FLIR Systems, Inc. has added a cooled thermal camera to its M-Series platform, the FLIR M500 multi-sensor maritime camera, available from September 2017.

The FLIR M500's cooled midwave, 640x512 thermal camera's ability to detect very small temperature variations translates into greater detail and enhanced image clarity. FLIR cooled thermal technology and the M500's 14X optical zoom lens also provides better early detection of vessels, key landmarks and navigation aids. An integrated high-definition visible camera improves navigational awareness, allowing easy identification of vessels and landmarks in both daytime and lowlight conditions. Equipped with active gyro-stabilization for steady imagery in rough seas, the FLIR M500 also includes video tracking to monitor a selected moving or stationary target.
"The FLIR M500 multi-sensor camera is FLIR's most technologically advanced M-Series camera to date," said Grégoire Outters, Vice President and General Manager of FLIR Maritime. "Its cooled thermal camera and superior image quality enables professional captains to discern obstacles and navigation aids with much greater detail, providing them with improved situational awareness and safer navigation around the clock. First responders will appreciate the long-range target detection, stabilization and video tracking for exceptional precision on the water."
