Abstract:

This report documents the results of a recent, successful project to develop a retrofit treatment package to reduce the acoustic signature of standard U.S. DOD 30 kW diesel engine-driven generator sets. The treatment resulting from this development reduces the detection distance of such generator sets by a factor of 3 in a compact package. Keywords include Diesel Generators, Noise Control, and Acoustic Signature Suppression.
