New Stuff: FLIR Ocean Scout TK Thermal Camera
February 19, 2016
FLIR Systems, Inc. announced the FLIR Ocean Scout TK thermal camera at the 2016 Miami International Boat Show. A sub-$600, pocket-sized thermal vision monocular, the Ocean Scout TK features FLIR’s low-cost Lepton micro-camera core.
The smallest and most affordable model in the Ocean Scout series, Ocean Scout TK creates high-contrast images using heat, rather than visible light. This makes it possible to detect heat emitted by boats, buoys, pilings, people and landmarks in total darkness. Ocean Scout TK also reveals people overboard and marine mammals breaking the surface of the water.
Pocket-sized and designed for one-handed use, Ocean Scout TK is designed to withstand rain, wind, and even submersion in shallow water. The unit can also store up to 1,000 JPEG images and 4 hours of video, and features a 5-hour rechargeable internal battery.
