AbstractPrinceton Nanotechnology Systems (PNTS) has teamed with researchers from Wright State University, Dayton, OH, to provide a novel, comprehensive response to SBIR Topic A10-104 entitled, Compact Scalable System for Human Identification and State Assessment. In this Phase I SBIR program, we propose to investigate the feasibility of a multipurpose, multispectral system that captures, extracts, classifies and exploits human signatures for 1) use as biometrics to recognize identity; and 2) human affective (emotional) state assessment to identify stress/hostile intent. Given the myriad sensor technologies potentially useful for these tasks, the teams extensive experience across the electromagnetic spectrum, ranging from microwave and terahertz through infrared, visible light, x-ray and gamma-ray wavelengths, will be leveraged to define an optimal suite of architectured solutions. By coupling WSU expertise in radiation physics, sensor hardware, image processing algorithm development, human anatomy and physiology, human modeling and the psychology of emotion, with the expertise of PNTS in developing and delivering practical solutions to challenging DoD-relevant problems, we will transition laboratory-based human signature science to valuable commercial products, with application to security, surveillance, medical, educational and social domains.
