One of the United Kingdom's largest airport operators, Manchester Airports Group Plc (M.A.G.), has expanded its noise management capabilities with a new Airport Noise and Operations Monitoring System (ANOMS 9) from Bruel & Kjaer.

ANOMS 9 enables M.A.G. to monitor and report on noise and operations at multiple airports, including London Stansted, Bournemouth, East Midlands and Manchester, with a single system. The four airports serve around 43 million passengers every year and are an important part of the local economy.

The airports will also receive WebTrak and WebTrak MyNeighbourhood; part of a suite of web-based applications that assist airports in building good community relationships. WebTrak enables local residents to self-investigate recent noise and flight tracks, whilst WebTrak MyNeighbourhood illustrates typical operating scenarios. The WebTrak sites enables users to find answers to frequently asked questions, such as: "How loud and low was that plane" or "How many flights pass over my house in a single day".

Additional noise monitoring terminals (NMTs) will be deployed at Stansted, Manchester, East Midlands and Bournemouth. NMTs continuously monitor the environment for noise events, which are defined as noise that remains above a certain level for a prescribed period of time. These noise events are correlated with flight information and enable the airport to demonstrate compliance with regulations, respond to community enquiries, address noise issues with airlines, adjust operating procedures to limit noise impact and carry out measurements to improve their noise maps.

"Through a recent tender process we examined new offerings from Bruel & Kjaer and other companies, before finally deciding that Bruel & Kjaer's ANOMS 9 solution and new Type 3639 NMTs met all our needs," said Dr. Tim Walmsley, Environment Manager at Manchester Airport.

"We are extremely pleased to continue our 20 year association with M.A.G.," said Kent Espersen, European Sales Operations Manager for Bruel & Kjaer. "We're also thrilled to be able to offer M.A.G. our brand new ANOMS 9 platform and state-of-the-art noise monitoring terminals at the start of this new era."
