WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – The Air Force Research Laboratory 711th Human Performance Wing, Airman Systems Directorate, Battlespace Acoustics Branch and Owens Corning have entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement to develop and understand best practices for measuring and labeling the sound produced by small commercial unmanned air systems.
The Department of Defense uses a variety of UAS platforms to perform military functions. Similarly, commercial entities use UASs as a cost-effective solution for numerous activities, including agriculture and forestry management, cellular tower inspection, and landfill monitoring. Given the growing current and potential use of these devices in the future, UASs could become a source of sound pollution. As a result, researchers at the AFRL are working to develop sound regulations to avoid what could become a critical issue for the public.
