Do you intend to have a separate display for this? Or do you want to feed it into your existing chartplotters?

If you're going separate, any garden-variety car backup camera add-on would work. If you're going to use your plotter... it gets complicated.

Some plotters have analog camera inputs. Going wireless for this (presumably to avoid running video cable) would require an RF-analog receiver and a matching RF sender on the camera.

Some plotters support IP network cameras. Axis has made several, including gateway boxes to allow using analog cameras (to bring old cameras into a networked setup).

So how do you want to display the picture?
