PRELIMINARY DESIGN OF AN AIRCRAFT NOISE MEASUREMENT SYSTEM FOR CERTIFICATION AND RESEARCH

System requirements are presented for a noise measurement system capable of performing tests conforming to FAR Part 36 and for a research noise measurement system applicable to a broad range of objectives. The characteristics of subsystems for the functions of acoustical data collection, aircraft tracking, weather data collection, aircraft performance data collection and data processing are discussed. Alternative subsystems representative of a range of performance capabilities and costs are considered in terms of specific measurement objectives and other factors. Example system configurations for both certification and research applications are described. The study emphasizes conceptual design rather than detailed equipment/system specifications. (Author)
