Effective Removal and Temporary Application of Airfield Pavement Markings In Reserve

The objective is to determine best practices for the safe, cost-effective, and environmentally acceptable removal of existing markings and application of temporary markings on aviation pavement.

Behind the idea, the output should address the following questions:

• How much removal is adequate to prevent confusion in the cockpit?
• How much tolerance is there for altering the pavement surface?
• Are there mechanical... more »

Improving Situational Awareness, Operational Risk Management, and Safety by Fusing Data from Multiple Sensor Types

The objective of this research is to develop and test an enhanced, data-fused airport safety system at an active airport. Data from solid-state radars; multi-spectral, electro-optical sensors; automated, real-time video feeds; and ADS-B will be fused and the output will be integrated on a single, functional user display for the purposes of:
• Enhancing SA and ORM for personnel other than those manning the Flight Safety... more »

Legal Aspects of Airport Programs

Preparing Airports for Legal Considerations with Innovative and Emerging Aviation Technologies

The legal, policy, and regulatory environment may present challenges for certifying and authorizing some technologies due to novel features and combinations of features that could be found in novel aircraft designs. While this is not an exhaustive list, some of these could include distributed electric propulsion/tilt-wing propulsion, vertical take-off and land, autonomy hardware and software, optionally piloted configurations,... more »
