The Pulsar Informatics Inc. Mission
Pulsar Informatics is developing state-of-the-art technologies to help individuals achieve peak performance in mission-critical operations. We are a small team dedicated to excellence and innovation, working on products for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), US Navy, and Department of Transportation. We have a software development team developing enterprise applications, and an R&D team developing advanced computational algorithms in partnership with leading universities
We are experts in deploying precision neurobehavioral performance testing systems using the Psychomotor Vigilance Task (PVT). The PVT is a uniquely designed test that measures the brain’s reaction time to visual stimuli during vigilant attention. The PVT is practical for repeated tests because it is brief and free of learning effects and aptitude differences that contaminate virtually all other cognitive measures. It has become a validated scientific benchmark of alertness and vigilant attention with over 146 peer-reviewed scientific referenced publications on the PVT.
Pulsar has developed advanced algorithms for forecasting neurobehavioral performance and fatigue risk for both individuals and workforces. A wide variety of factors affect fatigue risk, from sleep history to individual vulnerability to sleep loss. We have developed technology for NASA and the DoD that allows us to integrate multiple fatigue-factors and provide individually-tailored forecasts. These patent-pending tool
Life at Pulsar Informatics Inc.
Pulsar Informatics provides a performance driven environment while maintaining an exceptionally high degree of flexibility and a casual feel.
Team members are provided with the tools they need to be effective without question and possess the latitude to shape their work environment as they see fit. We’ve recently moved into a brand new space in Philadelphia and are in the process of establishing offices in Seattle. Being a small team any new additions will have the opportunity to make their mark quickly and help build the software development side of the company.
