Establishing Metrics to Safely Restart Aviation Post COVID-19

ACI and IATA recently issued guidance on restarting the aviation industry post-COVID-19. However, there is currently no single measure that could mitigate all the risks of restarting air travel. ACI and IATA suggest that an effective implementation should be an outcome based and layered approach, and a range of measures as the most effective way of balancing risk mitigation with the need to unlock economies and to enable... more »

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.

ACRP Badge and Medallion Award Program

The proposed research is designed to develop a comprehensive series of awards to recognize the achievement of individuals who have studied and mastered specific topical ACRP Reports, related Syntheses, webcasts, and other materials. Participants are recognized through a system of badges, medallions, and certificates. This program loosely emulates the iconic Boy Scout/Girl Scout Merit Badge programs.

Guidance on Developing an Airport Service Operator Business Model

A Service Operator Model (SOM) is a business model for airports to consider adopting which is a change for most U.S. airports from a landlord management approach to a more collaborative business approach by managing all of the functional areas of the passenger journey. The Guidance will describe initial steps such as developing the business model that fits your airport.

Facilitating a Better Understanding of Water Quality of Airside Stormwater Runoff at Airports

In accordance with the Clean Water Act, airports must responsibly manage stormwater runoff through a combination of industrial stormwater permitting, MS4 permitting, and state/local post-construction stormwater requirements for development. Permitting requirements for airports can vary widely across the nation, with some airports also subject to municipal stormwater fees. These fees may be reduced via credits for effective... more »

Urban Air Mobility Noise Modeling

Community acceptance of the rapidly emerging Urban Air Mobility (UAM) market will be strongly driven by public noise concerns; however, no regulatory tool exists to evaluate potential environmental noise impacts. Whereas conventional helicopters have one or two rotors, UAM vehicles may have large numbers of rotors for different functions that operate at variable speeds. These differences necessitate the development of... more »

Commercial Space Transportation Noise Model Validation

Accurate predictions of the noise environment in communities surrounding airports and spaceports from launch and reentry vehicle operations require models that have been validated over a range of vehicle types, operations, and atmospheric conditions. Research is needed to validate the commercial space operations noise models developed under ACRP 02-66 using the community noise measurement database collected under ACRP... more »

Synthesis of programs for permanent art installations at airports

ACRP Report 157 (Improving the Airport Customer Experience)(2017) found that airport arts programs play an important role in improving the customer experience at airports and that airports with such arts programs are among the most highly rated airports in the world. ACRP Synthesis 11-03/Topic S01-21 (The Benefits of Airport Arts Programs) surveyed and synthesized the the state of practice of airport rotating visual art... more »
