PORTLAND, Or. - FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced the release of its new single payload variant of the popular M-Series maritime thermal night vision camera. By offering an M-Series model without the lowlight micro-lux camera, FLIR is able to make M-Series breakthrough features available at a new, lower price.

This new addition to the popular M-Series line provides a 50% improvement in range performance over earlier single payload maritime thermal night vision cameras. This enables users to see navigation hazards like channel markers, outcroppings of land, other boats, and people in the water more clearly - and from farther away - than ever before -- even in total darkness.

M-Series systems incorporate cutting-edge Ethernet connectivity and IP addressability for easy installation, control, and interface with other on-board electronics. Installers can mount M-Series gimbals in either ball-up or ball-down orientation for greater installation flexibility.

The M-Series also incorporates FLIR's exclusive Accu-Point technology, a position control and display feature that gives the operator continuous feedback of where the imager is looking.

As with FLIR's other maritime thermal imagers, M-Series imagers include FLIR's full array of infrared color palettes for easy viewing; users can watch its video on virtually any monitor or multi-function display that has an auxiliary video input.

"Thermal imaging has become an indispensable tool for maritime navigation and safety," said Lou Rota, Vice President of Maritime Business Development at FLIR Systems. "Our MSeries class of products combines our industry-leading thermal cameras with our tested military technology to deliver the ultimate marinized imager for the recreational and commercial marine markets."
