Abstract : This report is a users manual for the BASEOPS 3.00 program developed by AAMRL/BBE. It describes the installation, use and limitations of this program. BASEOPS is the menu driven computerized airbase operations input program used in doing airbase noise assessments under the USAF Air Installation Compatible Use Zone (AICUZ) program. BASEOPS will create a file that can be directly interfaced to the NOISEMAP 6.0 program, used to calculate the total noise exposure from these input operations. BASEOPS contains default performance profiles (takeoff and landing) for Military Transient and Civil aircraft. The program also allows the user to create a NOISEMAP input file for any subset of the input data through a Global Editing Menu. This can be used for quickly creating multiple noise analyses for different operational input scenarios. Keywords: Acoustics; Aircraft noise; Engine noise; Community noise exposure; Environmental impact.
