For a number of years the National Physical Laboratory, supported by the Ministry of Defence, has been developing AIRNOISE, a mathematical model for computing aircraft noise contours. The model is now being extended to include helicopter operations. In order to provide basic source noise data for the model, a special noise trial -Exercise Keevil -has been conducted at RAF Keevil in Wiltshire. One helicopter of each of six types performed a variety of flight operations over an array of microphones. Information on aircraft position and speed were obtained by video tracking techniques. This report describes the trial and presents the results obtained.
