Setting up the noise monitoring system and stations at the airport is a significant move to strengthen the environmental protection solutions to the sensitive neighbourhood and combat noise nuisance around the airport area. The monitoring approach adopted is scientific; it validates all the reporting and the recommendation to identify the noise impact on our client’s surrounding areas. Another merit of the system is that applying systematic monitoring ensured compliance with international standards. ANewR’s professional acoustic consultants verify the aircraft noise monitoring locations, whether it is strategic locations for future urban development or the highly sensitive receptor. The technical team assures cutting-edge noise monitoring operations, stability, and accuracy.

Our track record

ANewR acoustics consultants have been supporting the aviation sectors in the Greater China region for the past decade, from airport planning, flight path alteration to community engagement. We assess potential environmental noise impacts and produce noise contours based on the flight path, aircraft type and loading, tilting angle, etc. We are one of the very few aircraft noise consultants in the region completing computer modelling for over 360,000 flight paths.

Aviation environmental design modelling

The ANewR acoustics consulting team is proficient in state-of-the-art computer software systems. From FAA’s INM (Integrated Noise Model) to AEDT (Aviation Environmental Design Tool) and GIS (Geographical Information Systems), we dynamically simulate both the spatial and temporal aircraft performance when consuming fuels, producing emissions and noise. Be it a single flight or any more significant scale scenarios, ANewR can use AEDT to undertake complete flight gate-to-gate analyses and study the relationships among aircraft-related fuel consumptions, noise, and emissions.

The innovative practice

While computer simulation is crucial for predicting potential noise performance, field measurement of noise levels is equally important. The ANewR monitoring specialists possess unparalleled knowledge and experience to carry out professional measures, from obtaining baseline noise levels to validating modelling outcomes. Of particular relevance, we are equipped with a 128-microphone acoustic camera (Norsonic Nor848A) to study the acoustical properties and localise sound sources of the interior cabin and the aircraft frame by providing visual images of sound.
