Research project: Detecting threats in real-world environments

Currently Active: 
Yes

We have been engaged in a series of ongoing projects examining threat detection in real-world environments.

Project Overview

Though the full details of these projects can not be disclosed due to their security-sensitive nature, we have conducted a number of experiments utilising various forms of eye-tracking (e.g., perambulatory eye-tracker as well as the Eyelink 1000) to examine the eye movement behaviour and underlying decision processes involved in the detection of threats in real-world environments. Based upon the results that we have obtained, we have made a number of suggestions for modifying current practices and methods to improve threat detection performance in these environments.

Funding: QinetiQ, Counter-Terrorism Centre, DSTL.
