FLIR Systems, the 2016 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, Platinum Award Winner for Best Thermal, Infrared Camera System, is introducing two new compact additions to its popular M-Series marine thermal cameras for recreational boating, the FLIR M100 and M200, and introduced its latest generation of Raymarine® multifunction displays (MFDs).

The M100 and M200 thermal cameras provide enhanced awareness while fishing, sailing, or cruising at night. The Raymarine Axiom MFDs include built-in RealVision 3D sonar powered by the Raymarine Lighthouse 3 operating system.

FLIR’s most compact pan-and-tilt marine thermal cameras to date, the FLIR M100 and M200 are engineered with FLIR’s Boson™ high-performance thermal camera core, which features an integrated multi-core video processor that delivers superior image quality and artificial intelligence features.

M100 and M200 Key Features

Easy Installation on Any Vessel

IP video technology simplifies installation by eliminating extra video signal cables.  A simple Ethernet connection allows the M100 and M200 to network with multiple compatible MFDs

Stay Alert and Stay Safe

FLIR ClearCruise™ IR Analytics technology keeps an eye on dangerous obstacles when combined with new Raymarine Axiom MFDs.

More Thermal Capability for Less

Raymarine Axiom MFD

When the M100 and M200 are combined with a Raymarine Axiom MFD, users can take advantage of FLIR’s new ClearCruise™ intelligent thermal analytics that brings boaters an advanced level of awareness and safety by visually and audibly alerting the operator when “non-water” objects such as boats, obstacles, or navigation markers are identified in the scene.

Raymarine Axiom MFD with RealVision 3D Sonar represents technology anglers have been asking for since day one – the ability to see what’s below, behind, and to the sides of the boat, all at once and in three-dimensions.

The new rugged, all-glass touch screens are available in 7-, 9-, and 12-inch display sizes and come pre-installed with Raymarine’s new LightHouse 3 operating system.

Combined with Axiom’s fast quad core processor, LightHouse 3 delivers an intuitive and powerful navigation experience through a redesigned interface that is easy to personalize.

“Our latest Raymarine and thermal innovations are game changers for boaters,” said FLIR President and CEO Andy Teich.

“With simplified operation, unique RealVision 3D sonar, and our advanced ClearCruise object identification technology, users have the ability to see more, know more, and operate more safely on the water.”
