Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 197 / Friday, October 13, 2017 / Notices regarding the proposed information collection to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 300 E Street SW., Washington, DC. Attention: Lori Parker, NASA Clearance Officer. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or copies of the information collection instrument(s) and instructions should be directed to Lori Parker, NASA Clearance Officer, NASA Headquarters, 300 E Street SW., JF0000, Washington, DC 20546, (202) 358–1351. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract NASA is proposing construction of a Low Boom Flight Demonstration (LBFD) experimental aircraft, aka X-plane. This information collection will enable NASA to pre-test methods to collect information from individuals to determine community response to the new, quieter sonic booms, prior to the start of flight testing the X-plane. No public exposure to any form of sonic boom will occur during the pre-testing phase. The pre-test will be conducted by telephone interview. NASA wants to evaluate telephone surveys to assess prompt public response associated with experiencing low amplitude sonic booms over multiple, geographically dispersed communities. Responses will be voluntary. The new X-plane is designed to produce low amplitude sonic booms. Ultimately, flight testing of the X-plane is intended to (1) demonstrate and validate the technology necessary for civil supersonic flights that create low amplitude sonic booms, and (2) assess community response to the new, quieter, sonic booms. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES II.

Feedback collected under this generic clearance will provide useful information, but it will not yield data that can be generalized to the overall population. This type of generic clearance for qualitative information will not be used for quantitative information collections that are designed to yield reliably actionable results, such as monitoring trends over time or documenting program performance. Such data uses require more rigorous designs that address: The target population to which generalizations will be made, the sampling frame, the sample design (including stratification and clustering), the precision requirements or power calculations that justify the proposed sample size, the expected response rate, methods for assessing potential nonresponse bias, the protocols for data collection, and any testing procedures that were or will be undertaken prior to fielding the study. Depending on the degree of influence the results are likely to have, such collections may still be eligible for submission for other generic mechanisms that are designed to yield quantitative results.
