Technological advances have had profound effects on the conduct of military operations in both peacetime and in war. One advance that has had a great impact outside the military by reducing human intervention is Voice Recognition (VR) technology. This thesis will examine the implementation of a Voice Recognition System as a shipdriving device and as a means of decreasing the occurrence of mishaps while reducing the level of fatigue of watchstanders on the bridge. Chapter I will discuss the need for the United States Navy to investigate the implementation of a Voice Recognition System to help reduce the probability of mishaps occurring. Chapter II will explain voice recognition technology, how it works, and how the proposed system can be fielded aboard U.S. Navy ships. Chapter III will examine the opinions (on the implementation of a Voice Recognition System) of officers charged with the safe navigation of naval ships. Chapter IV will review the concerns of officers, and will justify the implementation by answering these concerns. The conclusion will iterate the advances in voice recognition, and why a Voice Recognition system should be implemented on the bridges of U.S. Navy ships.
