While thermal cameras give mariners superior awareness on the water, thermal imaging alone does not capture important color information from other vessels or navigation aids.
FLIR's new dual-payload M364C combines two cutting-edge imaging systems in a single, robust pan-and tilt-marine camera housing to produce highly detailed thermal and visible imagery. The result is increased situational awareness and safer navigation via increased object identification capability in any lighting conditions, from total darkness to full sunlight.
How It Works
Color Thermal Vision
The M364C is equipped with a high-definition low-light camera and one of the most advanced FLIR thermal-imaging cores. This combination of sensors enables exclusive FLIR Color Thermal Vision™ (CTV) technology. Color Thermal Vision blends a visible camera image with a thermal image, allowing captains to positively identify navigation aids, vessels or other objects within the thermal scene. This multispectral imaging technology affords safer navigation to boaters while supporting enhanced search-and-rescue capabilities for first responders.
High Definition Navigation
With the M364C’s visible payload, it's like having a pair of high-powered stabilized binoculars incorporated into your helm display. The FLIR M364C’s low-light HD visible-imaging sensor features both optical and digital long-range zoom. Combined with gyro stabilization, the HD visible zoom camera delivers impressive long-range target identification capabilities.
A Steady View in Rough Seas
The FLIR M364C camera offers improved image stabilization using an integrated attitude heading reference system (AHRS) sensor, providing captains with a steady view in rough seas. Two-axis mechanical stabilization virtually eliminates the effects of pitch, heave and yaw.
Employing video-over-IP and Ethernet connectivity, the FLIR M364C is easy to integrate with the major brands of multifunction navigation displays. Enjoy touch-screen control and camera viewing on the latest MFDs from Furuno, Garmin, Raymarine and Simrad. The M364C also features analog video output for connecting with legacy systems.
Seamless integration, outstanding imaging performance via FLIR Color Thermal Vision technology, optical and digital long-range zoom, and enhanced gyro-stabilization make the M364C an valuable tool for law enforcement professionals, commercial mariners and recreational boaters who require elite-level situational awareness.
Part of FLIR’s M300 Series, the M364C has a suggested retail price of $20,495 USD. The M364C and other M300 Series marine cameras are available through FLIR’s network of dealers and retailers. For more, visit: flir.com/m300-series
