Abstract : The USAF F-106A is a single seat, all-weather fighter/interceptor aircraft powered by a J75-P-17 turbojet engine. This report provides measured and extrapolated data defining the bioacoustic environments produced by this aircraft operating on a concrete runup pad for five engine-power conditions. Near-field data are reported for five locations in a wide variety of physical and psychoacoustic measures: overall and band sound pressure levels, C-weighted and A-weighted sound levels, preferred speech interference level, perceived noise levels, and limiting times for total daily exposure of personnel with and without standard Air Force ear protectors. Far-field data measured at 19 locations are normalized to standard meteorological conditions and extrapolated from 75 - 8000 meters to derive sets of equal-value contours for these same seven acoustic measures as functions of angle and distance from the source.
