    Scouting Is Heating Up

    /

    FLIR’s Ocean Scout thermal camera could ease the challenge  of spotting things when out at sea either at night or day.

    This camera relies on thermal imaging as it picks up the heat that objects emit. Pocket sized, it displays data on a high-resolution LCD display. An InstAlert mode can be used in case of “man overboard,” highlighting the hottest objects in the water.

    Various resolutions are available, from 240*180 for the OceanScout 240 to 640*512 for the OceanScout 640. Video refresh rate is 30 Hz, with a start up time of less than 1.5 seconds.

    OceanScout’s prices range from US $1.999 for the OceanScout 240 to US $3.500 for its OceanScout 640.
