FLIR Systems debuts products at New York show

FLIR Systems launched two new products last week at the New York Boat Show.

FLIR Systems launched two new products last week at the New York Boat Show — the Raymarine Quantum Wireless CHIRP radar and the Raymarine Dragonfly 7 Pro.

The Quantum Wireless CHIRP is a marine radar dome that features CHIRP pulse compression technology, which uses multiple compressed radar pulses with FLIR’s ATX advanced target separation technology to display targets such as boats, landmarks, rocks, buoys and weather cells.

The technology allows the identification of targets as close as 18 feet, and offshore Quantum delivers long-range imagery. The company said it weighs 12 pounds and reduces power consumption to extend vessel battery life.

“We are thrilled to bring our new solid-state CHIRP radar technology to the recreational boating market,” FLIR maritime segment VP and general manager Grégoire Outters said in a statement. “This breakthrough technology, coupled with our ATX advanced target separation technology, will change the game in terms of performance, ease of use and connectivity.”

The new Dragonfly 7 PRO, designed with the same features as the Dragonfly 5 Pro, features a 7-inch display.

Dragonfly 7 Pro supports Navionics charts, C-MAP by Jeppesen, and Raymarine LightHouse charts, and it comes bundled with C-MAP Essentials or Navionics+ maps on microSD.

Starting at $649.99, Dragonfly 7 Pro will be available in the first quarter of 2016 through Raymarine-authorized dealers and retailers.
