Guidebook on Sources of Data for Air Passenger Travel

Develop a guidebook that would assist airports and other aviation analysts become familiar with the different sources of data that are available to support analyses and forecasts of air passenger travel. Provide guidance on which types of data are appropriate for use in a given study, understand the strengths and limitations of the different potential data sources, and estimate the likely costs involved in their use.

Airport Accident Analysis and Impacts to Safety Zones

Aviation accident data has limitations for establishing airport safety zones used to guide airport-vicinity land use decisions. Establishing uniform reporting criteria across responsible agencies will assist local jurisdictions to define safety zones and apply them to maintain airport viability.

Emerging Ground Access Technologies at Airports: A Primer

New ways to ride from/to the airport are emerging: micromobility, autonomous and connected vehicles, electric vehicles, Hyperloop, underground electric skates, urban air mobility, etc. Old ways are being recycled and improved, such as (but not limited to) bus rapid transit (BRT), light rail, high speed rail (e.g., Brigthline station at MCO), etc.

Aplication of Congestion Pricing to Improve Terminal Curb Operations and Enhance HOV Ground Access to Airports

Airport roadway and terminal curb congestion are fast becoming a critical constraint at many high-volume US airports. Despite much research on methods to improve HOV and transit ground access modes, geographically distributed local trip origins and the ubiquity of low-cost private vehicle modes of access continue to inhibit meaningful HOV access to congested airports. In recent years new express lane tolling innovations... more »

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 »

Planning standards for Autonomous Vehicles on Landside Ground Operations

Autonomous vehicles (AV)s are soon to be in the traffic mix at airports nationwide dropping-off and picking up passengers. While us "humans" drive through crowded roads and can find the smallest place by the curb to stop and drop-off and pick up pax, can an AV do it?

Do AVs need to have a specific amount of curb space before it pulls in and out?

Do the curb spaces need to communicate with the AVs to indicate spaces... more »

Vehicle-to-Grid Microgrid at Airports

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.

Guidance on Concept Planning and Designing of Airport Coordination Centers

Airports are increasingly interested in bringing multi-discipline subject matter experts together in a common environment to improve collaborative decision making during regular and irregular operations. Guidance on how to plan and design for these centers is needed.

Describing, modelling and predicting passengers' arrival patterns

This project aims to address passengers' arrival patterns at airports through analyzing accessible datasets in order to provide an informed guidance for the resource planning of public airports in the U.S. The project will also assess if a new "baseline" arrival pattern should be established for airports to handle passenger traffic during the recover from the pandemic and post-pandemic.

A Guide to Best Practices in Infrastructure and Programs Designed to Increase Public Transit Access to Airports

Information and data are needed on the experiences and best practices of airports and airport authorities, partnered with city, county, metropolitan, state, and federal transportation agencies, for increasing public transit access to airports. Whether capital projects or community-oriented programs, some airports and transportation agencies have been more successful in shifting passenger travel to and from airports away... more »
