Friendlier Skies

 Friendlier Skies

 

Jeanette Elliott, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics

Our team from Lockheed Martin Aeronautics won an engineering award in 2011 for a project that involved optimizing the flight patterns of fighter jets to minimize the noise that affects surrounding neighborhoods. JMP® statistical discovery software from SAS helped us evaluate flight patterns in the vicinity of a base, and the project won the Distinguished Engineering Project Achievement Award from the San Fernando Valley Engineers’ Council. The complete process, Rapid Profile Development Methodology (RPDM), produces accurate results quickly, and stimulates creative solutions. The development of this methodology allowed us to rapidly change airplane parameters and flight conditions and then look at the resulting impact on the noise for the community. This process is much quicker and easier using JMP®. We can accomplish in seconds what used to take hours or days to perform
