Search and Rescue

FLIR answers the call because you do.

In airborne and maritime missions, Search and Rescue operators around the world have made FLIR the infrared imager of choice for one simple reason: FLIR works when you need it to.

FLIR sensors allow you to cover more area in less time by interrogating radar returns quickly and accurately so crews know right away whether to continue on their search pattern or investigate a target.

But more important than that, FLIR is proven to be the most reliable sensor system with the best support, so you can know that your infrared imaging system will be there when you need it.
