About Munich Aeroacoustics

Munich Aeroacoustics is an SME which is established in March 2018, where the legal registration has been initiated. The company reached full operation begin of 2019.

The roots of Munich Aeroacoustics are coming from the Aeroacoustics Research Team, which was embedded within the central research entitiy of Airbus Group, Airbus Group Innovations (AGI).
Munich Aeroacoustics was founded by Dr. Michael Bauer, who has been Head of Department "Aeromechanics & Acoustics" of AGI. Significant contributions and coordination activities in EC funded projects like OPENAIR, JERONIMO, COSMA, are just a snapshot of the team's success stories in the community of aeroacoustics research, where we are deeply linked inside the European research network. Research on UAM noise is the current focus of MUAA's work.

Munich Aeroacoustics provides a wide experience from over 20 years of activities in the area of aircraft noise and will be further providing services on the following topics:

  • Aircraft engine noise (jet and fan), including liner technology.
  • Propeller noise.
  • Airframe noise.
  • Helicopter noise.
  • UAM (Urban Air Mobility) noise.
  • Tool development for dedicated applications, e.g. community noise.
  • Noise predictions for novel a/c concepts (e.g. air taxis).
  • Project management and coordination.

Munich Aeroacoustics is capable to perform complex aircraft noise simulations using the validated in-house tool FLYO®.

The company is located in Kirchheim, about 10 km from Munich City.

Munich Aeroacoustics is a member of UAM Initiative Ingolstadt.
