Abstract
SECURE VOICE COMMUNICATIONS OVER NARROW (10 - 12.5 KHZ) CHANNELS IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT. SPEECH COMPRESSIION FOR USE OVER SUCH NARROW CHANNELS MUST OPERATE AT 9.6 KBPS.

IN THIS PROPOSALWE DISCUSS AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO SPEECH COMPRESSION AT 9.6 KBPS THAT PROMISES TO OVERCOME MANY OF THESE PROBLEMS, RESULTING IN A PRACTICAL AND EFFECTIVE SYSTEM.
