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 »
This project will create a practical guide that provides airport managers and other key personnel with day-to-day strategies to help combat human trafficking at airports. The need for this guidance was identified at the May 2018 ACRP insight event on economic and social sustainability.
Define evidence-based, practical tools for airports interested in supporting anti-human trafficking efforts, through a project that complements and keep step with efforts at the USDOT and FAA, as well as those of a Congressionally-directed Federal Advisory Committee and its recommendation, due out July 3, 2019.
As electric vehicles reach the consumer mainstream and decarbonization moves energy loads from natural gas to electricity, airports will be under increasing pressure to upgrade their electrical capacity. This research paper would explore the potential use of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology as a local microgrid, offsetting peak electrical demand and providing increased levels of electrical system redundancy.
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.
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.
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.
