Abstract
Adaptive Technologies, Inc. (ATI) and Fortress Technologies have teamed to develop advances in flight deck data and voice communications for use by the Aviation Data Management and Control System (ADMACS) program. This unique challenge of providing operational, noise-free, speech driven data management in a flight deck environment, with wireless network integration to the existing ADMACS shipboard LAN, is expected to lead to new paradigms for aviation maintainers. The ATI and Fortress Technologies team that proposes this Phase II project is uniquely suited to address the inherent challenges of this SBIR topic based on their current portfolio of military-qualified flight deck communications products and wireless mesh network hardware systems, respectively. Based on proprietary digital noise canceling microphone technology that is used in two different flight-deck certified communications headsets, ATI will initiate the design and integration of speech-driven applications on mobile devices in order to provide highly accurate speech recognition in jet noise fields across a wide population of users. This system will be interfaced into the ADMACS LAN via Fortress Technologies"secure, FIPS-140 certified wireless hardware that satisfies DOD Directive 8100.2. This program is designed to target a successful demonstration of speech recognition and wireless data communication on the flight deck at the end of the Phase II contract.
