Noise Solutions

Aerospace and Aviation

Millions of people worldwide are impacted by the deafening noise that continuously erupts from airports. The effects of aviation noise can mask speech and other sounds; it can disturb people’s activities, cause vibrations and disrupt quiet or calm environments.

Think about the impact to those in the Armed Forces. The Navy estimates that jet noise from tactical aircraft can reach 150 decibels on the flight line as sailors and Marines prepare fighters and other aircraft for launching. Comparatively, a lawnmower typically produces noise levels of 90 decibels.

But it’s not only the booming noise that is damaging; the environmental impact is also paramount. The carbon dioxide, particulate matter, NOx and other pollutants emitted by aircraft have significant and sometimes long-lasting effects.

The Silent Aircraft Initiative

Andrew Faszer, was one of the researchers at Cambridge University MIT who unveiled the revolutionary concept for a silent aircraft in 2006. Originally conceived to significantly reduce airport noise for residents of nearby communities, the state-of-the-art and highly efficient design also offers improved fuel consumption of approximately 25 percent.

Faszer spoke about the project at the 2007 Spring Conference on Environmental and Occupational Noise. View the presentation. Visit The Silent Aircraft Initiative website.


There isn’t anything that Noise Solutions can’t attenuate, not even NASA’s Space Shuttle Crawler Transporters. In 2000, Noise Solutions won the bid over several other well-known vendors to reduce sound levels throughout the Shuttle Crawler transporters. After phase 1 of the 3 phase installation, which involved replacement and isolation of engine mufflers and exhausts and upgrading the engine pump room ventilation, preliminary results already showed significant noise reductions ranging from 5 to 24 dBA.

“I’ve been wanting to say “thanks” for the excellent work your Noise Solutions Team did in reducing the sound levels throughout the Shuttle Crawler Transporters. We had the opportunity to roll Shuttle Atlantis to the launch pad twice and I had the opportunity to experience first-hand the reduced noise levels due to your new Mufflers & Acoustical Ventilation Systems”

“Noise Solutions Inc. proved they could set up an engineered solution, they could guarantee it, and stand by it and in the end all of our targets that were set as objectives were met, measured, and proven to be true.”

“Our goal was to put 1445 horse power worth of compression on the Caroline Gas Plant without adding any noise to the existing ambient noise that came from the plant. I thought it was a pretty steep goal, but the acoustical assessment and Noise Solutions said it was achievable, so that seemed like the best viable option to go for. We did it and we met the goal of zero adder. Our operators were telling me later, when you stand outside the door in that building on the platform you couldn’t tell whether the compressor was running or not. So that’s pretty fantastic, really!”
