Boston's Logan International Airport has an advanced noise monitoring system consisting of noise, aircraft track, weather, and land use information. The system has been used to support INM 5.0 validation efforts, to improve INM track definitions, to assist in assessing aircraft departure procedures, and to isolate the types of aircraft affecting various communities. Examples of the newer applications pursued will be presented.
