Feedback sessions with Prague-controllers
  December 2017 or January 2018 in Prague (ANS CR)

During the meeting the controllers will be integrated into the feedback process. We present to them their own speech recordings together with the corresponding radar data. The controller will listen to the communication and will evaluate ABSR performance. In parallel the speech recordings will also be manually transcribed, so that objective recognition accuracy will be available.


Feedback sessions with Vienna-controllers
