Research Institution
AVID proposes to develop software that determines takeoff and landing operational parameters for advanced military aircraft which result in trajectories that reduce noise in populated areas surrounding military airfields. This software will utilize GIS technologies to make teh analysis site-specific for a given airfield. Gradient method and genetic swarm optimization methodologies will be employeed to determine the set of operational parameters which reduce a cost function based on perceived noise level at observer stations on the ground.
