DataKustik GmbH, based in Gilching near Munich, develops software for the calculation, evaluation and presentation of noise immission and sound distribution. Next to the software development, DataKustik GmbH is extensively researching and consulting in these fields. The roots of the company go back to the year 1975, when the former Managing Director of DataKustik GmbH, Dr. Wolfgang Probst, founded an acoustical consulting office for research and development. The major goal was to support public and private clients. Important research projects in the field of environmental noise and interior noise have led to standards and guidelines that have gained nationwide importance and, in some cases, internationally. Today, DataKustik GmbH is a modern software and service company with worldwide business connections.
The sound propagation software CadnaA (outdoor noise), CadnaR (indoor sound) and CadnaB (building acoustics) are being used by road authorities, railway administrations, airport operators and industrial companies in more than 60 countries. In order to ensure the high standard of our software and consulting operation in the future, we are continuously engaged in the development of guidelines and standards and in the screening of international methods of noise calculation.
We are proud to be considered as one of the leading developers of software for immission protection. Our products for the calculation and prediction of environmental noise, interior sound and air pollutant distribution as well as for building acoustics are state-of-the-art. The main objective of our work is the implementation of the noise propagation theory into easy-to-use software. Therefore, one of the most valued advantages of our programs is their high usability and flexibility, while the existence of sophisticated tools and options allow to handle any complex project. These are key points to the successful application of our software worldwide.
Another relevant aspect of our work is the constant research and consulting both at national and international levels. Examples of this are the development and improvement of noise calculation methods and standards by participating in international working groups or the adjustment of the calculation procedures and strategies for their application in different software environments.
Last but not least, DataKustik is committed to democratize the use of noise mapping and interior sound software. One of the most important activities to reach this target is the continuous training and education of professionals, users of our software, consultancy companies and acoustic departments at the administration in any field in acoustics. We also collaborate with the most relevant universities across the globe in order to introduce future new professionals into our world.
