Veritas Scientific Corporation delivers products and services to help clients verify the truth and detect deception. Truth verification and deception detection are vital for clients who protect the public in areas such as transportation security, national security, and public safety. It is also an critical factor anywhere else where basing decisions on the truth is important.
Veritas Scientific’s truth verification and deception detection products, TruthWave™, measure and analyze specific brainwave responses to determine BrainTruth™. Neuroscientists have shown that these brainwave responses are an autonomic brain response. The brainwave responses utilized are highly accurate, cross-cultural, and are the basis for a repeatable method for determining truth or deception. By using the appropriate analytical techniques, TruthWave™ can use the brainwave response to a question to determine truth or deception. With these techniques, TruthWave™ has already achieved over 80% accuracy. By combining the use of these brainwave responses with other indicators like Facial Action Coding System and galvanic skin response, TruthWave™ can achieve even higher accuracy levels.
TruthWave™ has many potential applications. One important application is screening airline passengers. Screening with TruthWave™ is a highly accurate, quick, non-invasive test to determine whether people exhibit malicious intent, or just want to get on their planes and travel safely to their destinations. TruthWave™ allows for a quick method for determining whether the vast majority of the flying public should continue on their way with little delay, hassle or invasive searches. It can also identify the miniscule number of people who should be further examined or detained. TruthWave™ can also be used in other high or lower volume screening locations such as federal buildings, court houses, and other locations requiring heightened security. In addition to screening people at checkpoints, TruthWave’s™ ability to screen for intent can be used as a tool for certifying individuals for trusted credentials. These trusted credentials can be building passes or trusted passenger identification passes.
TruthWave™ is a new approach to screening in that it checks people for malicious or benign intent. It is not simply a search for weapons, explosives or other dangerous equipment. By examining intent, screeners can focus on those people who pose actual threats, while efficiently processing those who do not pose a danger.
 Autonomic responses are essentially automatic nervous system responses and provide virtually no opportunity for conscious intervention by deceptive thoughts. Examples of autonomic responses are pupil dilation in response to changing lighting conditions or changes to breathing or blood pressure in response to activity.
