Abstract : Surveys of airframe manufacturers and Air Force tactical aircraft pilots regarding the use of voice messages in current and future tactical aircraft are reported. The results of these surveys are used to recommend voice message ensembles for the primary Air Force tactical aircraft: the F-4, F-15, and F-16. The basic 38-item vocabulary necessary to generate those messages (except threat-warning messages) is presented and the usage of each vocabulary item is summarized by voice message function and by aircraft. An additional 35- item vocabulary for use in threat-warning messages is also presented. Conclusions and recommendations for further research are discussed.
