Revenue and Customer Satisfaction Decision-Enabler Model

A research paper and computational model is needed to help airports thoroughly look at financial decisions for new infrastructure that result in improved processing rates, increasing non‐aeronautical revenue justifications, prioritizing gating requests that match with changes in airline network models, creating the best financial return for all parties, and improves the overall satisfaction of passengers (check‐in, security... more »

Improve Traveler Experience while Generating Additional Revenue Through the Effective Use of Data

Recent data suggests that a 0.01% increase in passenger satisfaction results in an increased spend of $0.80 per passenger, while an additional 10 minutes spent in line, decreases that spend by 30%. Using available data to generate and push valuable information to the traveling public will optimize and help streamline the passenger travel experience, leading to increased passenger satisfaction, as well as increased airport... more »

Selection and Application of Building Materials for Passenger Terminals

To create a comprehensive resource for architects, interior designers, engineers and airport operators to help them in selection of these materials for new construction or renovation of existing facilities. The guidebook should also provide guidance to airport operators and designers on how to evaluate life cycle cost implications of selecting different building materials.

Guidebook for Airports to Enhance/Support FAA Trajectory Based Operations (TBO)

The FAA's "Vision for Trajectory Based Operations", Version 2.0 dated September 2017, states that TBO will leverage NextGen improvements to make flight operations more efficient and predictable:
"TBO in 2025 depends upon use of improved data sets and greater collaboration between the FAA and its customers to enable better traffic planning and scheduling decisions. Improved data sets reflect access to new data elements,... 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 »

Managing Safety in the Movement of People about the Airport Terminal

Conduct research on the hazards, risks, and causes of accidents impacting the movement of employees, users, and stakeholders about an airport. A focus of the research should be on people moving infrastructure, such as elevators, escalators, and motorized carts; along with the causes and prevention of slips and falls.

Guidance for structures over active airport taxiways

Bridge structures over taxiways are becoming more common at large airports. DEN, SEA, and LGA all have bridges that are complete or under construction. There is very little guidance on structures, fire codes for aircraft fueling in vicinity of the bridge, and clearances for OFA and TSA, particularly vertically. Would like to help develop some guidance, in particular with fueling and vertical clearances, and faa required... more »

Effective Task Saturation Interventions to Improve Airport Employee Performance

The objective of this research is to improve airport employee
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 »

Automated Assistance in the Airports for Special Needs Passengers(3A-SNP)-The use of Indoor Unmanned Vehicles - IUA

Some passengers with special needs are loosing autonomy by using the actual costly and somehow inefficient manual service for reduced mobility passengers. The idea novelty is to suggest an automated solution using either existing airport means or advanced technlogy solutions for providing such a service. The architectural concept of the system is scallable in order to easilly implement any service for any specific need.... more »
