Awarding Strategies using High-Tec Engineering

FLIROcean Scout™

Marine Thermal Handheld Camera

Ocean Scout is a rugged, compact thermal night vision camera that lets you see other vessels, landmarks, buoys, and floating debris in total darkness. All three Ocean Scout models offer the tools you need to see clearly, steer confidently, and respond quickly in an emergency. With its high resolution LCD display and FLIR’s industry-leading thermal sensor technology, Ocean Scout makes your time on the water safer and more relaxing.

Be Aware

Ocean Scout helps you see marine traffic and spot navigational aids on even the darkest nights. Visual awareness on the water can be key to avoiding danger. Use the Ocean Scout to quickly scan your surroundings for other vessels, look for buoys and other navigational aids, and detect key landmarks such as islands or docks.

Steer Clear

Navigate rivers channels and the open water with confidence, day or night. The clear view provided by the Ocean Scout will help you avoid rocks, floating logs, and other dangerous obstacles. You can easily steer clear of hazards such as kayakers, personal watercraft, and small boats that are running without lights. You can even detect – and avoid – marine mammals above the water’s surface.

Stay Safe

Ocean Scout is a lifesaving tool for “man overboard” emergencies. The Ocean Scout can detect the body heat of anyone in the water, allowing you to quickly identify and rescue people or pets. Use InstAlert™ mode to highlight the hottest objects in red – and make the search and recovery go even faster.
