TNIP Compact

The key aim of TNIP Compact is to provide the non expert with access to aircraft noise information in as user friendly a manner as possible.

TNIP Compact can be delivered as an auto-starting CD or as a package to download from a web site. It is preloaded with a number of data files which the user can select from the main menu. Once the files are loaded the user is presented with a screen showing the selected noise contours superimposed on an image of the airport. The user is then able to investigate how the contours have been generated by selecting either individually, or in groups, components such as the flight tracks, aircraft type, runway, etc and then seeing the number of movements that have been allocated to the selected components.

If one particular operation is selected Single Event Noise Contours can be generated for that event—these contours can be superimposed on cumulative contours.
