Airport Noise Monitoring

Measure Aircraft Noise Level

Airport environmental noise monitoringAirports, small and large, use noise and operations monitoring systems to reduce the noise of flight operations in the surrounding community.  Airport noise monitoring is generally used to evaluate noise abatement programs and to develop aircraft departure and arrival procedures that minimize the impact of aircraft noise based upon altitude, flight path, and time of day.  Noise monitoring is often linked with radar tracking so that specific aircraft can be identified when noise limits are exceeded and so operational requirements can be enforced.

Larson Davis provides noise monitoring systems to airports, consultants, and system integrators with the technology and support to make a successful program.

SoundAdvisor™ for Permanent, Long-term Noise Monitoring: Model NMS045 delivers 24/7 connectivity, continuous power capabilities, and a rugged design to simplify your long-term testing. Encased in a fiberglass enclosure, NMS045 is mounted to a permanently placed pole. With easy installation and maintenance, AC or solar powered options, and email or text alerts of exceedances, Model NMS045 is an ideal permanent monitoring solution.

SoundAdvisor™ for Portable, Short-term Noise Monitoring: Model NMS044, similar to Model NMS045, is a completely wireless solution designed to run indefinitely on solar power, allowing you to take measurements and view them 24/7. A rugged case houses the system making it an ideal solution for remote noise monitoring. The Model NMS044 can be deployed rapidly and easily. As with NMS045, you can receive real-time alerts of exceedances.
