Airport Noise and Flight Track Monitoring

Know your environmental exposure

Airports can address environmental issues and minimize noise exposure through a range of initiatives based on the ICAO’s balanced approach to aircraft noise management. The aim of the method is to select optimal ways to enable aviation growth while minimizing negative impacts on the community.

The public is becoming increasingly concerned about how airport activity affects their lives. Airports must gain and maintain their social license to grow to meet increasing capacity demands.

Managing noise

Best practice airport environmental management is not just about reducing noise levels. It’s crucial that airports are seen to understand aviation impacts. They need to clearly explain their exposure and show how commitments on controlling impacts are being met.

Effective noise and flight track management programs build community tolerance by addressing noise impacts and setting accurate expectations of aviation activities. Neglecting to reliably measure, manage and report on environmental impact can inhibit operations and sustainable growth.

Monitoring flight tracks

Flight track monitoring enables airports to assess how well pilots are implementing procedures. Effectively managing noise abatement processes can substantially improve compliance with policies intended to reduce environmental exposure.

Poorly performing aircraft and operators can automatically be identified, enabling airports to target engagement and education efforts. Additionally, performance rates can be improved and community annoyance reduced.

Sophisticated noise and operations management

ANOMS provides 24/7 noise and flight track monitoring to manage environmental impact, establish agreed facts and effectively communicate with stakeholders.

The sophisticated system helps airports of all sizes determine flight procedure compliance, report environmental impact and optimize environmental capacity.

Simplified noise and flight track monitoring

NoiseDesk enables airports to easily create and manage comprehensive noise abatement programs without a dedicated noise office or specialized expertise. The web-based solution continuously monitors all arriving and departing aircraft to assess performance against a range of measures.

The simple-to-use service uses the ANOMS platform, and offers an easy upgrade path to the full ANOMS system.

Outsource noise and flight track monitoring

Our NoiseOffice services enable airport staff to focus on core business activities rather than their noise and flight track keeping systems. By cost-effectively contracting environmental data and information services, airports can eliminate the need to establish and maintain this expertise in-house.

NoiseOffice experts use our leading-edge solutions (including ANOMS and NoiseDesk) to reliably monitor a range of measures, including noise levels and procedural operations.

Accurately calculate carbon emissions

AirTrak helps airports accurately compute carbon emissions from aircraft operations including taxiing, holding, landing, take-off and en route.

By providing automatic and continuous assessment, the system enables airports to calculate aviation greenhouse gas emissions and the effectiveness of their carbon reduction measures.
