The objective of this applied project is to demonstrate the cost
effective utility and implementation of advanced surveillance, sensing,
or sequencing systems for terminal air traffic services.
Convert an already-developed tool for preparing NIMS/ICS compliant airport emergency plans (AEPs) to a web-based product and to host and maintain the tool/website for 3 years.
Airports need to understand the regulatory implications of increased sanitizing and disinfecting to combat COVID-19 and other contagions. Guidelines from Federal, State and Local authorities have dictated the use of chemicals in quantities far beyond what has been considered home use.
Conduct research on the hazards, risks, and causes of accidents impacting the movement of employees, users, and stakeholders about an airport. A focus of the research should be on people moving infrastructure, such as elevators, escalators, and motorized carts; along with the causes and prevention of slips and falls.
Airports need to understand the regulatory implications when developing and implementing plans for COVID-19 and other contagions' response. Further, international and US airports have already deployed technologies and operational plans to deal with public wellness and safety all in an attempt to provide a perceived "clean" environment to the public; which will help accelerate the restart of travel.
The research would develop a comprehensive guidance on concession agreement standards and terms. The new guidebook would update existing guidance and provides guidance on economic, operational and administrative issues not previously addressed.
Passenger load factors are determined and published by the airlines as the RPK's divided by the ASK's, but what goes into the denominator and numerator and how could they be impacted.
performance under conditions of task saturation. While task saturation
is listed as a top 10 safety concern, there is little to no evidence
that there are interventions in place to mitigate its impact on human
performance. This research will produce an intervention (training, tool,
etc.) that will be made available to airports nationwide for
their use. The... more »
