FLIR Systems displayed its latest thermal and assisted docking technologies for the marine market at METSTRADE last week. Products included Raymarine DockSense Alert, the FLIR M300 Series of thermal maritime cameras, and the Scion OTM handheld thermal camera.

Raymarine DockSense Alert is an addition to Raymarine’s intelligent docking technology line. It can be installed on any boat to help skippers safely monitor their surroundings and dock their boats with confidence by accurately measuring distances from the dock and other moored vessels.

The M300 Series is FLIR’s new generation of maritime thermal cameras, consisting of five models that feature rugged and robust pan and tilt housings and integrated attitude heading reference sensors. The dual-sensor M364C and M364C LR models blend thermal and high-definition visible colour video via patented Colour Thermal Vision (CTV) technology for enhanced identification of buoys, vessels and other targets at night.

The Scion OTM (Outdoor Thermal Monocular) is a handheld thermal camera that assists mariners to quickly locate other vessels, landmarks, buoys, and floating debris in total darkness and through glaring light or haze. Built around the FLIR Boson core, it produces clear thermal imaging and records geotagged video. A rugged, IP67-rated housing ensures that the unit can be used in all weathers, and intuitive controls allow single-handed operation, maintaining reliable thermal imaging in the most demanding environments.
