FLIR Introduces First Mate II


Portland, OR – FLIR Systems (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced the launch of the next generation of its popular First Mate line of handheld thermal night vision cameras. The First Mate II family has the same thermal imaging performance that boaters have come to expect, but adds the powerful InstAlert feature.

InstAlert is an automated image processing feature that highlights the strongest heat signatures in the image in red, instantly alerting boaters to people who have fallen overboard or hazards along the way.

First Mate is the most popular line of handheld marine thermal night vision cameras in the world, giving every boater the power to see clearly whenever it’s hard to see, even in total darkness.

Ultra-compact, easy to use, and light weight, First Mate II models are available 240 × 180 or 320 × 240 resolutions and a wide variety of lens options. They also long battery life, a rugged, all-weather design, and some models can plug into external monitor for even greater flexibility.

First Mate II provides go-anywhere thermal night vision for everyone on the water. For additional technical information, or to see a demonstration of these revolutionary new handheld thermal night vision cameras, contact FLIR today.
