Best Practices for Implementing Effective Airport Biometrics - A Primer

Air traveler volume is rising year over year, placing strain on airport facilities' ability to process passengers efficiently and effectively in an operational footprint constrained by long-term capital investments. Additionally, airports must continuously mitigate against the risk posed by the "insider threat." Biometrics (e.g. fingerprint, facial, iris recognition) have the potential to mitigate these risks, capture... more »

Airport Microgrid Solution Standard Framework

Development of a microgrid standard framework (Technical, Financial, Regulatory, Permitting) solution which can apply to all airports across the country. Due to the complexity of the airports' operation and numbers of stakeholders and decision-makers, this comprehensive solution has not been developed.

Synthesis Topics

Wildlife Management and Perimeter Fence Security

To receive the full potential of perimeter fencing, the fence needs to be extended underground. Wildlife can push the bottom of a chain link fence up or dig under to enter onto properties and cause delays or damage. Animal barriers that can interlock with chain link fencing to extend and secure the fence have proven to be very effective. Dig Defence, LLC has a proprietary solution for these issues.

Perimeter Security Control and Incident Response

Guidebook on measures to safeguard airport users, staff and facilities by effectively controlling access to airport property through surveillance of the perimeter fencing and by rapid and effective responses to unauthorized penetrations. While this examination of modern security systems would focus on anti-terrorist and anti-criminal activity it should also consider the applications of such systems to wildlife control... more »

Airport Evacuation: Assessment of Landside Capacity Using Micro-Meso Simulation Model

Based on the severity of the crisis situation in airport it may not be enough to evacuate the passengers from the airport, but also to make a safe passage from the airport to their final or intermediate destination, which might include the passengers' residence, train stations, bus terminals, remote parking locations, and hotels. Though researches have been done on passenger evacuation in an airport setting, but little... more »

Transportation Emergency Response Application (TERA): Migration Options Beyond 2020 due to Flash End of Life

Many emergency software applications have been developed in Flash, which no longer will be supported by the developer.

The selected research team will focus on developing a technology migration roadmap and working with TRB to identify the key requirements, features, and content of TERA that are vital to preserve, and those which can be redesigned, updated, or omitted entirely.

Modernizing Air Cargo Operations in U.S. Airports

Air cargo is vital part of supply chain for many companies and cities. Air cargo carries about 35% contribution in value terms of the world's cargo, only 1% in volume, yet many airports, especially in the USA, still do not have modern technology such as Cargo Community Systems, material handling systems in warehouses, and airports designed to move cargo, including e-commerce cargo, at the same speed and efficiency as... more »
