Electric or Hydrogen aircraft could present long-term sustainable solutions for aviation, but will heavily depend on the ability of airports to coordinate and provide the infrastructure required for their operation. This research will look into such challenges and opportunities.
Create a data standard for aircraft ground operations and a tool to calculate detailed summaries of aircraft taxi times and flows from this aircraft vehicle location data
This project would deploy and evaluate airside automated mowing.
Recent Research and Synthesis studies have investigated airport implementation of air quality and greenhouse gas reduction projects (see 02-76 and S02-20, both in preparation). This research has identified a wide variety of projects and best practices for successful implementation. However, it has also identified gaps in data that require more in-depth study.
