Pitch And Vocavio Introduce New Communication Analytics Capability To Synthetic Training

[Linkoping, Sweden & Bristol, United Kingdom : 17 June 2020]

Vocavio Technologies has announced the availability of their vCONNECT plug-in for Pitch Talk, a real-time interface to Pitch Technologies’ simulated radio/intercom software product Pitch Talk.

Vocavio’s plug-in ingests Pitch Talk’s audio streams into their vCONNECT analytics platform, for near real-time analysis of team communication performances in synthetic training environments. The vCONNECT platform from Vocavio assesses communication & coordination performance in high workload, high stress environments, measuring non-verbal cues in speech dialog e.g. pitch, rhythm and tone of voice.

Pitch Talk is a communications framework to support distributed simulation, covering a wide range of applications from individual and crew training to theatre level command and control training. Pitch Talk enables high fidelity simulation-based training with highly realistic voice communications through simulated radios and intercoms.

Vocavio Technologies, VP Product, Conor McKenna, said, “Capturing quality audio is critical to generating insights from speech dialog, so developing the vCONNECT plug-in for Pitch Talk was an important step in providing a seamless solution to the synthetic training community. This unique combination blends audio realism in training with scientific analysis to generate insights not previously available.”

Bjorn Möller, Pitch’s President, added, “Vocavio’s connection with Pitch Talk combines a revolutionary and novel communication analysis technology with off-the-shelf simulated radio/intercom. I believe that many defense and also air traffic control customers could enhance both training and operations with Pitch Talk and vCONNECT.”

Vocavio enables simulation providers to assess teams that are training for high-stress high-workload environments. The performance data generated brings a new evidence-based approach to debriefing critical non-technical skills of communication, teamwork and decision making. Scientifically validated in trials with military and commercial pilots. Accessible alongside your existing communications infrastructure, via cloud or enterprise license.
