Airport Noise Monitoring System
The typical Brüel & Kjær Airport Noise Monitoring System (ANM) is not only suitable for airport noise monitoring but also perfect for all kinds of outdoor,permanent and temporary environmental noise measurements.
It includes a number of noise monitoring terminals (NMTs) placed strategically around the airport, a central computer system and a number of workstations. The NMT consists of a noise level analyzer, a weatherproof microphone, a system controller and a power supply, all mounted in a weatherproof cabinet with a climatic control unit to ensure an internal temperature is maintained. Correlated noise monitoring - where noise events are correlated with flight tracking data as well as weather and demographic data - can be used as an integral part of a comprehensive environmental monitoring policy for creating a more environmentally aware, "greener" airport.
