FLIR Systems announced the FLIR M300 Series, a new generation of maritime thermal cameras delivering advanced awareness-enhancing technologies, safer navigation, and seamless integration with onboard boat systems. FLIR M300 Series cameras are designed for the most demanding professional mariners and first responders who operate in the harshest marine environments.
The successor to FLIR’s industry-leading M-Series of maritime cameras, the next generation M300 Series consists of five models featuring rugged and robust new pan and tilt housings – four models with the FLIR BosonTM 640 or 320 resolution thermal camera cores and various fixed field of view (FoV) lenses, plus a visible-only model, the M300C, featuring a high-definition, color, low-light camera with 30X zoom.
The M300 Series cameras facilitate safer navigation through improved image stabilization using an integrated attitude heading reference system (AHRS) sensor, providing captains with a steady view in rough seas. The M300 Series is also designed to integrate with the latest-generation marine navigation displays, including FLIR’s award-winning Raymarine Axiom® family of multifunction displays.
“Our FLIR M300 Series cameras employ advanced sensing and imaging technologies so first responders, commercial mariners, and recreational boaters can navigate safer in limited visibility,” says Travis Merrill, president of the commercial business Unit at FLIR. “These professional-grade marine camera offer industry-leading performance and deep integration with Raymarine Axiom navigation displays to bring mariners a new level of situational awareness.”
