Abstract:

The objective of the research project was to determine the feasibility of using a Low Memory Requirement Voice Recognizer to activate gun turrent control. Such a system would enable a single individual to manually pilot the helicopter while activating gun functions by voice command. To develop an effective voice recognition system, major limitations of existing voice recognition technology needed to be overcome. The major limitations of current voice recognition systems are a they are normally capable of recognizing only one speaker and one mode of speaking, b recognition time is slow when working with sizeable vocabularies, c they require extensive hardware with resultant excessive weight and size limitations for aircraft applications, and d they are difficult to interface with, and access artificial intelligenceexpert software systems.
