Abstract:

Tests were conducted at the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center utilizing two aircraft, a C-131 and a Grumman Gulfstream, to investigate several cockpit voice recording techniques for the design and development of a transport aircraft voice recorder system. Binaural recording, noise cancellation inserted prior to recording, and filter techniques such as combined T-notch and band-pass, voice intelligibility equipment singularly, voice intelligibility equipment combined with the T-notch filter, and voice intelligibility equipment combined with the band-pass filter were investigated. The voice intelligibility equipment, employed in a single filter, demonstrated the most satisfactory filtering technique for recording cockpit voice. Author
