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 »

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 »

Optimizing Airfield Snow Removal

"The objective of this project is to research best practices focused on managing the resources at airports to optimize the number of runways and taxiways that can be kept open during winter storms. The guidelines should include using process optimization to reduce variation caused by unpredictable weather events and computer simulation analyses to optimize the number of equipment needed, resources required, and optimize... more »

Rapid Setting and Durable Concrete Overlays for Airfield Pavements

Concrete overlays are a growing trend in pavement maintenance and rehabilitation. Rapid-setting concrete overlays offer the potential or reopening aprons, taxiways and runways quickly. The viability and durability of rapid setting concrete overlays over asphalt or concrete airfield pavement should be evaluated and tested in order to provide airports and consultants with suitable practice guidelines.

Using Security Automation as a Revenue Stream

Airports parking garages use automated license plate scanning in support or in lieu of paper tickets to establish fee payments. This technology might also be used to identify vehicles that might cause a threat and vehicles that might have civil or criminal enforcement issues.

The airport vehicle monitoring system and parking garages could be linked to local and national law enforcement centers to validate vehicle licenses... more »

SkyDome - Keeping the sky's above airports safe & secure with accurate airborne detect alerts

SkyDome offers airborne awareness in all weather conditions for enhanced collision avoidance at airports. The autonomous operating solution does not require a man-in-the-loop, although remote access for authorized personell from the cloud is available. The primary purpose is to detect and alert pilots about airborne objects in their flight path (landing and take-off) that are difficult to see with the naked eye (example:... more »

Access for Active Modes

Encouragement of non automobile use to/from and within the airport is important to minimizing traffic and enhancing air quality. While many airports are located within walking distance of airport office parks and employee housing, many airports cannot be accessed by pedestrians and bicyclists. The advent of new technologies like e-scooters and e-bikes is proving very popular in cities and would seem to extend threshold... more »

Guidelines to Decentralize Curbside and Security to Alleviate Airport Congestion

Our team aims to architecturally and financially model new ways to relieve airport congestion through the expansion of the curbside, while also allowing for new programs to monetize the landside and the airside. Our team intends to develop architectural solutions for modifying airport parking garages, providing ride share lobbies and amenities, re-programming parking garages and surface lots for alternative uses, and... more »
