Abstract : A Wessex helicopter at RAE Bedford has been used to develop and evaluate a set of electronic cockpit displays and a comprehensive suite of avionics which were integrated to form an advanced display and flight management system for both military and civil applications. Two important features of the system were automatic speech recognition and synthetic speech output. Flight trials have been conducted to determine the ground rules and principles pertinent to the successful integration of these devices with other advanced avionics. The trial has shown that the combination of speech recognition and synthetic voice systems offers an element of redundancy and if correctly integrated into the cockpit will be capable of improving the man machine interface to a far greater degree than is achievable by hand or voice alone.
