dc.descriptionTechnical Note-
dc.description.abstractThis technical note (TN) explores the spatial patterns associated with the probability of receiving a community complaint in response to blast noise from military training. In this instance, blast noise is defined as high-intensity impulsive noise emitted by large weapons, heavy artillery, and explosions. This TN specifically seeks to understand who in the communities surrounding military installations are more likely to use complaining as a coping strategy. Community noise complaints, which often escalate into lawsuits and legal actions, are an ongoing impediment to military training. They frequently result in training curfews, restrictions, and range-closures. The current Department of Defense (DoD) approach to handling noise complaints is ad hoc and reactive, and thus, is generally ineffective. This is a major problem given that noise from testing and training activities impact unit readiness and soldier effectiveness activities. The problem is projected to become worse as installations increase their training capacities and unit throughput as part of the base realignment and closure process (BRAC) (Report to Congress on Sustainable Ranges 2013). Training restrictions due to noise have been cited as one of the factors that will negatively impact installations out to 2025 (Lachman et al. 2011).en_US
