Conducting safe flight operations from aircraft carriers requires accurate and timely dissemination of aircraft status information from the Carrier Air Traffic Control Center (CATCC). Presently, the information is manually displayed on status boards throughout the ship by a network of sailors communicating via sound-powered microphones. A prototype, connected, speech-based system, developed by the Naval Ocean Systems Command (NOSC), was evaluated. Specific evaluation criteria were the hardware, software, and the man-machine interface. The use of connected speech as an input modality across varying noise and syntactic conditions was experimentally tested. The result of this research was the proposal of guidelines for designing connected speech syntaxes and specific recommendations for future prototype development efforts.
