New noise technology to make planes quieter
Aircraft are noisy, especially during approach; landing gears and high-lift devices are the chief noise sources. Reducing noise levels is a challenging priority, since noise pollution poses a high risk to human health. The EU-funded INVENTOR project will study the physics of noise generated by landing gears and high-lift devices at landing/approach. Bringing together 16 partners (research and technology organisations (RTOs), large industries, and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)) from 7 EU countries, the project will significantly contribute to Europe’s leadership in aircraft noise reduction and solutions. INVENTOR's main goal is to develop innovative low-noise installed landing gear, high-lift device components and noise reduction technologies, in order to lower external noise from business jet and short-to-medium-range transport aircraft.
