FLIR Systems announced that recent tests to determine how well its thermal imaging cameras could see oil on water produced outstanding results.

In the critical days of what has become a national emergency, FLIR's M-Series and First Mate maritime imagers are proving their worth in the Gulf Coast providing valuable aid and assistance to oil containment and recovery crews working around the clock, according to the company.

In testing done off New Jersey, FLIR maritime thermal longwave imaging cameras succeed at providing crisp, clear real?time video and photos of any temperature oil in all types of seas, in glaring sunlight, with no light at all, and from just about any angle.

Footage of FLIR thermal imaging cameras at work has been posted on YouTube.
