To address the Armyf?Ts need for a real-time intelligent imaging system capable of automatic identifying individualf?Ts suspicious and/or harmful intent from a standoff distance of 45 meters in unconstrained indoor/outdoor settings based on biometric data, Irvine Sensors Corporation (ISC) proposes to develop new Personal Intent Recognition Imaging (PIRI) system. This system is based on: a) several proprietary image processing algorithms using both spectral and spatio-temporal features and tailored to recognition of harmful/suspicious intent, and b) a novel hardware/software implementation of these algorithms in form of a combination of f?osmart sensorsf?? (compact multispectral cameras augmented with FPGA-based processor logic) and a laptop computer. The PIRI system will offer reliable recognition of harmful intent in such military applications as border patrol, stand-off interrogation, surveillance and commercial applications for access control and surveillance at enterprises, shopping areas etc. In Phase I ISC will demonstrate feasibility of PIRI by implementing a proof-of-concept software functionally equivalent to the future PIRI operational prototype and based on preliminary determination of psycho-physiological and physical indicators most adequate for intent identification. Phase I will result in functional design of an operational prototype. In Phase II ISC will produce this prototype and demonstrate its functionality in an interactive real-time mode.
