Expert Opinion

In particular noise situations, for instance if high-enregy or low-frequency sound sources are involved and specific guidance is missing in standard and regulations, Cervus is a competent contact for an expert opinion or dedicated study. This also holds if it comes to large distance sound propagation outdoors.

Research in Acoustics

We conducted and conduct scientific studies in the following fields of acoustics:

  • Physical and engineering sound propagation models for high-energy sound (shooting sounds amongst others)
  • Sound propagation outdoors in general
  • Sound propagation for projectile sounds
  • Models to describe the sound reduction through forest
  • Sound abatement measures in the near field of non-linear sources

We publish the scientific results in journals and in conference prodeedings, most of our publications are found on this website. Standards and guidelines are very important for the prediction and assessment of noise. Therefore, Cervus is an active member in relevant boards and working groups of standardisation.

Noise Management

Cervus developed the daily co-operative noise management on military training areas. The noise management has two goals on the same value

  • to reduce the noise load and annoyance in the neighbourhood
  • to grant the necessary practice of the armed forces

Applying the noise management since 2010, the operation on military training facility is more flexible and less noisier. Also the British Forces in Gemany adopt this procedure at Senne training area successfully.

Management Software

Applying modern concepts of noise management needs computer programs to assist the opreator during the daily planning process. The dedicated management software WinLarm absorbs most of the daily work providing tools to plan the shooting with respect to requirements of safety and noise load.
