Abstract
THE U.S. ARMY HAS A REQUIREMENT FOR A UNIX SHELL WHICH WOULD ALLOW A USER TO VERBALLY COMMUNICATE WITH A VARIETY OF COMMAND AND CONTROL APPLICATIONS. SUCH A SYSTEM WOULD, WITH MINIMAL EFFORT, REPLACE CONVENTIONAL I/O DEVICES. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP A UNIX/AUTOMATED SPEECH RECOGNITION (ASR) SHELL THAT MECHANIZES A GENERIC C2 MAN-MACHINE INTERFACE (MMI) VIA A LIMITED SET OF PRIMITIVES, AND DEMONSTRATE THE UTILITY OF THE SHELL BY IMPLEMENTING A TYPICAL C2 MMI VIA A COMBINATION OF THESE PRIMITIVES. THE UNIX SHELL WILL BE BASED ON PRIMITIVES THAT WOULD BE SUITED TO ANY C2 APPLICATION. THE OVERALL APPROACH WILL BE DIRECTED TOWARD A SYSTEM THAT IS BOTH FLEXIBLE AND ADAPTABLE TO NEW C2 APPLICATIONS.
