Abstract : The Aircraft Sound Description System (ASDS) is a method of describing aircraft noise. It has been established as the basic FAA technique for predicting community noise exposure caused by aircraft operations. This report (in four volumes) contains a description of the manual and computer techniques for applying ASDS as well as a current set of noise exposure contours. In this volume, a general introduction to the application procedures is presented. The material in subsequent volumes is described, and the required data preparation and basic methodology used in performing an ASDS application are presented. (Modified author abstract)
