Charles River Analytics, developer of intelligent systems solutions, will discuss development of a functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) device at the International Neuroergonomics Conference, which takes place from June 27-29, 2018, in Philadelphia, PA. Dr. Bethany Bracken, Senior Scientist, will discuss the development and refinement of a fNIRS device. Topics include:
- Design and refinement of our custom fNIRS device built to be more portable, rugged, and cost-effective than similar sensors on the market
- Validation of this sensor versus another fNIRS sensor
- Validation of this sensor and our ability to assess cognitive workload with it using a gold-standard laboratory task and a more realistic multi-task battery
This work is based on part of our Army-funded Monitor, Extract, and Decode Indicators of Cognitive Workload (MEDIC) and our NASA-funded system for Cognitive Assessment and Prediction to Promote Individualized Capability Augmentation and Reduce Decrement (CAPT PICARD) work. Charles River and our partner, PLUX, recently announced the release of fNIRS Pioneer™, a device that measures brain blood oxygenation and cardiac information.

Charles River Analytics conducts leading-edge AI, robotics, and human-machine interface R&D and leverages that R&D to create custom solutions for your organization.
At Charles River Analytics, we come to work every day because we want to develop technology for the hardest human-machine teaming problems that impact critical operations and decision-making. In 1983, we began focusing on research that leads to results, initially working for the US government. We became an employee-owned company in 2012, setting the stage for the next generation of innovation, service, and growth. Today, we have nearly 200 employees who work on R&D and commercial programs that make a difference for a “who’s who” of government and industry.
We have a stellar track record developing successful solutions for Government and commercial clients across a diverse collection of markets—defense, intelligence, medical technology, training, transportation, space, and cyber security. Our success is based on our expertise with advanced algorithms, machine learning, autonomous systems, advanced human-system interfaces, and agile software and hardware engineering. Focused research can make a positive difference, and that is our goal on each project we undertake. Our customer-centric focus guides us towards problems that matter, while our passion for science and engineering drives us to find impactful, actionable solutions.
