  FAA Home Offices Policy, International Affairs and Environment Environment and Energy Research & Development Integrated Noise Model (INM) Share; Share on Facebook; Tweet on Twitter; The Integrated Noise Model (INM) has been replaced by the Aviation Environmental Design Tool (AEDT) as of May The INM was a computer model that evaluated aircraft noise impacts in the .   The FAA Integrated Noise Model (INM) provides a conceptually simple method for characterizing aircraft noise near airports. It includes a determination of the total time that the sound level exceeds six different thresholds, and also the equivalent A-weighted sound level, L sub eq, and the day-night average sound level, L sub dn, at a number of points surrounding a particular airport. noise contours for regional airports and local authorities. ERCD developed the UK Aircraft Noise Contour Model – ANCON [1,2]. There are significant similarities between the FAA's Integrated Noise Model (INM) and ANCON, having both been created from the same guidance material produced by SAE [3], ECAC [4] and ICAO [5]. Both can. The FAA Integrated Noise Model computer program INMPROG has been made available to the public for computing a variety of noise indices in the vicinity of airports. One component of this program package is a data library which provides both acoustic and operational data for certain standard aircraft types and flight procedures.

The four models examined were two versions of the FAA’s Integrated Noise Model, INM; a model developed for the NPS, the National Park Service Overflight Decision Support System or NODSS; and a model that is a derivative of the U.S. Air Force program NOISEMAP, called the NOISEMAP Simulation Model or NMSIM.   The validation of the theoretically obtained results is driven through an applied sensitivity analysis, in which the same parameters as used for the theoretical analysis (the same variations of 1%, 10% and 50%, receivers, etc.) are considered, using the FAA Integrated Noise Model Version software, and using the segmentation technique.   The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) used the Integrated Noise Model (INM), Version , to support the aircraft noise assessments for the interim conditions presented in Chapters 2 and 3 and Appendix C in the Draft Re-Evaluation. The same version of INM was also used for the analysis of the interim conditions in the EIS.   U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Aviation Administration Independence Avenue, SW Washington, DC () tell-FAA (() ).

The FAA Office of Environment and Energy supports the assessment of aircraft noise impacts by developing and maintaining noise-evaluation models and methodologies. In particular, the FAA's Integrated Noise Model (INM) is widely used by the civilian aviation community for evaluating aircraft noise impacts in the vicinity of airports.

Office of Environmental Quality.]. By: Barbara E. Lichman, PhD. In a marked change in longtime Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”) policy regarding analysis of noise and air quality impacts from FAA initiated, directed or funded projects, FAA has substituted a single new model for the long mandated Integrated Noise Model (“INM”) and Emissions and Dispersion Modeling System (“EDMS”).
