QTI PROJECT Portfolio
We specialize in projects that are conceptually challenging yet innovative. Our projects encompass areas such as imaging, laser physics, software design and employ the use of a variety of skills including mathematics and electrical engineering expertise. These projects are developed with a high level of technical skill and knowledge. Our mission is to employ the simplest yet elegant development techniques which can be formulated into products that are both reliable and easily replicated for various industries. We are currently focused on medical and technology industries.
We are particularly excited and inspired to be doing this kind of work, as we can foresee how the design and development of new, non-invasive technology will save lives in the field of cancer detection. Developing the right tools and technologies are keys to innovation in any industry. An example of one such tool is pictured in the slide below. It illustrates a mathematical model which is used to develop thermal imaging and analysis for medical applications (e.g., new systems for Cancer Detection) and for technology applications (e.g., to perform analysis of laser profiles).

ACADIA II Compact Standalone / Networked, Image-fused, Multi-Spectrum Sensor System for Target Acquisition, Tracking, and Fire Control
QTI, as sub-contractor to Stevens University, designed and developed a Multi-Spectral Camera and Imaging System for the Stevens Target Acquisition, Tracking, and Fire Control multi-phased project for Picatinny Arsenal.
QTI's collaborative efforts with Sarnoff Labs (i.e., by offering continuous technical design and integration consultations to Sarnoff) enabled Sarnoff to successfully integrate the QTI newly developed multi-spectral Camera system with Sarnoff's new Acadia II Processor.
At the conclusion of this multi-phased project, QTI had delivered a miniaturized single battery image-fused processing platform.
Laser Enhanced Imaging for Early Detection & Analysis of Breast Cancer
QTI recently developed research that introduces new laser enhanced thermal imaging techniques for early cancer detection and screening (e.g., breast cancer and prostate cancer as well as other types of cancer). What makes this early cancer screening technique unique is the ability to distinguish between benign, indolent, and malignant tumors through their distinctive laser-induced heat profile or thermal point spread function (PSF). Most significant is the ability to achieve cancer detection and analysis at very early stages of cancer.
Liquid-Crystal Polymer Camera
This is the first liquid crystal (LC) long wavelength (LW) conversion camera ever developed. Specifically, this is the first functioning camera of its kind ever developed. The new LC camera truly operates at room temperature (20C). It has the largest spectral range of any camera system ever conceived from UV-Vis-Near to IR-MIIR - LWIR - Terahertz in a single imaging system. New computer imaging algorithms and concepts would have to be developed because of the alien nature of the camera’s operation.
