SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is leading 
an Urban Air Mobility (UAM) vehicle noise cooperative human response 
study involving multiple testing locations, other U.S. government 
agencies, academia, and industry. Overarching study goals are:
    1. Obtain a wide range of UAM vehicle sounds for use in human 
response studies.
    2. Provide insights into human response of UAM vehicle noise that 
will collectively be challenging for any single agency or organization 
to acquire.
    3. Create an open database of human response to UAM vehicle noise 
to support follow-on studies.
    The UAM vehicle noise cooperative human response study is currently 
divided into two phases: A Feasibility Phase (Phase 1) and Phase 2. 
Each phase executes one or more psychoacoustic tests. Phase 1 seeks to 
demonstrate and refine the test methodology that will be used in Phase 
2. Since UAM vehicle noise may be challenging to acquire as stimuli, 
the Phase 1 psychoacoustic test will use other types of aircraft noise 
as stimuli. Phase 2 will focus on capturing human response to UAM 
vehicle noise stimuli.
    This information collection is for the Phase 1 psychoacoustic test. 
A remote psychoacoustic testing platform will allow recruited test 
subjects to listen to NASA-provided test sound stimuli over the 
internet using their own computers and headphones and register their 
annoyance rating for each.
    The outcome of the Phase 1 psychoacoustic test is a demonstrated 
capability for ranking of sound stimuli by annoyance ratings from 
remote test subjects.

II. Methods of Collection

    Test subjects will electronically indicate their annoyance rating 
to test stimuli into an interface displayed on their own computers.

utility; (2) the accuracy of NASA's estimate of the burden (including 
hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (3) ways to 
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be

information on respondents, including automated collection techniques 
or the use of other forms of information technology.
    Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized
