Multimodal Aircrew State Assessment and Augmentation using Combined Near Infrared Spectroscopy, Electroencephalography, and transcranial Direct Current Stimulation
The project will be conducted in close collaboration with North Carolina State University (NCSU).
NIRSense is an early stage R&D company working to design somatic and cerebral oximetry devices using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). This SBIR project supports the development of a deployable prototype that can monitor cognitive states using both NIRS and electroencephalography (EEG). The project's objectives are to understand the unique requirements for a combined NIRS+EEG forehead-worn system suitable for use in military tactical jets. The project is conducted in close collaboration with NC State.
The grant—running from July 20, 2022 to January 19, 2024—is for a total of $100,000.

NIRSense is an early stage R&D company designing somatic and cerebral oximetry devices using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). The proposed SBIR project directly supports research on this platform to ideate on a deployable prototype for use toward cognitive state monitoring using combined NIRS and electroencephalography (EEG). The specific objectives of this proposal are to understand the unique requirements for combined NIRS+EEG in a forehead worn system suitable for use in military tactical jets.
