Transportation noise has become a major concern for residents in urban environments, giving rise to stacked legislation at various levels. Current noise reduction technologies do not seem to be sufficient to achieve the targeted reduction. Noise abatement classical procedures add additional weight. Active technologies are mainly applied to downscaled models components and have a moderate technology readiness level.

As a consequence of the continuous air transport growth and to comply with stringent environmental regulations, there is a strong demand for the development of novel noise reduction techniques in the aeronautical sector at an acceptable cost and weight. The general objective of this project is to design innovative surface treatments that would be applied on portions of aircraft fuselage and wings in order to reduce the exposure of the community to airborne and airframe noise sources. For this, we have been inspired by the silent flight of certain nocturnal predatory birds, such as owls, which are able to fly close to their prey without being detected above 1.6 kHz due to the special morphology of their wing plumages, schematically shown in Fig. 1.

El grupo de investigación G-CARMA está buscando un informático, matemático o físico para la contratación de un investigador predoctoral cofinanciado por el Fondo Social Europeo a través del Programa Operativo de Empleo Juvenil y la Iniciativa de Empleo Juvenil (YEI). La referencia del contrato en el CSIC es: CAMPD17_ITEFI_001 y la referencia de la Comunidad de Madrid es: PEJD-2017-PRE/TIC-4310.

Ya está disponible el vídeo de la ponencia presentada por Luis Hernández Encinas, Víctor Gayoso Martínez (CSIC) y David Arroyo Guardeño (UAM) en las XI Jornadas STIC CCN-CERT.

The Institute for Physical and Information Technologies (ITEFI) is an institute within the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), whose primary aim is the research on novel physical technologies applicable to industrial, biomedical and environmental fields, as well as information technologies associated with the communications security and cryptography fields.

The name of this institute hopes to reflect, in a general manner, both the research lines currently pursued by our scientific staff and those that could be acquired in the future by the evolution of both the present ones and the technologies involved.

The staff working in this institute – created the 26th of June 2013 by the State Agency CSIC – comes from centers and institutes within CSIC, which are now disappeared, such as the Institute of Applied Physics (IFA), the Acoustics Institute, the Institute of Industrial Automation (IAI), the Information Security Institute and the Center of Physical Technologies “Leonardo Torres Quevedo”.

The name of “Leonardo Torres Quevedo”, which gives name to the institute, makes reference, not only to the building that acts as the headquarters of the ITEFI, but also wishes to serve as the unequivocal symbol of the will of being pioneers in the fields of physical technologies, mathematics and information.
