Effective Removal and Temporary Application of Airfield Pavement Markings

The objective is to determine best practices for the safe, cost-effective, and environmentally acceptable removal of existing markings and application of temporary markings on aviation pavement.

Behind the idea, the output should address the following questions:

• How much removal is adequate to prevent confusion in the cockpit?
• How much tolerance is there for altering the pavement surface?
• Are there mechanical... more »

Antimicrobial Formulations to Reduce Mold Intrusion on Airfield Markings and Pavements

The reoccurring growth of mold and continued maintenance required to prevent discoloration of airfield paint markings poses a continued problem that draws money that would otherwise be used for pavement improvements. This research will employ recent innovations in antimicrobial research to develop a quaternary ammonium compound that can be applied as a top-coat to markings and pavement surfaces whereby the modified surface... more »

Integrating Ramp Towers into the Airport SMS

Provide information regarding best practices around involving ramp towers in a local airport's SMS program. Ramp towers provide another level of eyes on the system and communication directly with aircraft and ATCT (in many cases). By looping ramp tower operators into the SMS program they can understand and assist with providing an efficient non-movement area operation.
