Airport noise management
Our solutions help you manage your noise abatement policies. Our technology links data from radars to information about each aircraft operation to actual noise levels measured on the ground. Our systems know where every aircraft is, what it is, who is operating it and how much noise it makes every time they arrive and depart the airfield.
Airport emissions management
Assessing carbon dioxide from aircraft arriving and departing the airport is important to help you understand how you can guide and influence the airlines to take measures to help reduce emissions.
Managing the environmental impact of airport operations is a complex task with a multitude of external stakeholders that must be kept regularly informed. Industry best practice calls for a collaborative approach to managing the environmental impact whilst building awareness and understanding of how and why an airport operates the way it does.
Airport noise and operations monitoring system
Brüel & Kjær’s ANOMS Airport Noise and Operations Monitoring System is the world-leading, complete solution for accurate monitoring and management of noise and operations at any size airport and across multiple airport locations.
The system is modular and accommodates multiple data sources, ranging from any number of noise monitoring terminals (NMTs), radar and flight plan systems and weather information to provide a complete picture of operating conditions at the airport and the source of any environmental disturbances.
ANOMS is easy to use and provides the most accurate and reliable data available to support your noise impact reduction strategies and community engagement programs.
Web-based airport noise monitoring application
NoiseDesk is a web-based airport noise monitoring application that enables you to run an airport noise programme without building an entire environment department.
Rather than providing a mountain of data to process, NoiseDesk informs you of what needs your attention. Airport personnel use an easy-to-learn data analysis, mapping and reporting interface, while ANOMS and Brüel & Kjær manage the background data collection and processing.
Utilising the proven ANOMS system currently in use at hundreds of airports worldwide, NoiseDesk offers access to all of Brüel & Kjær’s other modules, including WebTrak and Flyquiet, if required.

Online flight and noise information for the community
WebTrak provides your local community access to flight and noise data, both in real-time or historical mode. Self-investigation functions including location tools and the ability to search by date and time enable anyone to answer their own questions about flights and noise around the airport, thereby freeing airport staff for other activities.
Because it’s a software service, WebTrak is hosted, maintained and continually upgraded by Brüel & Kjær. WebTrak provides all the latest community engagement tools, without the maintenance requirements of old fashioned, locally installed software solutions. Best of all, it doesn’t require a huge cash outlay up front, doesn’t require more time from your staff and system administrators and doesn’t become obsolete or outmoded in a year. WebTrak is user-friendly and designed to integrate simply into your airport website.
Brüel & Kjær offers a wide selection of noise monitoring terminals specifically designed for outdoor use in a wide variety of climatic conditions for both permanent and portable situations. We also provide hardware components for integration into existing systems.
Our noise monitoring terminals can be operated remotely through a variety of noise and environment monitoring software solutions.
Our design philosophy has always been focused on optimised up-time, minimal data loss and modular components to enable our systems to grow with your needs.
Continual improvement based on feedback from our clients; some of the world’s biggest airports, ensure you get a state-of-the-art and robust solution for all your noise monitoring requirements.
