Abstract

Impulse sound from firearms discharge has high sound level but short duration.  An accurate determination of soud exposure under these conditions requires suitable measurement equipmen.  This paper will compare the sound exposures determined using a standard sound level meter at approximately 48 kHzwith equipment measuring at the MIL-STD-1474 rate of 200 kHz and at an intermediate sampling rate of 100 kHz.  A variety of firearms is used for comparison, to address differences in the source.
