FLIR Ocean Scout 640 Handheld Thermal-Imaging Camera
With a higher-resolution sensor than its predecessors, the FLIR Ocean Scout 640 makes it easier to identify targets, such as buoys, other vessels, and floating debris, in extreme low-light conditions.
The 640-by-480- resolution display lets the user get more out of that powerful microbolometer, resulting in extended range performance.
FLIR also says the Ocean Scout 640 can identify a human-sized target up to 600 yards away.
Benefit Analysis: Being on the water before dawn and after dusk—or on foggy days—means you’re using your boat to her fullest potential . But what good is it if you don’t enjoy it? Using thermal-imaging devices like this can ensure comfort for you and the crew in conditions that used to leave you tied to the dock.
