Supersluh for pilots: The new system creates 3D-sound headphones flyer

Supersluh for pilots: The new system creates 3D-sound headphones flyerThe US aerospace company Raytheon has developed a new 3D Audio system for military pilots, which will warn them about the type of threat and its exact location. The system creates a directional sound that appears in the place where the danger is coming from.


One of the problems of military pilots is that the sound in the headphones does not have a pronounced orientation. If the pilot heard several radio messages from different sources, sound merges and distorted.

3D Audio helps pilots distinguish between multiple radio channels at the same time. This is similar to how a person communicates with several people at a party. Since the call participants are at different locations, it is easier to understand who is talking about, even if the voices sound simultaneously.

The Raytheon system understands when the pilot turns his head and the sound in the headphones “moves” according to his movement. In addition, the pilot can configure the system so that the voice sounded a certain person in a certain place. For example, the voice of the co-pilot sounded on the right side, the voice of the passenger - from behind, and the air traffic controller - in front.

Another important function of the system - it audiopreduprezhdenie about external dangers. In fact, the pilot will hear what is happening in kilometers behind the aircraft, from which side, and therefore will be able to react faster, for example, to the attack of the enemy.

Modern technologies of warning pilots of danger require that they first look at the picture on the display before taking further action. With 3D Audio, in addition to this, pilots will receive a geospatial designation of threats, which will help them quickly orient and respond.

According to Mikhail Demidov, a venture capital fund partner T34Moscow, 3D Audio can function only as a working prototype, because the pilot cannot fully concentrate only on hearing.

"Hearing as one of the senses was practically not covered by any such invention. However, I think that this technology is not quite know-how, but just a refinement of the dynamics. When the pilot is in the sky and listens to what is being said to him from the ground, it is difficult to make so that there is no cacophony, which is likely to be observed when using 3D sound. Therefore, in my opinion, such a system is overkill, "added Mr. Demidov.

"This system can help military pilots reduce response time, for example, when there is an emergency message about an impending threat from a sound source. But the main difficulty lies in the precise implementation of the system, because in addition to constantly monitoring the position of the pilot’s head and the correct operation of the sound speakers, you must also reliably determine the position of the real source of sound / threat, because otherwise the system can simply disorient the pilot ", - says the employee of the laboratory of spectroscopy nanomaterial at the Institute of General Physics. A.M. Prokhorov RAN Alexander Chernov.

      The overload of the pilot's visual receptors is compensated by a huge amount of information, which must not only be adequately perceived in real time, but also have time to select in accordance with the task being performed, i.e. manage its display. And this is very, very difficult. So the idea of ​​relieving the pilot's vision at the expense of hearing is very timely. Time will tell how successful the implementation of this idea will be. By the way, at one time they giggled a lot over the idea of ​​the same Americans to place elements of aiming and weapon control on the pilot's helmet. Then they stopped giggling and began to urgently implement it. So the one who managed to shoot down first laughs. And then every additional bit of information "pressing on the eye" may be superfluous.

      If you only knew the visibility problems in the MiG-31. Around the embrasures ... I remember how a friend flew for the first time in the 7th "zeshnik" (before that in the 5th he flew), then complained that his head was fitting to the parameters of the cockpit, by hard blows against the lantern, I was used to moving closer to embrasure ", without contact of the helmet on the lantern.

        Unfortunately, in terms of avionics, we are always in the back, information content is very important, especially in battle. And here is how they "lose" on the Su-30 exercises, yes, we need to learn! As a result, we received additional money for the F-22, and money for modernization. And we don't have a resource, we don't have staff, that's the whole answer. Who will fly tomorrow and on what?

    Interesting idea. Pilots should have a good reaction, such a system will allow a quicker response, this is understandable. But here it was several times in the shooter - I put on the headphones on the contrary, and so the disorientation was very strong, it seems that the attack is shown on the screen on one side, but it is weakly expressed, and the sound is sharp, loud .. you react to it. Could it be that when weakening the sound from one of the speakers (and this happens), you will begin to hear everything with distortion in the angle of rotation. When the target is on the left, hear it from behind, etc. At least you need to let the pilots turn it off, going to 2d :)

    In the early sixties, I came across the magazine "Military Foreigner". In the article, the Am-sky general complained that the Russian MIG-15s, with practically no electronics, successfully shoot down am-e fighters, in which one faulty unit with tens of kilometers of wires connects to whole units and puts them out of action. Can the stereo headset be quietly connected to the engine?

            Yes, yes ... we know about your stealth. To begin with, you need this pregnant cow to start flying further than 200 km from the bases and above 6 km. And did not strangle the pilots. And the details of the fuselage did not crack. And the waters are not afraid. And lightning (read static electricity).

    ... I remember when the issue of piloting the information was very acute. It was believed that only the visual-auditory channels of perception do not allow him to timely inform about what is happening around. Then someone suggested such an exotic channel - a specially formed electrode field superimposed on the stomach :)
    It was supposed that in this way it would be possible to open a new channel of touch ...
    Nevertheless, the idea was safely forgotten ...

    What will happen to this 3d sound, I don’t know, m. will also be safely forgotten ...

      And rightly so, they were imposing the wrong place. The pilot, apparently, began to seem that he was hungry. And instead of thinking about flying, thoughts came about a hamburger laughing .

      This is the secret know-how of Americans! Their stealth plane does not fly, it creeps up to production by crawling using the terrain !! And if he does not find the folds of the terrain, he pretends to be a log. This is where stealth is needed. laughing

    Well, even if the pilots receive comprehensive information about the approaching rocket vector, the 4.5g overload restrictions for the fu-35 make it impossible for the pilot to carry out an energetic anti-ballistic maneuver.

      The overload restriction is temporary, with each next test batch the restrictions will be removed, somewhere even the plate was laid out.
      And it’s practically impossible to avoid modern missiles for the F-35, or even for the Su-35 ...
