Abstract
To address the Army"s need for human deception detection, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop an Intelligent Stand-off Psycho-Physiological Indicator (I-SPY) system. The I-SPY multi-sensor system synergistically integrates the sensing of human physiological characteristics with human behavioral traits as unique signatures of stress in individuals with intent to deceive. The key innovation in I-SPY is its novel system design, which is a covert, noncontact, nonintrusive detection of deception. The novel fusion of multiple sensing methodologies significantly reduces the false alarm rate (FAR) and improves the detection probability to 95%. The compact and portable (8 in. x 6-in. x 6-in.; ~10 lb) I-SPY system incorporates commercial off-the-shelf components to reduce failure risk and significantly reduce cost. The covert system operates at a 2-m stand-off distance from the suspect, acquires data unobtrusively and sends it to local computer or PDA via Wi-Fi. In Phase I, POC will conduct a feasibility study to ascertain all possible human signatures that indicate stress, conduct modeling and simulation of the sensing methods, develop detection and estimation algorithms, and build a proof-of-concept prototype. In Phase II, POC will develop a field-worthy TRL 4-5 prototype that will be validated against standards set by National Center for Credibility Assessment.
