Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSED EFFORT IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING VOICE COMMANDS FOR THE CONTROL OF GUN TURRETS. THE APPLICATION OF AUTOMATIC SPEECH RECOGNITION TECHNOLOGY HAS GREAT POTENTIAL FOR EXPANDING CREW CAPABILITIES AND REDUCING CONFUSION IN THE DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENT OF THE ATTACK HELICOPTER COCKPIT. THE TASKS WHICH WILL BE REQUIRED TO DETERMINE VOICE CONTROL FEASIBILITY INCLUDE ANALYSIS OF THE HELICOPTER ACOUSTIC ENVIRONMENT, SELECTION OF APPROPRIATE CONTROL VOCABULARY AND SPEECH SYSTEM SPECIFICATION. IF VOICE CONTROL PROVES TO BE FEASIBLE, IT IS EXPECTED TO SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE HELICOPTER CREW PERFORMANCE.
