The Complete Visual System for Seeing Targets at Night

The FLIR M400’s advanced 640 x 480 sensor delivers stunning thermal video in total darkness and lowlight conditions.

An HD Color visible camera with 30X zoom and a tight-beam LED spotlight augment target identification for added safety.

The M400 offers a continuous optical thermal zoom lens (up to 4×) for seeing vessels and objects at greater distances.

Active gyro-stabilization and radar tracking keep important targets in view at all times.

Short and Long-Range Detection

M400's thermal camera features a 4x optical zoom lens so targets remain in clear, crisp focus right up to maximum magnification.

Thermal and Visible-Light Payloads

Combination thermal sensor with up to 3X optical zoom and HD Color camera with 30X zoom.

Built for Harsh Conditions

Rugged, waterproof gimbal enclosure with automatic window heaters keeps image clear, while gyro-stabilization ensures steady viewing in heavy seas.
