Review and assessment of airport communicable disease screening technologies and innovations In Reserve

Medical technology companies are rolling out robots and drones to help fight it and provide services and care to those quarantined or practicing social distancing. The COVID-19 pandemic has fast-tracked the "testing" of robots and other technologies as officials seek out the most expedient and safe way to grapple with the outbreak and limit contamination and spread of the virus.

Establishing Metrics to Safely Restart Aviation Post COVID-19

ACI and IATA recently issued guidance on restarting the aviation industry post-COVID-19. However, there is currently no single measure that could mitigate all the risks of restarting air travel. ACI and IATA suggest that an effective implementation should be an outcome based and layered approach, and a range of measures as the most effective way of balancing risk mitigation with the need to unlock economies and to enable... more »

Implementing airport measures to reduce Aviophobia in a post-pandemic era

About 15% of American adults suffer some level of fear (aviophobia). While some of them avoid flying almost totally, there are 15% that are passengers* passing through a US airport and experiencing aviophobia from boarding their upcoming flight. This fear, exacerbated to some extent by various factors within the airport's control, impacts passenger experience, their behavior before, during, and after boarding their plane.... more »

Construction Safety and Phasing Plans (CSPP): Best Practices In Reserve

The objective of this study would result in a guide of best practices and development of a checklist to assist airports in creating a CSPP. The study should poll airports, FAA inspectors, and consultants (responsible for writing CSPPs) from across the country to gain insight on their best practices for creating a CSPP. The poll should include respondents from each FAA region to take geographical differences into account.... more »

Real Time Airside Infrastructure Maintenance Evaluation and Hazard Detection

Airside infrastructure maintenance requirements are typically defined
using passive sensors that detect surface phenomena only, or using
devices that require slow or stationary equipment which affect capacity
& delay and may even require NOTAM closures for in-depth
evaluations. A need exists to streamline the evaluation process to
provide real time input to aircraft operations and progressive
infrastructure maintenance... more »

Airport Common Use Program Development Guidebook In Reserve

In 2010, the ACRP published Report 30: Reference Guide on Understanding Common Use at Airports. Since that time, the airport strategies for implementation of common use and the technological solutions have significantly changed. Today, there is a greater focus on the "seamless passenger journey", providing new common use options, introducing technology innovations, and adapting to new business models. The research proposed... more »

Safety Management under Winter Conditions

Provide guidance for how to pro-actively assess pending or immanent winter storms at and individual airport. SMS and SRM processes direct apply to winter storm preparedness and management. By providing information on how to make such efforts part of the normal planning process, airports can improve not only safety but the effectiveness and efficiency of airport winter operations.

Describing, modelling and predicting passengers' arrival patterns

This project aims to address passengers' arrival patterns at airports through analyzing accessible datasets in order to provide an informed guidance for the resource planning of public airports in the U.S. The project will also assess if a new "baseline" arrival pattern should be established for airports to handle passenger traffic during the recover from the pandemic and post-pandemic.

Organizational Redesign: Will Your Changes Fly? In Reserve

It's a common refrain: Organizations work to reshape their workforce and organizational structure, transform their business model, or move in a new strategic direction. But a year after the launch, they still have not realized the anticipated benefits. As airports look to make dramatic and unanticipated changes in response to the COVID-19 virus, they will need practical guidance on how to make needed changes "stick."... more »

Stay Calm and Breathe: Creating a Hygienic Culture for Airports In Reserve

As the airline industry struggles to return to normal operations in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, airport operators must take steps to restore confidence in commercial aviation by reassuring the flying public that they are returning to a clean and safe environment. Operators must focus on improving sanitary conditions and indoor air quality (IAQ) within the terminals, where the high volume of people and activities... more »

Airport Pandemic Response Technologies Guidebook

The Covid-19 Pandemic has had a more deleterious effect on the worldwide aviation system than anything that has come since the Wright Brothers first set wing to wind in the early 1900's, eclipsing even the impacts associated with the September 11th attacks in 2001. The governmental guidelines (in some municipalities, stated as requirements), for physical distancing (the now-infamous six-foot rule), may work manually and... more »
