Abstract : The report describes the development of a noise standard for permissible noise levels in FAA Air Traffic Control and Navigational Facilities. The contents of the report include noise definitions, theory of sound, sound measuring instrumentation, noise surveys, reference publications, and noise criteria. Criteria are given for noise environments which permit safe and satisfactory performance of tasks in the following facilities: traffic control centers, including important communication areas; air traffic control tower cabs; flight service stations and remote facilities. Criteria for each of these facilities are described and justifications for the selection of noise criteria are given. (Author)
