Abstract
EOIR Technologies proposes to develop the Standoff Counter Human Deception Detection Device FLIR As Guide (SCHD3-FLAG) as an innovative non-contact thermal imaging technology. This stand-off collection system will measure the psychophysiological signature of subjects undergoing questioning via pore activity in real-time. The SCHD3-FLAG standoff system will measure human psychophysiological stress and emotional signatures with fidelity comparable to the galvanic skin response (GSR) of contact sensors. The SCHD3-FLAG will build on the foundational work performed by EOIR Technologies in collaboration with the Army"s Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD), called the Remote Electrodermal Detection-FLIR As Guide (RED-FLAG) System. EOIR Technologies will leverage the research and development of the current NVESD RED-FLAG System to develop a handheld, ruggedized system capable of assisting the HUMINT collector to accurately determine truthfulness/creditability of subjects undergoing questioning, either overtly or covertly. This system will aid in the assessment of psychophysiological characteristics at standoff distances. In addition to pore reactions, the SCHD3-FLAG will use a multimodal approach by incorporating other modalities, such as breathing rate and micro-facial expressions, which can also be analyzed to increase the accuracy of the system.
