About

Noise is a human problem, not just an engineering problem. The Advanced Mobility Propulsion Lab at Digital Futures is aiming to develop novel data, tools, designs, and solutions to enable ultra-quiet electric aircraft propulsion systems. Novel aircraft envisioned by Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) and Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) present many unique aerodynamic and aeroacoustic challenges. Distributed electric propulsion (DEP) is ushering in an entirely new class of aircraft with up to 30 propulsors per aircraft. Existing acoustic prediction tools, noise models, acoustic metrics, and noise regulations are insufficient to ensure that the AAM noise impact will be publicly acceptable in populated urban, suburban, and rural communities. We will collaborate with the leading electric aircraft companies, DoD partners, all levels of government, and small businesses to develop comprehensive integrated solutions to ensure communities elevate their possibilities, not their annoyance levels.
