WP1: Recommendations for Regulation on Low Sonic Boom


The overall objectives of WP1 are to:

  1. Contribute to new international regulation on supersonic overland flight (ICAO);
  2. Define a strategy towards this regulation using the output from the project;
  3. Ensure the technical coordination of the project, and deliver a technical synthesis.

WP1 starts at M1 and ends at M36. In particular, this Work Package is organized around the following three tasks and sub-tasks:

  • Task 1.1: Exploitation and Analysis of available data and Communication to ICAO
    • Subtask 1.1.1: Interface to ICAO SSTG
    • Subtask 1.1.2: Exploitation and Analysis of available information
    • Subtask 1.1.3: Applicability to broader speed ranges
  • Task 1.2: Sonic Boom Standards and Methods of Justification: Recommendations on procedure, metrics, Means of Compliance (MOC)
    • Subtask 1.2.1: Requirements for Certification Demonstration
    • Subtask 1.2.2. Means of Compliance
    • Subtask 1.2.3. Recommendations
  • Task 1.3: Technical Coordination & Synthesis
    • Subtask 1.3.1: Technical Coordination
    • Subtask 1.3.2: Synthesis

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 769896.
