Multi-modal Cloud Based System for Detecting Early Signs of Driver Cognitive Decline and/or High Risk Driving Behavior
Physical Sciences Inc (PSI), has been awarded a research program from the National Institutes of Health /National Institute of Aging (NIH /NIA) to develop a novel technology that will non-intrusively monitor driver cognitive decline and/or high-risk driving behavior that is especially suited for seniors (aged over 65).
Environmentally Adaptive Free-Space Optical Communication
Physical Sciences Inc has been awarded a research contract from the US Army to develop an adaptive free-space optical communication system, capable of maintaining low bit error rate (~ 10-9) over long ranges (> 20 km) by correcting for atmospheric and other environmental factors while operating at eye-safe power levels.
Multispectral cellular-level retinal imaging for early detection of Alzheimer's disease
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), has been awarded a research program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to develop a novel technique to identify amyloid β-protein (Aβ) deposits in the retina as a biomarker for Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
PSI will develop an optical imaging technique capable of non-invasively identifying specific chemical compounds in vivo in the retina with cellular-level resolution and without the use of contrast agents. PSI will validate the ability of this technique to identify early indications of AD.
