UAS Noise Certification

The FAA has a lot of data on manned aircraft noise signatures, but almost none on UAS. Mississippi State University worked with the NUAIR FAA UAS Test Site to develop procedures to measure UAS noise signatures. This research focused on the collection of noise measurements of UAS using 14 CFR Part 36, Noise Standards, to begin the initial assessment of whether noise certification procedures designed for manned aircraft are appropriate for unmanned aircraft. Ultimately, this study and follow on studies will help the FAA set standards for UAS mission profiles to minimize noise hazards.
