An overview of participation in NASA’s CarpetDIEM campaign

2021 
This talk summarizes Brigham Young University’s (BYU) participation in NASA’s 2019 sonic boom data collection campaign in California, USA. Dubbed “Carpet Determination In Entirety Measurement” (CarpetDIEM) Phase I, the program was designed to measure conventional cruise booms across a widespread time-synchronous array, at the site where initial acoustical testing of the X-59 low-boom supersonic aircraft is planned. BYU deployed a total of 11 portable data acquisition systems across 10 nautical miles and tested a variety of microphone and data acquisition configurations. This talk describes both technical and logistical lessons learned at CarpetDIEM Phase I that can help with future X-59 test design including acquisition hardware comparison and evidence of turbulence.
