FLIR First Mate II HM-324XP+
Handheld Thermal Night Vision Camera


With the power of First Mate II HM you can see at night like never before. Use it on any vessel or even around the house – this handheld thermal night vision camera run off batteries and displays video on a built-in screen.

First Mate II HM provides go-anywhere thermal imaging for clear vision in total darkness, and through smoke and light fog. Since it’s not permanently mounted to your vessel, you can take it anywhere.

So stay out a little longer, even when everyone else is scurrying for the dock, and enjoy your time on the water with your new First Mate II HM.

First Mate II thermal imaging cameras make pictures from heat, not light. So no matter how much light is available – from pitch black to moonlight to severe midday glare – thermal imagers display clear infrared video. In complete darkness, you can see other vessels, landmarks, rocks, buoys, floating debris and other obstacles.

First Mate II’s new InstAlert™ feature highlights the hottest objects in a scene in red. This is extremely valuable when you’re trying to avoid hazards in your path or in crew overboard situations, when time is of the essence to save a life.

*Not to be used as your primary source of navigation.

  • Compact, light weight, easy-to-use design
