The World's Sixth Sense
FLIR Systems, Inc. designs, develops, manufactures, markets, and distributes technologies that enhance perception and awareness. We bring innovative sensing solutions into daily life through our thermal imaging systems, visible-light imaging systems, locator systems, measurement and diagnostic systems, and advanced threat detection systems. Our products improve the way people interact with the world around them, enhance public safety and well-being, increase energy efficiency, and enable healthy and entertained communities. Pioneers in thermal imaging, we were founded in 1978, originally providing infrared imaging systems that were installed on vehicles for use in conducting energy audits.
Today our advanced systems and components are used for a wide variety of thermal imaging, situational awareness, and security applications, including airborne and ground-based surveillance, condition monitoring, navigation, recreation, research and development, manufacturing process control, search and rescue, drug interdiction, transportation safety and efficiency, border and maritime patrol, environmental monitoring, and chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives threat detection.
CAPABILITIES AND PRODUCTS:
LAND OPERATIONS Representing a new generation of powerful, mobile, and deployable solutions for mobile surveillance applications, FLIR's mobile surveillance solutions combine gyro-stabilized, multi-sensor thermal imaging systems with ground surveillance radar, lasers, and tactical command and control software. These integrated solutions are ruggedized to perform in the most demanding of environments.
AIRBORNE OPERATIONS Extraordinary Vision for Every Mission With more than 3,000 EO/IR sensors on order or delivered, the Star SAFIRE® series provides the longest range performance in its class. This series of products includes the Star SAFIRE 380-HD, the world's most widely deployed full-HD EO/IR system. Through its unique ability to operate on any platform and in the harshest conditions, the Star SAFIRE series has been installed on more than 100 different types of helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft, ships, land vehicles and observation towers in 70+ nations around the globe.
MARITIME OPERATIONS Outfitting both small and larger maritime platforms, FLIR Systems offers fully marinized long-range and compact solutions. FLIR’s compact multi-sensor systems are unmatched in providing high performance in a small, lightweight package. From riverine and Special Forces boats, to littoral craft and capital ships, FLIR offers fully marinized surveillance and targeting sensors for a range of missions. FLIR's marinized long-range and gyro stabilized sensors were developed and tailored for maritime installation to provide maximum sensor range performance and increased capability over typical pan/tilt systems. Proven through extensive operational experience in the harsh environments, and on a variety of maritime platforms, hundreds of these rugged and reliable sensors are fielded on vessels around the world.
