The purpose of this study was to select and evaluate the ten most comprehensive aircraft noise measurement systems in the Free World. Five U.S. and five European systems were visited and studied. These were installed by various suppliers in the period 1970-1975. For each system, this report presents a description of remote monitor station equipment, central station equipment, data processing and output, staffing and costs for installation and operation, and associated noise abatement program. There is a wide diversity in utilization of systems having the same basic hardware. Also presented are comparative evaluations of the systems and associated equipment and discussions of the application of monitoring systems to airport noise abatement.
