A NEW ERA IN VOICE STRESS DETECTION
PCAT is for quick screening purposes. Intended for use in the field to rapidly screen security & military personnel OR rapid screening of persons at border controls and airports. Should the person fail the PCAT pre-screen, it is a suggested that a formal lie-detection test be done.
It is a serious management tool devised for Security, Military, Insurance, Banking, Warehousing, Logistics, Transportation etc.
CAT was designed in response to a requirement for a reliable, high volume /rapid honesty screening system that could be administered in a non-formal setting, which is ‘de rigueur’ for Polygraph or comprehensive Voice Stress Detection systems.
PCAT utilises the same AI neural network database as Millennium. However, it accesses the database via cloud computing technology. Stress Values and final scores are provided within milliseconds, a tribute to the many months of engineering that produced the first release of PCAT.
PCAT has two components: A Dashboard Admin which is installed onto any MS Windows pc and a handheld testing device (being the Operators Android smartphone).
Two Question Constructs are available; the IZCT for Issue Tests and the MGQT for mixed issues tests. These are the two most widely used question constructs/protocols used by Lie-Detection Examiners worldwide.
The IZCT has reliability of 99,4%. The 82% rating reliability for MGQT has been increased to 88-90% when used with our Comparison Question structure and question order.
How to run an
AVSAPRO PCAT TEST
Tests are performed by an operator / examiner on an Android device.
A choice of two question constructs from validated polygraph methodology.
- MGQT (Mixed General Questions Test) used for Pre-Employment Screening and Periodic Honesty Screening tests.
- IZCT (Integrated Zone Of Comparison Test) used to eliminate innocent persons from a group of suspects.
Operator poses dichotomous or closed questions, requiring only Yes/No answers.
The designated administrator can construct question templates in the Dashboard.
Each test consumes no more than five minutes with a reliability of > 95% , with a truth bias.
Minimum Operating requirements
Android. iOS in development
Computer installed with MS Windows
Microphone / Headset compatible with preferred Android Device
Zoom if required
Operators do not require specialised training. PCAT is provided with an easy to follow User Manual. However, use of the app is extremely easy and has been specifically simplified to do away with specialised training.
