Abstract:

This study is aimed at the broad goal of the DoD Secure Voice Consortium to develop hardware models of improved narrow-band voice coders. The study is focused on the pitch and voicing problem. The objective is to conceive and demonstrate the feasibility of two or more improved strategies to estimate and encode the excitation parameters of human speech. The decoded parameters will be used to excite a time-varying vocal tract filter in the synthesizer.
