Abstract:

The Keweenaw Research Center was contracted to develop a Kit to reduce the noise signature of the Mobile Over Snow Transport MOST system, using current off the shelf items. Together with a literature search, manufacturing information search and field tests, a kit was developed that reduced noise levels to 10 dBC or more after removing wind noise. Several suggestions are recommended including a proposed follow-on study to further reduce noise levels emitted from the MOST vehicle.
