Abstract

This paper presents a novel computational multimodal model designed for pattern recognition of aircrafts’ noise in real environments; with an 88.5% of effectiveness, it considers 13 different categories of aircrafts. This method includes measurements of signals of the noise produced during the takeoff at 25,000 samples per second and with a resolution of 24 bits, an spectral analysis made by means of an autoregressive model, an octave analysis, a normalization method created specifically for this work and two feed-forward neural networks. All the signals used for the design and evaluation of the results were obtained by means of field measurements.
