mate is a hand-held thermal imaging camera that offers high-performance at a low cost. It provides every mariner with the power to see at night like never before, navigate with confidence anywhere, and at any time.

First Mate can be mounted on your boat, or held in your hand providing you with "go-anywhere", portable thermal night vision. As well, the long battery life doesn't require an vessel power supply.

The First Mate uses a 240 x 180 thermal imaging core, and provides four times the image clarity and detail of earlier systems. The advanced image-processing algorithms produce crisp, clear thermal video day and night, in good or bad weather.
