    Question What would you choose?

    For water rescue/recovery work only...

    What would you choose, and why?

    Night vision binoculars or thermal imager?

    I would go with the TIC. The victim on the surface will be more visable with a TIC because they will always be warmer than the water. With night vision you still need to be able to see and identify the victim. A person floating in a lifejacket and possibly not moving could be difficult to see with night vision alone. With the TIC you would see the glowing head out of the water, even in rough water.
