Abstract : Voice command holds potential for off-loading many manual switching tasks from the pilot. The report surveys the state-of-the-art in voice command, discusses cockpit applications, and identifies primary manufacturers/government agencies doing research. Such factors as the functional specifications of an airborne voice command system and concern for the pilot in relation to voice command are stressed. An analysis of the overall situation leads to the conclusion that voice command is on the threshold of application into cockpits, given that certain restrictions are acceptable. (Author)
