Abstract An acoustical assessment was performed on Firing Range A at Barksdale AFB in January 2012. It was determined that the definition of impulse noise in AFOSH Standard 48-20 was not met due to acoustical reflections, particularly off the side walls. Therefore, it was recommended that acoustical absorption be added to these side walls.
