Provide a synthesis to the airport emergency management community which identifies and assesses best practices across various airport emergency operations centers (EOCs).
The goal of this research idea is to develop a predictive model of jet blast exposure based on local parameters (taxiway slope, operating conditions, aircraft operator practices, temperature, types of aircraft, etc.). This model will be based on jet blast measurements performed at various airports of different size and traffic in the U.S.
A Fatigue Risk Management Program (FRMP), specific to the needs of ramp workers, will be developed and implemented in at least one airport with the feasibility, acceptability and efficacy of the program evaluated. An implementation schedule should then be devised to provide a successful program to ramp workers in major airports across the country.
The goal of this research is to provide airports with best practices for addressing the homeless at airports.
Synthesize aspects of airport characteristics that can influence the planning, design, and construction of roads and highways and provide instructive considerations for each.
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.
The proposed work will provide a synthesis on the experiences of airport operators with regard to integrating the current alternative jet fuel into the airport fuel setting.
This project would plan, deploy and document an airside application of AGVT at an airport. The proposed project may be AGVT mowing, AGVT perimeter security, AGVT FOD detection, or other application assessed in ACRP 03-48.
