To mitigate aircraft and airport noise

Challenge/Domain
Challenge: 
Protecting the environment and the energy supply
Domain category: 
Technology
Enabler
Enabler: 
To mitigate aircraft and airport noise
Cluster of enablers: 
Improving the airport towards the future through a global approach The airport is a crucial infrastructure enabling the delivery of an air transport service as expected by society in 2050. The main local environmental impacts of air transport operations regard noise, natural resources and local air quality, which can affect health of people and eco systems. Mitigating these impacts is crucial to get acceptance of airports by citizens. The challenge will be to make the numerous stakeholders to work together towards solutions
Capability
Capability: 
Solutions for management of Noise Impact (MNI)
Sub capability: 
Noise Mapping & Land Use Planning (LUP)
R&I needs: 
- Recommended improvements from A21 & EU-CNOSSOS (Integrated Models) - Background noise input to noise mapping - Improved precision for single op (source data) - Wind effects with atmospheric profiles (T,H) - single event and global (year period) - Long distance propagation models - More information on real configurations - Better evaluation of NAPs impact at airport level
Achievements
2020: 
Improved Integrated Methods aimed at global policy setting and evaluation are complemented by more sophisticated models, able to consider local situations realistically while possibilities to include parameters such as weather conditions as well as changes in flight procedures or aircraft design. Easy access to necessary data bases (reference noise levels, operations, populations) is effective at European level. Light Aviation specificities have been considered.
2035: 
Improved Integrated Methods aimed at global policy setting and evaluation are complemented by more sophisticated models, able to consider local situations realistically while possibilities to include parameters such as weather conditions as well as changes in flight procedures or aircraft design. Easy access to necessary data bases (reference noise levels, operations, populations) is effective at European level. Light Aviation specificities have been considered.
Key Performance Indicator: 
No people impacted outside airport boundaries + TBD % improvement on LUP Implementation Progress Indicator
