WILSONVILLE, Ore. (July 10, 2017) – FLIR Systems, Inc., (NASDAQ: FLIR) today announced the expansion of its Raymarine Axiom™ Multifunction Display (MFD) line with the introduction of the Axiom Pro. Designed for serious offshore enthusiasts and professional captains, Axiom Pro features Raymarine’s HybridTouch™ user experience, combining multi-touchscreen controls with an ergonomic keypad for additional confidence in rough seas. For the serious offshore angler, Axiom Pro is available with a 1 kW, high-powered CHIRP sonar and Raymarine’s built-in, advanced, RealVision 3D sonar.
The new Axiom Pro line is available in 9-, 12- and 16-inch display sizes, and each model is available with Raymarine exclusive RealVision™ 3D sonar. Axiom Pro’s fish-finding capability is upgraded with an optional, internal 1kW CHIRP sonar. This powerful offshore sonar employs a wide spectrum of CHIRP sonar frequencies and enables anglers to see through dense schools of baitfish, identify thermoclines and simultaneously target gamefish in deep water.
Engineered to perform in bright sunlight, Axiom Pro displays feature high-definition, In-Plane Switching (IPS) display technology, maximizing viewing angles and reducing blackouts when wearing polarized glasses. Powered by Raymarine’s new LightHouse 3 operating system and coupled with Axiom Pro’s fast, quad core processor, Axiom Pro delivers an intuitive and fluid navigation experience through an improved, easily-personalized interface. Axiom Pro’s flexible design and LightHouse 3 OS enables integration with multiple Axiom displays, CHIRP radar, Evolution autopilot and FLIR thermal night vision technology.
“Raymarine’s combination of Axiom Pro’s RealVision 3D sonar and built-in 1kW CHIRP sonar is a game-changer,” said Grégoire Outters, Vice President and General Manager of FLIR Maritime. “Axiom Pro provides serious offshore anglers and boaters with larger display sizes, deep water CHIRP sonar performance and the flexibility of HybridTouch control for an exceptional, all-in-one navigation experience.”
The Raymarine Axiom Pro will debut at the 2017 International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trade Show (ICAST) in Orlando, Florida, July 11-14. Cruising and sailing customers can also take advantage of new Axiom Pro-S models, which feature a high-performance multifunction display and chart plotter with a built-in, single-channel CHIRP sonar, starting at $2,299.99 USD. Axiom Pro models with RealVision 3D and 1kW CHIRP sonar start at $2,549.99, and will be available in the third quarter through FLIR’s network of Raymarine dealers.
