Effective Removal and Temporary Application of Airfield Pavement Markings In Reserve

The objective is to determine best practices for the safe, cost-effective, and environmentally acceptable removal of existing markings and application of temporary markings on aviation pavement.

Behind the idea, the output should address the following questions:

• How much removal is adequate to prevent confusion in the cockpit?
• How much tolerance is there for altering the pavement surface?
• Are there mechanical... more »

Update to ACRP Report 157: Improving the Airport Customer Experience In Reserve

Airports strive to improve customer service to meet evolving customer service needs as they shift away from viewing airlines as their primary customers and view passengers as customers and guests of the Airport. The objective of this Problem Statement is to develop an update to the 2016 ACRP Report 157: Improving the Airport Customer Experience to address the needs of commercial airport customers and tenants, and General... more »

Guide to Airport Innovation – Creating an Organizational Fit for the Future In Reserve

Airport teams are ramping up innovation labs, centers and executive level positions to support critical thinking, strategy and innovation. Airports need an approach to innovation that is powerful, effective and broadly assessable, that can integrate into all aspects of the business and region, and that individuals and teams can use to generate breakthrough ideas that are implemented and have a meaningful impact in the... more »

Geospatial Data Governance - Organizational Factors and Best Practices In Reserve

Airport and related aviation organizations generate and absorb large amounts of data, particularly geospatial data such as CAD, GIS, BIM, LiDAR, and aerial imagery. How can airports leadership and staff learn from industry best practices, including from others such as university campuses, in terms of effectively managing the flow of data to facility operations, maintenance, and other end-users, so they are not held up... more »

Enabling Airports to be ACR/PCR Compliant - From Design to Implementation

The new (Aircraft Classification Rating) ACR- (Pavement Classification Rating) PCR pavement strength reporting method is to be implemented by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and airports around the world are working towards ensuring that their airports are complying with the new requirements. For airports in developing countries and local airports, this can be challenging due to the availability of... more »

Review and assessment of airport communicable disease screening technologies and innovations In Reserve

Medical technology companies are rolling out robots and drones to help fight it and provide services and care to those quarantined or practicing social distancing. The COVID-19 pandemic has fast-tracked the "testing" of robots and other technologies as officials seek out the most expedient and safe way to grapple with the outbreak and limit contamination and spread of the virus.

The aviation industry needs to assess... more »

Evaluating the Impact of Aircraft Lateral Turning Forces on Pavement Design and Performance

This research would help airports understand, qualify and quantify lateral shear forces within the surface or subsurface layers of flexible pavements induced by landing gear lateral turning movements; develop models to take the excessive lateral shear forces into consideration in the design of runway asphalt concrete surface layers; formulate recommendations to include shear resistant asphalt concrete layer (or sublayer)... more »

Construction Safety and Phasing Plans (CSPP): Best Practices In Reserve

The objective of this study would result in a guide of best practices and development of a checklist to assist airports in creating a CSPP. The study should poll airports, FAA inspectors, and consultants (responsible for writing CSPPs) from across the country to gain insight on their best practices for creating a CSPP. The poll should include respondents from each FAA region to take geographical differences into account.... more »

Airport Common Use Program Development Guidebook In Reserve

In 2010, the ACRP published Report 30: Reference Guide on Understanding Common Use at Airports. Since that time, the airport strategies for implementation of common use and the technological solutions have significantly changed. Today, there is a greater focus on the "seamless passenger journey", providing new common use options, introducing technology innovations, and adapting to new business models. The research proposed... more »

Construction sequencing best practices for airports

New construction and renovation projects at airports experience cost and schedule constraints due to the unique operational aspects and differing facility types. For example, apron expansions must give heed to airside operations and terminal renovations of retail space must often take place overnight when passenger traffic in minimal. This research will investigate state of the art techniques to enhance construction sequencing... more »

Investigating the Potential of Alternative Materials and Configurations for EMAS Design In Reserve

An EMAS is positioned within the runway safety area (RSA) and is comprised of an energy absorbing material that brings the aircraft to stoppage during an overrun. EMAS are currently constructed using low-density 1.21m x 1.21m (4-ft x 4-ft) variable thickness cementitious blocks. New materials, new configurations, along with implementing technology should be investigated to develop an efficient and economic EMAS design.... more »
