Acoustics Technical and Urban Air Mobility (UAM) Noise Working Group meeting
November 13, 2020

The UAM Subproject within the Air Traffic Management Exploration (ATM-X) Project presented a technical update on AIRNOISE-UAM, a NASA-developed tool that models and predicts the local and regional noise impact of UAM operations, at the Acoustics Technical and Urban Air Mobility Noise Working Group virtual meeting, hosted by Glenn Research Center on November 5, 2020. The Working Group’s focus is to reduce or eliminate the impacts of UAM noise on the community. Dr. Jinhua Li presented a noise-aware flight planning capability that leverages AIRNOISE-UAM. There were over 100 audience members from NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and industry, for the AIRNOISE presentation. The audience expressed interest in the availability of AIRNOISE-UAM outside NASA. AIRNOISE-UAM was developed in collaboration with NASA’s Revolutionary Vertical Lift Technology (RVLT) Project, which developed the aircraft noise model. The next working group meeting is scheduled for April 2021.

Aviation Systems Division Represented at Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Career Fair
November 13, 2020

Kathy Lee represented NASA Ames Aeronautics at the 2020 Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Conference (“WE20”) Career Fair, November 4, 5, 9, and 10, 2020. SWE is a global, professional society focused on professional development for women as engineers and leaders. The theme for WE20 was “Practice Curiosity,” and marked SWE’s first all-virtual conference, scheduled over two full weeks. Over 17,000 individuals registered to attend the conference, and of those, over 7,000 were collegiate-level. The career fair provided a tremendous opportunity to engage with the pipeline for NASA positions. The NASA team (which included representatives from Ames Research Center and Johnson Space Center) connected with hundreds of conference attendees each day, and answered questions about internships and careers at NASA. NASA’s workforce data indicates that women comprise 25% of all the Science & Engineering (S&E) employees at Ames Research Center; within the Aeronautics Directorate, 23% of its civil service, S&E workforce are women.
