Working Group on the Characterization of Windscreen Acoustical Performance
Chair: Angelo Campanella
Scope: Develop and maintain standards for test methods to characterize the effects of windscreens on measurements, including self-noise. Specifically to consider screens that fit commercial (½” and ¼”) measuring microphones and sound intensity probes, commonly used for outdoor and indoor measurements in conditions with wind. Communication and liaison with related ANSI WGs.
Responsible for the following published standards:
- ANSI/ASA S1.17 – Microphone Windscreens – Part 1: Test Procedure for Measurements of Insertion Loss in Still Air
