BRRC provided King County International Airport (KCIA) with advanced acoustic modeling for a proposed Laterally Displaced Approach (LDA). The analysis demonstrated the impact of over-water noise propagation on the proposed approach vectors. BRRC utilized the military noise model NoiseMap for this analysis, importing the flight operations from KCIA’s 2004 Part 150 study. Image Credit: redlegsfan21 from Vandalia, OH
Midland International Airport EA, TX
BRRC developed noise contours to evaluate impacts due to the Proposed Actions to operate the Lynx, XCOR’s commercial reusable launch vehicle, from Midland International Airport (MAF). The No Action Alternative noise contours were developed using a combination of FAA’s Integrated Noise Model (INM) for civil aircraft and DoD’s NoiseMap program for military aircraft. The Lynx rocket sonic boom and noise modeling were performed using PCBoom and BRRC’s Launch Vehicle Acoustic Simulation Model (RUMBLE).
