Abstract:

A control and display system is disclosed that is particularly suited for sonar applications. The control and display system utilizes voice recognition to be responsive to simple voice commands to generate and display the results of complex combinations of commands. The utilization of voice commands avoids such hindering display and control problems as hiding tactical data, while at the same time allows for more visual display to be provided for tactical data information. The utilization of voice commands streamlines the manner in which an operator handles tactical scenarios, reduces operator fatigue when handling tactical scenarios, and simplifies training the operator to handle tactical scenarios.
