Submission + - F-35 Fighter to use speech recognition 1

Gary writes: "The U.S. Air Force revealed that the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter, which will be out in 2008, will be the first U.S. fighter to respond to voice commands. The Air Force Research Laboratory's Human Effectiveness Directorate has been deliberating on the idea for some time, and has even tried out different systems from a variety of companies. The system hooks on to the plane's onboard computer. It will be used to give commands for both communication and navigation. The requested data will then come up in the pilot's helmet display."
