Abstract : MR^NMAP (MOA Range NOISEMAP) is a general-purpose, PC-based computer program that calculates the noise levels under Military Operating Areas (MOAs), Military Training Routes (MTRs), and Ranges. The calculations in MR^NMAP are based on a United States Air Force (USAF) dataset of measured aircraft noise levels called NOISEFILE. The program calculates standard noise metrics of Ldnmr, Ldn, CNEL, Leq, SEL, and Lmax. The noise levels are output as contours or in tabular format, and are suitable for inclusion in Environmental Impact Statements and Environmental Assessments. The computer model has a Microsoft WindowsTM based graphical user interface that allows the user to draw the airspace, specify areas of high/medium/low activity, and draw the specific flight tracks for bombing runs and military training routes. Menu features are used to enter the operation data and exercise other features of the noise model. Contained in this report are instructions on installing and using the computer program. A separate report, WR 95-18, 'Noise Calculation Procedures Contained in the MOA Range NOISEMAP (MRNMAP) Computer Program' describes the noise models and presents results from experimental measurements that validate the noise models.
