COVID-19 has caused an unprecedented drop in commercial aviation traffic. This synthesis could explore issues raised by COVID-19 and how the aviation industry is responding to COVID-19 and the recovery of air travel in the future.
A Fatigue Risk Management Program (FRMP), specific to the needs of ramp workers, will be developed and implemented in at least one airport with the feasibility, acceptability and efficacy of the program evaluated. An implementation schedule should then be devised to provide a successful program to ramp workers in major airports across the country.
- Overview of the green taxiing solutions and their typical concepts of operations,
- Impact of these systems on airport operations, planning and design.
The research project includes producing or collecting:

Autonomous Ground Vehicles (AGVs) are coming... This project would develop a primer on the opportunities offered and the feasibility of widely implementing Autonomous Ground Vehicles (AGVs) at the airport - landside and airside.
Conduct a review and evaluation of best practices at airports for responding to sudden and major structural changes in the aviation industry. Provide suggestions for how Airports could be prepared for and respond to unexpected events with substantial industry-wide implications.
