Abstract:

The technical report consists of three main elements 1 measurement of real, airborne weapon systems to characterize the noise data required for accurate modeling, including characterization of complex air-weaponry noise due to a combination of various sources and aircraft platforms 2 modification of noise propagation algorithms and statistical representation of the distributed sources, and modifications that involve three-dimensional representations of noise sources to properly describe the air-to-ground propagation, and to account for potential shieldinginterference from the aircraft itself and 3 integration of the air-weaponry data and algorithms into a new computer model. These combined elements enable new sets of operational scenarios to be modeled, and the capability will assist in public presentation and understanding of potential noise impacts and their mitigation.
