FLIR First Mate HM-224:
Handheld thermal imaging camera for maritime navigation and safety

The FLIR First Mate HM-224 handheld camera is the all new night time camera with a 240x180 resolution, 19mm focal length, and 24° × 18°  field of view. The First Mate HM-224 allows you to Freeze Frame specific views while using the camera. FLIR's First Mate family of handheld thermal night vision cameras give mariners on any type of vessel the power to see clearly in total darkness. The FLIR First Mate HM-224 uses the same technology as FLIR's best-in-class Navigator II, Voyager II, and M-Series thermal night vision systems, First Mate gives every boater the information they need to operate more safely night and day.

Using a high-quality thermal imaging core, the First Mate HM-224 provides better image clarity and detail than earlier systems, so boaters can see more of their surroundings than with any other night vision technology in the world. FLIR's advanced image-processing algorithms produce crisp, clear thermal video day and night.

Seeing Red: First Mate II's new InstAlert feature highlights the hottest objects in a scene 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.

First Mate cameras help boaters:

  • See people, vessels, and navigation hazards in total darkness. First Mate's VOx microbolometer provides high-quality imaging for a fraction of the cost of comparable cameras, giving sailors the detailed thermal imagery, cutting edge performance, and improved detection and recognition ranges they need in total darkness, even through smoke, dust, and light fog.

  • See faint heat signatures from things that radar can miss like floating debris and bridge abutments in any lighting conditions; because First Mate cameras see heat, not light, they see things the naked eye can't.

  • See more – and see farther – than with other night vision technologies. Because First Mate thermal cameras see clearly without any light whatsoever, they can see farther at night than technologies that need ambient light to work and they can see heat sources that these other cameras could never find.

 

The Power of Thermal Imaging in the Palm of Your Hand

1. Shuttered Eyepiece: Keeps light from coming out of the viewfinder, helping the operator to stay covert.
2. Multiple lens options available: Choose the 19mm lens with 24° field of view (and its optional 2× optical extender), or the longer-range 65mm lens with 7° field of view for maximum standoff viewing capability.
3. Rugged design: All-weather design is built to withstand the demands of day-in, day-out law enforcement operations. It’s even submersible.
4. Hot Shoe Attachment: The included “hot shoe” attachment provides power-in and RCA composite video-out connections while maintaining the camera’s tripod mounting capability.
5. Two-sided Hand Strap: Accommodates both left-handed and right-handed users.
6. SD Card Slot: Allows for easy field upgrades and the storage of captured still images and video evidence on the removable SD card
7. USB2 Connection: Rapid transfer of still images and video from the H-Series to a PC.
8. Battery Compartment: Four rechargeable AA NiMH batteries are good for more than six hours of continuous operation. H-Series also runs on standard non-rechargeable alkaline and Lithium Ion AA batteries.
