Olea Announces Jet Aircraft Cockpit Pilot Monitoring System

OleaSenseTM Development Platform for performance-enhancing sensor systems for the cockpit

RENO, Nev., Jan. 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Olea Sensor Networks, a leader in intelligent sensors and analytic software for sensor network- based systems, is offering the OSN Pilot Health Monitoring Development Platform based on Olea’s next-gen version of OleaSense, a technology system for contactless and remote vital sign monitoring.

This platform enables new kinds of cockpit sensor systems that can monitor and alert pilots to problems with their abilities to function and behave normally during flight in high-performance aircraft. Researchers are in need for new integrated sensor systems that can monitor air-quality; pilot’s vital signs and breathing patterns; cockpit conditions like cabin pressure, temperature, and acceleration.

NASA’s Engineering and Safety Center and NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center in California has been researching pilot breathing patterns in which sensor systems measure numerous physiological breathing parameters for continuous in-flight measurements. NASA has been able to link breathing dynamics to high-altitude flights, aerobatic flights and any other fighter flight maneuver. Such advanced life-support system frameworks contribute to the explanation of physiological episodes in flight, including hypoxia and hypocapnia, and lead to improvements in oxygen delivery systems, while increasing the understanding of how breathing impacts human performance.

The OleaSense advanced software development platforms process real-time data using Olea’s AI signal processing and peak detection algorithms, extracting vital sign statistics such as cardiac, respiration and heart-rate variability or alternatively the presence or absence of life. These IoT platforms offer a suite of components featuring:

  • Remote data collection from connected devices
  • Independent and secure connectivity between devices
  • Device/sensor analytics
  • Integration with 3rd party systems

Using Olea’s intelligent sensor analytics, the collected data may be transmitted to the cloud for access by professional medical personnel for interpretation and diagnosis. No external wires and no contact with the body is required. The Olea monitoring device weighs about 1 ounce and is about the size of a business card. It may be slipped into a shirt pocket or worn on a lanyard, or embedded in a chair or mattress. It has been clinically tested and provides medical grade accuracy of resting vital signs. It also features the ability to develop an additional feature which provides an individual’s HeartSignatureTM, which can identify the patient based upon their unique vital sign patterns.

The OSN Pilot Health Monitoring Development PlatformTM is part of Olea’s impressive portfolio of IoT intellectual property and was specifically developed as a vertically integrated solution in such a way that allows an innovative manufacturer to mitigate development cost, increase manufacturing efficiency and accelerate time to market.

“As part of Olea’s intellectual property portfolio offered for licensing to Aerospace companies and manufacturers, the OSN Pilot Health Monitoring Development PlatformTM technology, provides a mutual business advantage,” explained Frank Morese CEO/CTO of Olea, “which helps them to continue to compete globally and allows them to accelerate their innovations. From start-up to large corporations, companies can benefit from development times being reduced from a typical 36 months to only about 6 months, thanks to our manufacturing-ready approach to design.”

Olea offers its IP under a wide variety of licensing models. For each innovation, a customer is able to select the type of licensing that fits their current business plan.

About Olea’s Intelligent Sensors and Analytic Software

In 2013, Olea launched its flagship product the OS-3001 Intelligent Multi-Sensor Platform, for non-clinical R&D use, as a handheld/wearable, wireless, intelligent, multi-sensor data acquisition platform. It serves as a sensor hub with various on-board intelligent sensors. Since then, Olea has produced the OS-3005, OS-3008 and the 24Ghz OS-3010, feature-rich platforms for vital sign sensing, the OleaVisionTM life presence detector and Olea HeartSignatureTM biometric technology. All of Olea’s technologies are designed for use with OleaSenseTM sensor-analytics software, and, optionally, its cloud-based service solutions using Olea’s IoT Intelligent Partitioning Architecture.
