FLIR First Mate
Handheld Thermal Imager
First Mate gives every mariner the power to see at night like never before. The world's first waterproof, handheld, high-performance maritime thermal night vision camera that is also affordable. First Mate lets you navigate with confidence anywhere, anytime! Whether you're on a yacht, recreational powerboat, fishing boat, sailboat, or anything in between, you'll be able to see clearly and navigate safely in total darkness.
First Mate gives you the power to see more - and to see farther - than every other night vision technology around:
- See clearly in total darkness - unlike other night vision systems, First Mate requires no light at all
- See logs, rocks, land, and other hazards that radar can miss
- Boat with confidence at night knowing that you can see harbor entrances and navigation channels in total darkness.
- See with FLIR's award-winning maritime thermal night vision technology in the palm of your hand
First Mate can help you see people in the water better than any other night vision technology. Finding someone in the water after dark with a searchlight is more a matter of luck than skill, but First Mate lets you search large areas quickly. Bottom Line: There is no better tool around to help you find a person in the water.
Flexible Thermal Night Vision for any Vessel
The First Mate thermal night vision camera basic package comes with everything you need to navigate with confidence, 24 hours a day, including:
- Switch between White-hot and Black-hot image presentation modes
- On-Screen Symbology
- An Optional 2x Lens Extender for Improved Long-Range Imaging Performance
Use Anywhere You Need to See at Night
Because First Mate isn't permanently mounted to the vessel, you can take it anywhere you need to see clearly after dark.
