Noise Suppression Research Aircraft

The Noise Suppression Research Aircraft is an aeronautics and
astronautics design project in which the acoustic properties of a
scaled supersonic transport are studied.  4 microphones will measure
noise in a simulation of certification testing in accordance with the
regulations in the FAAs FAR Part 36.  Data reduction will yield
insight into the efficacy of noise mitigation technologies.  Acoustics
research was accomplished by Chris Ames, Tim Edmon, Breana
Merriweather, Kyle Shoun and Rick Smith.
