To improve the ACRP Airport Microgrid Implementation Toolkit ("the Toolkit") by updating cost and technology information with new annual data, optimizing toolkit user interface, integrating new distributed energy resource capabilities, and identifying a long-term host.
The purpose of this digest would be to explore the legal issues of operating spacecraft under 14 CFR Parts 400 to 460 at Part 139 and non-certified aviation facilities.
Aviation facilities are vulnerable to incidents on the electricity grid that expose them to power outage. Power outages create significant operational disruptions and they can last several hours (e.g., 2017 ATL 11-hr outage, 2020 Texas outage). Are they best practices (incl. micro-grid explored in ACRP Synthesis 91) that can help increasing power supply resiliency?
ACRP 10-26 generated a potentially unprecedented level of media and government interest in a TRB project including coverage in CNBC and a formal progress inquiry from Congress. Microgrids... more »

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 »
A. Investigate how the March 13, 2020 DHS Notice of Arrival Restrictions (NAR) affected the designated arrival airports.
B. Determine COVID-19 health screenings protocols and self-quarantine recommendations at each airport for returning travelers.
C. Did airports follow their Communicable Disease Preparedness plan for the COVID-19 event, and if so is the plan adequate... more »
Install and operate a low cost remote tower solution using COTS/FAA approved radar only FOD detection solution (currently in operation at Heathrow) combined with an optical aircraft tail number/aircraft counter system/situational awareness system.
Develop practical guidance with examples on how to effectively plan, organize, conduct, evaluate outcomes, and improve operational processes as a result of tabletop exercises.
