Airport Operational Databases (AODB): Benefits to the Airport Stakeholders and Users

Airport operations from the curbside to the airspace are increasingly relying on data. Airport operators and their stakeholders are procuring airport operations suites that do not necessarily talk to each other (even within the same stakeholder/entity). The purpose of the Airport Operational Databases (AODB) is to create an Airport Information Center integrating various operational data for making them available to a... more »

Best Practices for Enhancing Airport Power Supply Resiliency In Reserve

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?

Renewables to Resilience: Strengthening Airport Resilience through Retrofitting Existing Renewable Energy Assets In Reserve

Approximately 20% of public airports have adopted solar PV over the past decade. However, most of these renewable projects have not been developed to provide resilient power directly to the airport to keep critical areas and assets up and running in the event of a power disruption. This project will evaluate existing roadblocks to retrofit solar PV projects to add resilience capabilities and provide guidance to airports... more »

Airport Microgrid Toolkit Upgrade and Host Identification In Reserve

To improve the ACRP Airport Microgrid Implementation Toolkit ("the Toolkit") project funded through ACRP (ACRP 10-26: Airport Microgrid Implementation Toolkit)by updating cost and technology information and identifying a long-term host.

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 »

Lessons learned from the recent hurricanes

While there is existing guidance on emergency planning and business continuity for airport operation, the recent storms to hit the gulf and eastern coasts have presented different challenges in airport operations. The project would pull lessons learned from airports effected by the damages of the storms as well as external factors that may not be under airport control. examples:
- Loss of NAVIADS
- The airport has power... more »

Effective Task Saturation Interventions to Improve Airport Employee Performance

The objective of this research is to improve airport employee
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 »

Best Practices in Disaster/Resilience Planning for Airport/Airline Employees and Business Partners

Airport Emergency Plan requirements do not fully recognize the impact on airport employees and business partners in times of disasters or emergency events. Lessons can be learned from aviation organizations such as Jet Blue who have models for anticipating employee and business partners family needs for emergency support. Essential employees need support for their families in order to assist the airport and community... more »

Assessing airport strategies for protecting the public from communicable diseases In Reserve

The proposed research investigation should encompass:

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 »

Digital Twin for Airports: Going Beyond BIM

Building Information Modeling is mainly used for design & construction phase of an airport project. Ultimately, if stated in the project contract requirements, as-constructed model data is transitioned to Asset Management platform used by Airport Facilities Management team. Hence, the intent of BIM is to represent a physical space digitally for construction purpose and not to address daily occupancy and utilization of... more »

Urban Air Mobility Market Study In Reserve

Urban Air Mobility (UAM) is a safe and efficient system for air passenger and cargo transportation within an urban area, inclusive of small package delivery and other urban Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) services, which supports a mix of onboard/ground-piloted and increasingly autonomous operations. In recent years, UAM has developed rapidly due to advances in technology and with pilot projects underway in Dubai and planned... more »

SkyDome - Keeping the sky's above airports safe & secure with accurate airborne detect alerts

SkyDome offers airborne awareness in all weather conditions for enhanced collision avoidance at airports. The autonomous operating solution does not require a man-in-the-loop, although remote access for authorized personell from the cloud is available. The primary purpose is to detect and alert pilots about airborne objects in their flight path (landing and take-off) that are difficult to see with the naked eye (example:... more »
