Night Time on the Water – Made Safer with FLIR
FLIR Maritime for Recreational Boating
FLIR Maritime thermal imaging systems turn night into day, keeping you safe and secure on the water and letting you boat with confidence. Plus, FLIR thermal imaging works during the day too allowing you to see clearly through solar glare, smoke and even light fog.
See the Heat – Night and Day
Thermal imaging cameras detect, and display images based on tiny differences in heat, not light. From pitch black to moonlight to severe midday glare–FLIR detectors capture the thermal energy emitted or reflected by everything, even ice. FLIR cameras then convert the small differences in temperature into easy-to-interpret infrared video images, allowing you to see at night and navigate in total darkness.
Boat Safer and Avoid Danger
Day or night FLIR thermal imaging detects hazards like jetties, rocks, navigation aids and more. Charged by daylight these objects continue to emit infrared heat all night long.
Thermal imaging instantly detects kayaks, paddleboards, and personal watercraft. The kayaker’s own body heat makes him a bright target for FLIR thermal imaging.
Thermal imaging is the fastest way to detect a person in the water. FLIR’s InstAlert™ color palette can even highlight the hottest target in a scene in red, making detection faster and easier.
Enhanced Situational Awareness
FLIR thermal imagers make it easy to confirm the positions of navigation aids and landmarks. Systems with pan, tilt and zoom gimbals can even integrate with select multifunction navigation displays and radar systems making target ID even easier.
Thermal imaging instantly reveals other vessels masked by background lighting and solar glare. Because they use heat and not light to see, FLIR cameras deliver the same high-quality images day or night.
Thermal imaging not only lets you see approaching vessels, but also the activities of those onboard. Many systems offer digital and optical zoom to further enhance small or distant objects.
