Abstract:

U.S. Army Human Engineering Laboratory HEL Standard S-1-63C September 1972 was the first design standard for noise in which all previous conflicts between U.S. Army medical guidelines and materiel design criteria were resolved. Its lineal descendent, MIL-STD-1474MI March 1973, was the first design standard for noise in which all Army review activities concurred. This report treats the historical background of Army noise standards, the bases for the noise-limit provisions of MIL-STD-1474MI, and considerations underlying the specified noise measurement procedures. Appendixes credit the many personnel involved, and an extensive list of references is provided.
