Standard all-terrain vehicles are by their nature noisy and can expose both the vehicle’s operators and people/wildlife in the vicinity to unacceptable noise exposure levels. HGC Engineering was contracted by Defence R&D Canada to research and develop optimized noise control solutions for a fleet of ATVs that are being currently considered for purchase.
DRDC is an agency of the Canadian Department of National Defence responsible for the scientific and technological needs of the Canadian Forces ensuring they remain scientifically and operationally relevant and are able to respond to Canada’s defence and security priorities, now and in the future.
The key components of our contracted acoustical engineering services to the agency includes baseline noise measurements and analysis; a noise reduction strategy; and ATV prototyping incorporating active noise mitigation features.
