Airports need to understand the regulatory implications of increased sanitizing and disinfecting to combat COVID-19 and other contagions. Guidelines from Federal, State and Local authorities have dictated the use of chemicals in quantities far beyond what has been considered home use.
This research would produce a guidebook to help airports educate new employees on their on environmental procedures and practices. research would produce a guidebook to help airports educate new employees on their on environmental procedures and practices.

Do the curb spaces need to communicate with the AVs to indicate spaces... more »
Small airports—that is, general aviation, non-hub, and small hub airports—can benefit significantly by integrating standard business planning with all aspects of resiliency planning.
Airports need to understand the regulatory implications when developing and implementing plans for COVID-19 and other contagions' response. Further, international and US airports have already deployed technologies and operational plans to deal with public wellness and safety all in an attempt to provide a perceived "clean" environment to the public; which will help accelerate the restart of travel.
The data in the original report and supporting the tool is from 1990-2000, and airports need guidance and information based on the latest climate data to accurately assess risk and plan mitigation strategies. This research update idea was developed as part of project ACRP 11-02/39, Environmental Products Update and is one of the priorities identified by the research team and through industry outreach.
Conduct research into cost effective strategies for periodic monitoring of airspace surfaces such as TERPS 20:1 surfaces to ensure they remain clear of obstructions. Particularly at smaller rural airports that may not have staff, zoning, or significant infrastructure that would otherwise make these issues easier to manage.
The objective of this research is to specifically address how airports can incorporate large-scale, unpredictable shock events into traffic... more »
