Abstract : Following an explanation and discussion of the importance of voice communications for military operations, including the environmental and propagation effects and ECM, the Lectures will outline: speech coding which is mainly concerned with man-to-man voice communication; speech synthesis which deals with machine-to-man communication; and speech recognition which is related to man-to-machine communication. All these are techniques which involve speech compression or speech coding at low-bit rates and are needed for transmitting speech messages with a high level of security and reliability over low data-rate channels and for other applications such as memory-efficient systems for voice storage and response. The themes above will be underpinned by a lecture on the nature of the speech signal (production, recognition, and perception) and complemented by other lectures on quality assessment of speech systems and standards which are crucial for the satisfactory deployment of speech systems. This Lecture Series, sponsored by the Avionics Panel of AGARD, has been implemented by the Consultant and Exchange Programme. Keywords: Voice communication; Military communication; Speech analysis; Human factor engineering; Speech recognition; NATO; AGARD; Man machine systems; Compandor transmission.
