    "Hammerhead" Eyeing the Inmates

    The "Hammerhead" surveillance system has been in some pretty neat places here in the Northwest. Perhaps where it has been best utilized though is at one of the largest prisons in Washington State.

    The Hammerheads watch a large part of the prison grounds 24/7 all year round in all weather conditions. Its 360 degree field of view (FOV), infrared illumination for night, and 18x zoom to focus on areas of interest make it a formidable "shark" to help keep prisoners in line. More specifically, the Hammerheads are programmed to monitor traffic running alongside a road just outside the tall prison fence that has provided an opportunity to "drive-by throw overs" of different contraband to eager prisoners on the other side. 

    Below are some pictures of the Hammerheads in operation at the prison. Although the Hammerhead doesn't bite, unlike it's seafaring namesake, it leaves a good impression with anyone happening to stare it down as it records your every movement!
