EyeValidate® based in Melbourne Australia is the premium service partner and reseller to Converus® based in Utah, USA. EyeValidate® is headed by Australian polygraph examiner Steve van Aperen who has consulted his services to police departments, government agencies and intelligence agencies throughout Australia for the past 25 years. He is a former police detective of 14 years service having conducted polygraph testing for 81 homicide cases and 2 serial killer investigations. He is a certified polygraph and EyeDetect examiner and trainer. As a former Victorian police officer he trained with the FBI, US Secret Service and LAPD. EyeValidate® commenced in April, 2020 to provide government agencies and investigators the ability to directly conduct their own lie detector tests, credibility assessment and verification services. Recognising the need for, and the importance of, training and standardisation for accuracy he turned to EyeDetect which measures ocular motor reactivity. Amongst higher accuracy rates, objective and non-biased scoring together with more sophisticated data collection he partnered with Converus® and created EyeValidate®.

EyeDetect® is the world’s first non-intrusive lie detection technology that accurately detects deception in 15-30 minutes by analysing eye behaviour. It can be used for security and intelligence screening or investigations.
Credibility assessment (also known as lie detection).
The person being tested sits in front of an EyeDetect Station, which is a computer with an eye-tracking camera mounted beneath the monitor. The eye tracker is calibrated to monitor involuntary eye behaviour.
The person answers a series of true/false questions for 15-30 minutes.
The question responses, along with pupil changes and other eye behaviour, are measured and stored on a secure, encrypted device.
At the conclusion of the test, the eye measurements and test responses are uploaded to a secure cloud server and analysed by proprietary algorithms.
A detailed report is generated within 5 minutes, and a Credibility Index Score indicates whether the person is credible or deceptive to the questions asked.
