Open innovation in the terminal: real-time feedback from travelers on airport initiatives

A lot of talent goes through the terminals daily. Airports can solicit targetted feedback on specific projects and initiatives from the travelers. There is no better source or time since the customers are in the right state of mind to provide feedback that affects them.

Research Projects

Develop Runway Design Guidelines for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Develop guidelines for the design of runway infrastructure to meet the unique needs of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The output of the research could be a guidebook to help practitioners design aviation facilities dedicated to safely and efficiently meet the operational requirements of UAVs of various sizes and configurations.

Guidebook for Rapid Airfield Concrete Pavement Slab Replacement and Patching

The objective of this research is to produce a guidebook that gives clear and accurate guidance to airports and airport consultants on the latest and best procedures and materials available with a proven performance record of accomplishment to provide repairs and slab replacements that both ensure on-time opening to traffic and long-term durability.
This research for the guidebook will focus on two parts: Part 1 of... more »

The Impact of Changes to the Runway Condition Assessment Matrix (RCAM) on Airports

Changes to the RCAM have impacted how and when airports remove contaminants on the runway and in turn has impacted the hours needed for personnel and equipment to remove contaminants as well as the useful life of markings and pavement surfaces.

Airport Operational Databases (AODB): Benefits to the Airport Stakeholders and Users

Airport operations from the curbside to the airspace are increasingly relying on data. Airport operators and their stakeholders are procuring airport operations suites that do not necessarily talk to each other (even within the same stakeholder/entity). The purpose of the Airport Operational Databases (AODB) is to create an Airport Information Center integrating various operational data for making them available to a... more »

Organic Waste Recycling

The goals of this research project are to 1) prepare a roadmap of sustainable organic waste management
solutions, ideally according with United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) introduced Waste
Hierarchy, 2) find the best available practices of food and biobased waste reduction, reuse and disposal,
3) pilot those immediate options available, 4) research considerations for the development of on-site
biowaste disposal... more »

Impact of Alternative Aircraft-Taxi Systems on Operations, Planning and Design

The main objectives of this idea are providing the U.S. airport industry and their stakeholders (airlines, ATO, ground handling service providers, etc.) with the following:
- Overview of the green taxiing solutions and their typical concepts of operations,
- Impact of these systems on airport operations, planning and design.

The research project includes producing or collecting:
- An inventory of the existing and prospective... more »

Consequences of Delayed Maintenance of Airport Assets

This research project will present a process for quantifying the consequences of delayed maintenance of airport assets. It will cover asset preservation policies, maintenance and budget needs, and the analyses of delayed maintenance scenarios. This process considers delayed maintenance caused by the inability to meet the owner-defined application schedule or the unavailability of the funds required to perform all needed... more »

Effective Task Saturation Interventions to Improve Airport Employee Performance

The objective of this research is to improve airport employee
performance under conditions of task saturation. While task saturation
is listed as a top 10 safety concern, there is little to no evidence
that there are interventions in place to mitigate its impact on human
performance. This research will produce an intervention (training, tool,
etc.) that will be made available to airports nationwide for
their use. The... more »

Access for Active Modes

Encouragement of non automobile use to/from and within the airport is important to minimizing traffic and enhancing air quality. While many airports are located within walking distance of airport office parks and employee housing, many airports cannot be accessed by pedestrians and bicyclists. The advent of new technologies like e-scooters and e-bikes is proving very popular in cities and would seem to extend threshold... more »

Risk Evaluation at Runway High Speed Exits

Majority of aviation accidents have occurred in airports, and it is significantly high during the landing phase. With growing demand when aircraft movements divert in to high speed exit taxiways, possible aircraft accidents may not be uncommon in these high speed exit taxiways as well.
