A $25 million Air Force research project will explore better ways to exploit audio intelligence by understanding speech that is frequently garbled or has thick foreign accents. The Air Force Research Laboratory’s Information Directorate is soliciting white papers for better technologies.

Areas include discerning usable speech, reducing noise, identifying speakers, language and dialect identification, understanding accented speech, audio watermarking and automatic voice recognition.

“The main emphasis for this research are techniques and methods for use in a tactical (low signal-to-noise ratio, less than 5 seconds processing time, minimum training time) military environment,” noted the Air Force announcement.
