Industry Survey--Benefits and Costs for Airport Noise And Operations Monitoring Systems

  Project Data
Funds: $250,000
Staff Responsibility: Joseph D. Navarrete
Fiscal Year: 2020

This project has been tentatively selected and a project statement (request for proposals) is expected to be available on this website. The problem statement below will be the starting point for a panel of experts to develop the project statement.

Airports use noise and operations monitoring systems (NOMS) to collect flight track and aircraft identification, noise measurements, weather, and other pertinent data. These systems also can be used to provide nearby communities with requested information about aircraft activity and noise in their vicinity. In the United States, some airports have acquired these systems; however, for several reasons, many airports have not, even though local pressure may exist for them to do so.  Research is needed to help airports decide if appropriate NOMS exist for their situation, evaluate the pros and cons of acquiring such systems, and determine the general resources needed to acquire, operate, and maintain these systems.
The objective of this research is to provide airports that are considering the acquisition of a NOMS with guidance based on current industry knowledge about the benefits and costs of such systems.
