TsAGI scientist discuss strategic aeroacoustic issues with European colleagues

1 February 2018


The negative health and environmental impact of aircraft noise is considered by the international scientific community as one of the key factors for consolidation of efforts in the development of aviation. Hence, representatives of the European Commission, Clean Sky program and the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) opened a discussion. A seminar on “EU policy on aircraft noise studies” was held in mid-January in Brussels (Belgium) in which a TsAGI delegation participated.

The participants reviewed the entire spectrum of research on aeroacoustics, from the creation of new technologies to the norms and standards set by the ICAO Committee on Aviation Protection (CAEP). In particular, they discussed the work carried out by the European Community together with TsAGI. A relevant example is the RUMBLE project, which is focused on the development of proposals to ICAO regarding the formation of generally accepted international norms of the sonic boom level from a supersonic passenger aircraft.

An important achievement for the Institute was to maintain the status of Contact Point from Russia in the X-Noise International consortium to coordinate the research on aircraft noise. The Aviation Noise Impact Management through Novel Approaches (ANIMA) project is meant to become the next stage of development in this multi-year project. ANIMA will provide support to the roadmap of European aeroacoustics research by attracting experts at the national level, defined by the X-Noise contact points, and managers of existing projects.

Also, attendees agreed to organize a seminar for European and Russian scientists with financial support from X-Noise. It is planned that the event dedicated to the formulating of directions for joint research on noise, will take place in Berlin.

Victor Kopyev, head of the Aeroacoustics and Aviation Ecology Division of TsAGI gave his evaluation of the meeting in Brussels. “Most important for us is the example of a multi-year integrated management of noise, which involved research institutes, universities, aviation companies, airports, the European aviation safety agency EASA and ICAO,” he noted. “A unique support structure is created for the environmental management and further advanced research. The evolution of approaches in creating noise reduction technology is reflected in new projects, AERIALIST, ARTEM TURBONOISE, RUMBLE, TILDA and their position in the working map of X-Noise. We can say with confidence that the seminar was frank and exhaustive.”
