Abstract:

The research was designed to demonstrate a microcomputer system configuration for air control training. The objective of the research was to systemmatically integrate off-the-shelf components of microcomputer and microprocessor technology into a model prototype system for air control training. A subgoal was to examine voice inputoutput technology for its potential use in a microcomputer-based air control training system. The report describes the microcomputer system PCNTDS Personal ComputerNaval Tactical Data System used for Air Intercept Control AIC training. It describes the automated speech recognition and speech generation technology chosen to interface with the system. Data collected using several subjects who completed AIC lessons using the system are summarized. Advantages and disadvantages of using voice inputoutput technology for air control training are discussed, and recommendations for future research using the microcomputer testbed are provided. Keywords Voice synthesis, Air intercept control, Simulation, Instructional techniques.
