US Air Force Contracts Private Company To Research UAV Noise Characteristics

11 April 2017
Military Embedded Systems reports that as part of its effort to develop sound regulations for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), the US Air Force Research Laboratory’s 711th Human Performance Wing/Airman Systems Directorate/Battlespace Acoustics Branch has reached a cooperative agreement with composite-systems company Owens Corning for the development of “best practices for measuring and labeling the sound produced” by small UAVs. The results “will be used to develop a national standard.” The company will record measurements in its acoustic library, while the Air Force will provide open-air testing at the White Sands Missile Range site in New Mexico.
