FLIR MU-series is the most technologically advanced thermal night vision system available to the maritime industry today. It is a powerful, gyro-stabilized multi-sensor, long range, thermal night vision system.



MU-602C includes a cooled midwave, high-resolution 640 x 512 pixel thermal camera. It has a 14X optical zoom between a 28º and a 2º field of view. It comes standard with and a high-resolution 550-line color camera. The daylight camera offers a 28X optical zoom. MU-602CL is also equipped with a low-light black and white camera. MU-602CLW is completed with an uncooled long-wave high resolution 640 x 480 pixel thermal camera giving the MU-Series multi-spectral capabilities.

Ideal for detecting targets at short range.

FLIR MV-series offer a thermal imaging camera equipped with an uncooled Vanadium Oxide (VOx) detector producing thermal images of 640 x 480 pixels. It is the more affordable multi-sensor solution. The thermal imaging camera zooms between a 24.5° and a 4° field of view.
MV-604C is equipped with a thermal imaging camera and a visible color camera.
MV-604CL comes with a black & white low light camera as well.

  • Pan/tilt: all versions of the MU- / MV-Series can pan 360° continuously and tilt +/- 90°. This provides excellent situational awareness.
  • Active gyro-stabilization: provides steady imagery, even in rough seas; this is critical for getting the most out of the FLIR MU- / MV-Series long-range imaging capability.
  • Radar tracking: allows operators to use the FLIR MU- / MV-Series to identify and track specified radar returns, enhancing vessel safety in low visibility conditions.
  • Video tracker: the user can select a given target that can be automatically tracked by the video tracker. Selecting and engaging in tracking mode is easily done by the touch of a button. Once the tracker is engaged, the camera will follow the object as long as it can be seen.
  • Picture-in Picture mode: with the Picture-in-Picture mode (PIP) two sensors can be displayed on a single display. The user can select which sensor to display as full screen.
  • Digital detail enhancement (DDE): assures a crisp thermal image even in scenes with extreme temperature dynamics.
  • Continuous optical zoom: The FLIR MU- / MV-series have a continuous optical zoom on the thermal image allowing to have a closer look at objects which are far away.
  • Ball up / Ball down installation: The FLIR MU- / MV-series can be installed in ball-up or ball-down position, giving you more flexibility installing it on your vessel.
