Abstract:

THIS PROJECT IS BASED ON THE BELIEF THAT AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLTRAINING IS INDEED A TASK THAT COULD BENEFIT GREATLY FROM THE ADDITION OF SPEECH TECHNOLOGY. THIS PROPOSAL IS ALSO BASED ON THE BELIEF THAT THIS APPLICATION REQUIRES VERY CAREFUL INTEGRATION BEING AWARE OF THE SPECIFIC LIMITATIONS AND CAPABILITIES OF THE AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGIES. WE OFFER BOTH EXTENSIVE RESEARCH EXPERIENCE WITH AIR TRAFFICCONTROL AND WITH SPEECH SYSTEMS. OUR FIRST OBJECTIVE IS TO IDENTIFY AND INSTALL THE ITT SPEECH DEVICE (CONTINUOUS SPEECH RECOGNIZER) AND IDENTIFY THE VOCABULARY AND SYNTAX FOR THE TASK AT HAND. OUR SECOND OBJECTIVE IS TO COMPILE ACTUAL CONTROLLER-PILOT DIALOGS AND INCORPORATE THESE INTO OUR SYSTEM. OUR FINAL OBJECTIVE IS TO DEMONSTRATE AND DELIVER A FEASIBILITY MODEL TO THE FAA TECHNICAL CENTER. WE INTEND TOWORK CLOSELY WITH LOGAN AIRPORT CONTROLLERS WITH WHOM WE ARECURRENTLY WORKING ON OUR ATC SIMULATION. IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT THIS PHASE I PROJECT WILL SHOW FEASIBILITY AND THAT PHASE II WILL RESULT IN WORKING PROTOTYPE ATC SPEECH SYSTEMSINSTALLED AT SEVERAL LOCATIONS.
