Abstract:

Environmental noise emissions of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle BFV main gun were measured in order to develop acoustic directivity patterns. Data were also gathered on the vehicle noise for future vehicle noise prediction. The tests were made at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD, on the M3 Cavalry Fighting Vehicle, CPT406, and the following gun and ammunitions 25 mm, M242 Main BFV weapon 25 mm. M791 APDS-T Armor Piercing Discarding Sabot-Traced 25 mm, M792 HEI-T High Explosive Incendiary-Traced 25 mm, M793, TP-T Target Practice- Traced. They have been included in the weapon directivity load module of BNOISE 3.2 and made available to users of the Integrated Noise Contour System INCS. Keywords Noisesound and Guns.
