Abstract
Canadian Navy (RCN) platforms. Previous algorithms for layout optimization have not adequately addressed the acoustical environment and its effects on speech communication. This report aims to fill the gap in knowledge by 1) reviewing previous work on auditory communication onboard RCN platforms, 2) summarizing current standards for speech communication, and 3) summarizing the effects of the acoustical environment and room acoustics modeling. These literature review findings are combined with observations from a tour of the critical control spaces in a Halifax Class Frigate to identify short-term solutions (data collection and modeling) for improving the modeling of auditory communication in layout optimization. Finally, future experiments, human factors analyses, and modeling for optimizing communication performance are proposed.
