Abstract
SPEECH RECOGNITION IN AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL (ATC) (NOISE, MULTIPLE VOICES) AND PSYCHOLOGICAL OR PHYSICAL STRESS (PEAK TRAFFIC PERIODS, COLDS), WHILE MEETING THE NEED OF ERROR-RESISTANT OPERATION. A SUCCESSFUL DESIGN THAT "CAPTURES" THE INFORMATION ALREADY COMMUNICATED VERBALLY, HOWEVER, WOULD SAVE TIME NOW SPENT RE-ENTERING SPOKEN DATA THROUGH THE KEYBOARD AND REDUCE THE NEED FOR A CONTROLLER TO LOOK AWAY FROMT HE SCREEN. BY USING AN INNOVATIVE, ECLECTRIC, LINGUISTIC APPROACH TO SPEECH RECOGNITION, RECOGNIZER WITH A LIMITED VOCABULARY AND HERURISTIC C CAPABILITIES COULD BE DEVELOPED FOR THIS APPLICATION. THE PROPOSED TECHNICAL APPROACH WOULD COMBINE SEVERAL STATE-OF- THE-ART SPEECH RECOGNITION TECHNIQUES, ADAPTED SPECIFICALLY FOR STRESSFUL, HIGH-NOISE ENVIRONMENTS, WITH PHONETIC, PHONEMIC, SYNTACTIC, AND SEMANTIC PREDICTION CAPABILITIES TO PRODUCE RELIABLE, REAL-TIME SPEECH RECOGNITION.
