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.
To develop carbon offset methodologies for both commercial and general aviation airports that generate revenue.
The efficacy of creating a standardized credentialing system that is paperless.
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.
This research for the guidebook will focus on two parts: Part 1 of... more »
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.
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.

Evaluate the potential impacts to airport operations of connected vehicle technologies, including vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications.
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 »
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.
