Orsay - March 03, 2019

The MEVAC project

In the context of the MEVAC project, Vocapia in partnership with LIMSI, will study solutions to monitor vocal exchanges in the cockpit of fighter planes. The goal is to develop automatic monitoring that can be used both under operational conditions as well as on simulators in order to detect critical situations during missions and for post-mission debriefing. Speech recognition systems for in-flight use currently target the recognition of a limited number of spoken commands. The ambition of the MEVAC project is to process all cockpit communications, be it between the pilot and co-pilot or with ground control, taking into account the specific constraints and conditions of fighter planes. Flighter plane cockpit conversations are very challenging for automatic systems accumulating the challenges posed by different variations simultaneously, including: noisy communication channels, distortions, voice affected by stress, speech spoken with different accents, including non-native, multiple languages. The communications are also quite difficult for untrained humans to understand. Advanced machine learning techniques will be explored, building upon existing methods and maintaining a close interaction with users in order to propose solutions that address their real needs.

About Vocapia Research

Vocapia Research is a French R&D company and software publisher with over 20 years of experience in providing leading edge speech technologies for many languages, including most major European languages as well as Arabic, Mandarin, and Russian. The Vocapia Research VoxSigma® software suite uses advanced language technologies such as language identification, speech recognition, and speaker identification to transform raw audio and audiovisual data into structured and searchable XML documents. This technology relies on decades of research at LISN, with which there is a privileged partnership. Joint systems developed with LISN have achieved top ranks in national and international challenges on speech-to-text transcription. Located at the heart of the science innovation cluster of Paris Saclay, France, Vocapia Research is a leader in developing and adapting AI-based solutions for both civil and defence applications. These applications include audio and audiovisual data mining (broadcast and web data, telephone speech), production of subtitles, OSINT and COMINT, and the analysis of aeronautical communications (air traffic control, voice command).
