Noise level measurements were made on several items of ground support equipment at an Atlas complex and Titan I complex. Overall from 18.7 to 9600 cps and octave-band 9 octaves within the overall range sound pressure levels measured in the near vicinity of the equipment are presented. One-third octave-band sound pressure levels are also given for certain equipment which generates narrow-band sound levels. Exposure time limitations and speech interference levels for individuals working in the vicinity of the equipment are discussed. Recommendations are made for measures to be taken to insure against hearing loss and to improve the areas for speech effectiveness. Author
