HARDWARE WILL BE CONSTRUCTED ON A MODULAR BASIS CONSISTING OF A SPEECH OUTPUT ADVISOR AND A LOW MEMORY REQUIREMENT (LMR) VOICE/UTTERANCE RECOGNIZER. THE LMR VOICE/UTTERANCERECOGNITION MODULE USES ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TO INCREASE ITS CAPABILITIES COMPARED TO CONVENTIONAL RECOGNITION DEVICES WHILE REDUCING MEMORY AND HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS. THE UNIT SHOULD RECOGNIZE INSTANTLY, A NORMAL ARMAMENT CONTROL VOCABULARY AS SPOKEN BY DIFFERENT PILOTS OR GUNNERS UNDER VARYING DEGREES OF STRESS. THE MODULE WILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO CLOSE RELAYS AND PERFORM OTHER REMOTE CONTROL FUNCTIONS. THE SPEECH ADVISOR WILL CONTAIN A NORMAL HELICOPTER ARMAMENT VOCABULARY.
