The article presents selected results of the analytical works, carried out in the Air Force Institute of Technology, in the field of possibilities to support the pilot’s work in the cabin of the modern multi-task aircraft or military helicopter with the use of the computer voice communication assistant, with automatic recognition of the pilot’s voice and speech, which operates in conditions of the lack of time. There are presented the voice systems warning the pilot of the occurrence of an emergency state, as the so-called voice guides, P-591-04 type, used in the MiG-29 multi-purpose aircraft and RI-65 type, used in the Mi-17 and Mi-24 helicopters. As an example of implementation of the concept of a new system supporting the pilot’s work, there was selected the voice communication system, constructed in the Air Force Institute of Technology for the W-3PL multi-purpose helicopter with the ZSA integrated avionics system. The main research problems related to the construction of integrated avionics systems, verbally supporting the pilot’s work, were discussed, and the specialized tools and research stations used in the Air Force Institute of Technology for the phonoscopic speech and voice studies, were presented. Furthermore, an example of the functional diagram and the system architecture of the pilot’s work verbal supporting for a selected emergency situation on the aircraft board were demonstrated, as well as the expected range of that system’s applications.
