Thermal Cameras (wb)Software (wb)

FLIR Systems has put more vessels to sea with thermal imagers onboard than anyone in the world. Thermal imagers make images from heat, not light. They work as well or better at night than they do during the day, and see their targets from much farther away than the human eye. The safety benefits of thermal imagers are clear: they allow boat operators to see outcroppings of land, debris in the water, channel markers and any other potential hazard night and day, in good weather and bad. 

Put to sea with FLIR – you won’t believe what you haven’t been seeing.
