Night Vision for the Masses

Bookmark and Share

FLIR Systems’ new First Mate MS has the potential to put thermal night vision capabilities into the hands of every sailor, thanks to its compact size and low price. The First Mate MS uses the same technology as FLIR’s other products, like the M-Series, but weighs just 12oz and measures less than a 7in long.

Two versions are available, which provide higher and lower resolutions. Both versions offer 2x digital zoom and multiple color presentations, including white hot, black hot and marine red, to provide optimum viewing and protect your night vision. The First Mate MS powers up in just seconds, and its Li-Ion battery provides hours of continuous operation. It even comes with its own flashlight function.

From $1,999. FLIR, flir.com
