Abstract:

USE OF A SENSOR TO MEASURE THE OCULAR PULSE OF AIRCRAFT PILOTS UNDER STRESSFUL CONDITIONS, CAN PROVIDE THE BASIS FOR A COMPUTER CONTROLLED SYSTEM TO AUTOMATICALLY OR OTHERWISE LOSING CONTROL. BASIC NON-INVASIVE TESTS NORMALLY USED TO ESTIMATE AN INDIVIDUAL'S CIRCULATORY SYSTEM DO NOT PROVIDE ADEQUATE INDICATION OF CRITICAL PHYSIOLOGICAL "BREAK" POINTS. THE PRIMARY TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES IN PHASE I IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPUTER MODEL TO PREDICT THE PRESSURE OF THE BLOOD AT PRINCIPAL JUNCTIONS SUCH AS THE EYE AND THE BRAIN UNDER GRAVITY AND OTHER EFFECTS. A "TRANSMISSION LINE" APPROACH WILL BE USED IN THE CREATION OF THE MODEL. FROM A KNOWLEDGE OF THE PRESSURE, THE DEGREE STRESS A PILOT IS SUBJECT TO CAN BE PREDICTED AND USED AS THE BASIS FOR A SOPHISTICATED SENSOR/CONTROL MECHANISM TO BE DEVELOPED IN PHASE II.
