Abstract
In order to actively reduce the ambient noise and retain vocal recording clarity of medical personnel in a military operations environment, MagiQ proposes a innovative multi-stage noise cancellation scheme and a passive memory transfer concept in Phase II for the SB082-015 Portable Medical Recorder. The recorder will record the information in the battlefield and detachable memory media can be used as the information carrier. A general purpose computer in the hospital (or on the transport vehicle, e.g. ambulance, helicopter, etc.) can be used as the advanced processing platform to execute all advanced tasks, such as noise cancellation, speech enhancement, user interface and infrastructure interface. This cost effective arrangement will provide not only a reliable information transfer scheme but also a flexible noise cancellation implementation platform. Our approach has the following features: 1. Simple and elegant information transferring scheme using industry standard data storage components; 2. Retention of vocal recording clarity by using advanced noise reduction techniques; 3. Compact physical size, less than the size of handheld cellular phone; 4. More than 24 hours recording duration; can be longer with batteries replacement; 5. Minimum mechanical moving parts to increase device reliability; 6. Interfaces with other data infrastructures (BMIS/AHLTA, etc).
