Real Time Airside Infrastructure Maintenance Evaluation and Hazard Detection

Airside infrastructure maintenance requirements are typically defined
using passive sensors that detect surface phenomena only, or using
devices that require slow or stationary equipment which affect capacity
& delay and may even require NOTAM closures for in-depth
evaluations. A need exists to streamline the evaluation process to
provide real time input to aircraft operations and progressive
infrastructure maintenance... more »

Improving Situational Awareness, Operational Risk Management, and Safety by Fusing Data from Multiple Sensor Types

The objective of this research is to develop and test an enhanced, data-fused airport safety system at an active airport. Data from solid-state radars; multi-spectral, electro-optical sensors; automated, real-time video feeds; and ADS-B will be fused and the output will be integrated on a single, functional user display for the purposes of:
• Enhancing SA and ORM for personnel other than those manning the Flight Safety... more »

A Gap Analysis of Aviation Infrastructure Between Airport and Air Navigation Service Capacities

There is a potentially a gap between airport capacity (e.g., runways, gates) and the increased capacity brought about by the satellite-based, digital infrastructure being implemented. Identifying the gaps between these two capacities and solutions to fill them will help decision makers be more effective in making wise investment decisions so that future airport and ANSP initiatives to increase capacity are more cost-effective... more »
