Safe from sound? AFRL experts collect data inside hardened aircraft shelters around the world

An F-35 is parked inside a hardened aircraft shelter in the Netherlands during a testing session, led by acoustics experts in the Air Force Research Laboratory’s 711th Human Performance Wing. The team gathered acoustics data for the Netherlands Royal Air Force by affixing microphones to the fighter’s skin with a blue tape-like material and epoxies to avoid damaging the surface coatings, and then running up the engine at various intervals.
