The O’Hare Residential
The O’Hare Residential Sound Insulation Program (RSIP) is one of the nation’s largest and most aggressive programs of its kind in the United States.
The O’Hare Noise Compatibility Commission, in cooperation with the Chicago Department of Aviation, oversees the RSIP program to improve the quality of life for residents living near one of the world’s busiest airports by reducing the impact of aircraft noise in homes. Read More
Chicago O'Hare Noise Reduction Project -JDA Aviation Solutions
The O’Hare noise reduction project is a neutral study in an effort to move forward with the FAA and the City of Chicago focusing on alleviating noise impact without degrading operations, efficiency or safety.
The objective is to work collaboratively with FAA, the City of Chicago Aviation Authority and major users of the airport to seek potential noise reduction strategies that are practical to implement, have no significant impact on operational efficiency, and most importantly have no effect on safety.

AIRPORT NOISE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM REPORTS
Installed in 1996, the Airport Noise Management System (ANMS) enables the City of Chicago to monitor the amount of noise being generated over the communities surrounding O'Hare by the aircraft operating at the Airport. The ANMS collects, analyzes and processes data from a number of sources of information including a network of 32 noise monitors around O'Hare, FAA radar data, weather data and noise complaints.

Sound is created by a vibrating source that induces vibrations in the air. The vibration produces alternating bands of relatively dense and sparse particles of air, spreading outward from the source like ripples on a pond.
Sound waves dissipate with increasing distance from the source. Sound waves can also be reflected, diffracted, refracted or scattered. When the source stops vibrating, the sound waves disappear almost instantly and the sound ceases. Read More
