      Due to the complexity of real-time missions, an increasing number of participants, and the critical nature of test missions, providing a reliable, versatile voice communication network for mission support entities has become essential. A voice communication system has a direct impact on the effectiveness of every mission and the safety of mission personnel. Each participant must satisfy unique functional and operational communication requirements. This paper addresses the functional, operational, and ergonomic aspects associated with a voice communication system for the Central Control Facility (CCF) at the Air Force Development Test Center (AFDTC), Eglin AFB, Florida. The communication system was purchased from an Edwards AFB Digital Switch requirements contract.
