BaseOps User's Guide, Chapter 22: Editing Static Profiles

A static profile describes the noise created by an aircraft when its engine(s) are run on the ground during maintenance and repair work. Operating an aircraft in this manner is sometimes known as a static runup.

In BaseOps, static profiles are defined by a sequence of one or more static profile segments. Each segment describes the duration that the engine(s) are run at a particular power setting.

Static profiles are used by the NMap and AAM noise models. Unless one of those models is selected, the parts of the BaseOps user interface dealing with static profiles will be hidden. See Noise Models.

To work with static profiles, choose Static Profiles from the object type selector dropdown list. Static profiles can be added, duplicated, and deleted as described in Working with the List Pane.

To edit a static profile, first select it in the object list, then edit its properties in the text pane.

Static tracks have numerous properties. These are listed below, grouped for easy reference.

Aircraft Information


A static profile's segments are specified using a table, where each table row models the running of one or more aircraft engines for a specific power setting and duration. The following table columns are defined.

The triangle icon indicates the selected static profile segment. To select another segment, either click somewhere on that segment's row, or navigate to that segment using the Tab key.

To add a new segment, either press the Add Segment button , or press Ctrl + A. The new segment will be added directly below the selected segment.

To delete the selected segment, either press the Delete Segment button , or press Ctrl + Del.

To move the selected segment up or down in the table, press the Move Up and Move Down buttons and , or press Ctrl + U and Ctrl + D. This capability is provided solely for your own organizational purposes; NMap attributes no meaning to the order in which segments are listed.

When you add a new segment, BaseOps simply duplicates the selected segment. If desired, you can use the quick-add feature, which lets you efficiently add a segment while simultaneously specifying its properties. To add a segment, type a quick-add command into the text box, then press the Add Segment button or the Enter key.

The quick-add commands are somewhat cryptic, but once learned, they allow you to add segments very quickly. Frequent users will find it worthwhile spending a few minutes learning the quick-add commands. To display a list of the quick-add commands that you can use, either press the Quick-Add Hints button , or press Ctrl + H.
