The M-Series pan/tilt re-defines maritime multi-sensor system design, drawing on FLIR's 25 years of experience in building combat-proven airborne and maritime thermal imagers for militaries, Coast Guards, and governmental agencies around the world. If you want to use a tougher, better-performing FLIR, you'll have to join the Special Forces.
With 640 x 480 thermal imaging, M-Series can cameras provide four-times the thermal resolution and more than twice the range performance compared to other systems. M-Series cameras let you see more – and see farther – than ever before. Even in the dead of night.

Comments about M 618CS Gyro Stabilized Premium Multi Sensor Maritime Thermal Night Vision System:
We added the stabilized Raymarine 618CS FLIR a few months ago prior to a west coast trip, a fantastic addition. It lowered the night time blood pressure on the bridge significantly. Even at 20kts at night you can see birds and buoys on the water far enough out that you can avoid them. We used radar/AIS to spot boats at 6-12 miles and start to make them out with the FLIR at 2+ miles. Great combination.
Would recommend a three display setup as we wanted to keep the FLIR, Chart Plotter and Radar/AIS on separate monitors. New crew caught on very fast. Even allowed us to feel more comfortable judging the sea state at night as we could anticipate larger swells/waves as they approached.
