2021 NMEA Awards: Marine Camera: Teledyne/FLIR M364C

Teledyne/FLIR M364C

Featuring a high-definition, low-light camera and one of the most advanced FLIR thermal imaging cores, the Teledyne/FLIR M364C provides a high level of awareness on the water. The camera uses multispectral imaging to deliver FLIR Color Thermal Vision (CTV) technology. It convinced the judges in the Marine Camera category of the National Marine Electronics Association’s (NMEA) 2021 Awards program when they named the M364C the winner.

Color Thermal Vision

The M364C contains a thermal-imaging sensor and HD low-light camera for high-level multispectral imaging. The ability to capture thermal and visible-light detail allows CTV to offer a more complete view of what lies ahead. It also blends visible camera details with a thermal image, overlaying color imagery that lets captains positively identify navigation aids and other vessels within the thermal scene.

What the M364C sees can be displayed on a chartplotter screen with bright colors even in low light.

High-Definition Navigation

With the M364C’s visible payload, it’s like having a pair of high-powered binoculars incorporated into a helm display. The M364C’s low-light HD visible imaging sensor features optical and digital long-range zoom to deliver target identification capabilities for boats and objects that are far away.

What looks like a dot on the horizon to the human eye is brought into focus with the M364C.

A Steady View in Rough Seas

The M364C offers improved image stabilization using an integrated attitude heading reference system (AHRS) sensor that provides a captain with a steady view in rough seas. Two-axis mechanical stabilization virtually eliminates the effects of pitch heave and yaw.

For law-enforcement and search and rescue, the M364C provides a clear view in rough seas.


Employing video-over-IP and ethernet connectivity, the M364C is easy to integrate with major brands of multifunction navigation displays. Employ tough-screen control and camera viewing on the latest MFDs from Furuno, Garmin and Raymarine. The M364C also has analog video output for connecting with legacy systems.

The M364C can collaborate with multifunction displays from major manufacturers.
