Abstract
To support DHS's goals of developing new physiological and behavioral sensor technologies for homeland security operations that determine intent to deceive, Veridical Research and Design Corporation proposes to determine the feasibility of developing a conceptual framework and architecture for an ocular-based method of detecting deception intention. The approach is to empirically derive ocular-based measures of cognitive load and arousal, including pupil diameter, blinks and gaze, and instantiate the findings as a model, called OBSERVE (Ocular-Based Screening Evaluation and Real-time Verification Examination). The output will be used to define a theoretical framework that will serve to delineate the conceptual architecture of a system called OBSERVER (Ocular-Based Screening Evaluation and Real-time Verification Examination Remotely) that can be employed to non-intrusively assess an individual's intent to deceive.
