The Waveforms and Sonic boom Perception and Response, or WSPR, project, gathered data from a select group of more than 100 volunteer Edwards Air Force Base residents on their individual attitudes toward sonic booms produced by NASA F-18 aircraft in supersonic flight over Edwards. WSPR's primary purpose is to develop data collection methods and test protocols for future public perception studies in communities that do not usually experience sonic booms.
