Measuring the Eyes for Military Applications
In recent years, Passive Eye Monitoring technology has been used increasingly to understand key aspects of military operations. Advances in hardware design and implementation together with increased sophistication in software algorithms have led to robust systems that can be used in operational and near-operational settings as well as in conventional laboratory studies. Researchers from diverse fields such as cognitive science, cognitive psychology, engineering, and psychophysiology have come together to build research programs whose goal is to better understand human perception, attention, and mental effort in the context of performing real jobs. The U.S. Department of Defense has been a major source of support for these efforts. The Office of Naval Research (ONR), the Air Force Office of Scientific Research(AFOSR), the Army Research Institute (ARI), and the Defense Advanced Research Program Agency (DARPA) have all made important contributions in this area.
