FLIR announces compact, low-cost marine thermal vision

THE new Ocean Scout TK thermal vision camera from FLIR is designed specifically for fishing and boating, providing users with the ability to ‘see’ in total darkness or blinding sunlight.

Designed for one-handed use and built tough to handle extreme conditions, the compact yet powerful Ocean Scout TK uses FLIR’s class-leading thermal technology to display images based on heat, not visible light. From showing buoys to rocks, boats and other obstructions out on the water, the Ocean Scout TK provides situational peace of mind in an affordable, easy-to-use package.

Five hours of rechargeable power via an internal Lithium-ion battery, combined with a range of selectable screen displays and the ability to record up to 1000 still images plus video, means the FLIR Ocean Scout TK is a valuable safety tool for all outdoors enthusiasts.  No matter if you are operating in total darkness or dazzling sun glare, the Ocean Scout TK uses a 160 x 120 VOx Microbolometer detector teamed with FLIR’s Proprietary Digital Enhancement software to clearly show what you otherwise might not see, giving you the power to fully assess and visualise your surroundings through thermal vision.

Combining fast start-up and an intuitive user interface, the Ocean Scout TK is submersible (rated IP67), making it ideal for small boats and fishing kayaks. A selection of video palettes – Black Hot, White Hot, InstAlert Rainbow, Iron, Lava, Artic and Graded Fire – allow you to customise the 640 x 480 LCD display to suit conditions and requirements.

The FLIR Ocean Scout TK measures in at just over 10cm in length and weighs 170g, meaning it can be easily stored in a pocket, tackle box or console. The unit comes complete with a lanyard for easy access on the water, a protective lens cap and a USB cable for downloading images and video.

This awesome thermal vision camera is available now from leading marine dealers with a RRP of $899.
