Bill Dixon, chairman of the jury of the DAME, presented the award to the winner of the prestigious prize this morning at the start of METS in Amsterdam, Netherlands. An excerpt of the jury report on the DAME winner:

"The overall winner of the DAME Award 2009 is FLIR Systems from the Netherlands for the M-626L Series Thermal Night Vision System. This system incorporates a micro-lux, low-light camera for improved visibility during twilight hours and a 26-degree field of view - an improvement of 25 percent over previous cameras.

"The judges were impressed by the unit's sleek design, ethernet capability, and ease of installation by any OEM. The unit is operated with a remote joystick from anywhere on the vessel. While the cost is relatively high, the jury felt that the unit provides user satisfaction beyond anything currently on the market. Even in total darkness the captain of a vessel can see channel markers, other boats, people in the water, and the shore line from greater distances than ever before."
