Detecting humans by their molecular signatures are part of a new Air Force project to develop "human-centered science and technology"
The effort, from the Air Force Research Laboratory's Human-Centered Intelligence, Surveillance, & Reconnaissance Division, has three major research areas:
■ Human Signature technologies that sense and exploit human bio-signatures at the molecular and anthropometric level.
■ Human Trust and Interaction technologies that improve human-to-human and human-to-machine interactions.
■ Human Analyst Augmentation technologies that enhance of performance of ISR analysts.
The research will support efforts to enable the Air Force to better identify, locate and track humans within the ISR environment, according to the announcement posted to FedBizOpps.
