AbstractAdaptive 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, voice-enabled 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 I 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 secure wireless 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 of voice-enabled mobile devices that provide highly accurate voice recognition in jet noise fields and provide interface to the ADMACS LAN via Fortress Technologies’ secure, FIPS 140-2 certified wireless hardware that satisfies DOD Directive 8100.2. This program is designed to successfully transition to Phase II demonstrations in a representative or actual flight deck environment.
