Abstract:

Safe efficient operations on the flight line or on the deck of an aircraft carrier require effective communications between members of the crew and between members of the crew and the aircraft pilot. Maintainers working on the flight deck or flight line are often subject to extremely loud noise fields (110 to 140 dBA), which makes natural voice communications challenging or impossible. Missed communication and miscommunication are a constant risk, either of which could imperil operational tempo or crew safety. A new solution is needed to enable high-reliability communications between personnel on the flight deck and flight line. Creare proposes an ultrasonic communications system to enable voice and data communications for maintainers on the flight deck and flight line. In Phase I, we will develop the core technology and overall system architecture. In Phase II, we will design, fabricate, and test the system and deliver prototype units to the Navy.
