NASA and France’s aerospace research agency ONERA have entered into an agreement to conduct studies meant to help mitigate the impacts of civil air transportation noise on communities.
The partnership aims to develop new technologies for airplane noise prediction and analyze human reaction to aircraft noise through the use of measurement methods and large data sets, NASA said Friday.
“Noise is a major issue affecting not only the aviation community, but citizens around the world that live near active airports,” said Jaiwon Shin, associate administrator of NASA’s aeronautics research mission directorate.
“This agreement with ONERA establishes a partnership in the area of mitigating of aircraft noise research to create a synergistic effect that just can’t be achieved when working alone,” added Shin.
Shin and Bruno Sainjon, president and CEO of ONERA, signed the agreement during a bilateral meeting held Tuesday in Daejeon, South Korea.
Both parties will also share technical knowledge and data as part of the research initiative.
