Conduct an industry survey of the benefits and costs associated with an Airport Noise and Operations Monitoring System
Background (Describe the current situation or problem in the industry, and how your idea would address it.)
There are a number of airports throughout the United States with NOMS and there are many airports that for a number of reasons do not currently have such a system and likely get pressure to acquire a NOMS. The predominate use of these systems is to provide the nearby communities with the information and knowledge they request to understand why they experience aircraft operations in their neighborhood. The management of complaints, comments and requests for information is often the major task for which NOMS are critical given they collect flight track and aircraft identification, noise measurement, weather and other pertinent data for such analyses.
The results of the industry survey would assist airports that are interested in obtaining a new or updated system by providing cost and benefit information to determine: (1) whether an appropriate NOMS exists for their airport, (2) the pros and cons to acquiring a NOMS, (3) the likely components they will require to address their communities' concerns and (4) the approximate cost to acquire and maintain a NOMS at their airport. Airports with existing NOMS will benefit as well as they can assess their needs to determine whether they can remove or add NOMS components to better respond to the needs of their communities.
Cost Estimate and Backup (Provide a cost estimate and support for how you arrived at the estimate.)
