Navigation in icy waters is always a challenge. In november 2011 FURUNO and FLIR tested the equipment onboard Oratank from M.H.Simonsen ApS, in the Western part of Greenland.
The material below shows the results. Infrared cameras don't distinguish between day and night, so pitch black in the night appears clear as daylight on the FLIR equipment.
This video shows a compilation of the recordings and gives a good impression of how the technology works.
Below is FLIRs own presentation - Ice Detection with Thermal Imaging - of the results of the trip.
