Development of a microgrid standard framework (Technical, Financial, Regulatory, Permitting) solution which can apply to all airports across the country. Due to the complexity of the airports' operation and numbers of stakeholders and decision-makers, this comprehensive solution has not been developed.
Blockchain technology (e.g., open source Enterprise Ethereum) can be used as a vendor neutral integration layer to secure IoT devices to prevent malicious attacks, enable myriad IoT devices installed at the airports to work together in concert to unlock new value creation between different parties, and reward IoT operators for the value produced by data.
The ultimate objective of employing this type of technology is to enhance collaboration to better meet project / organizational goals,... more »
To propose, develop and encourage US airports, airlines & industries to adopt IoT standards.
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
Intelligent Transportation Systems and Flight Tracking app data can be merged to provide real-time information that can reduce landside congestion at airports.
Airports need to understand the regulatory implications when developing and implementing plans for COVID-19 and other contagions' response. Further, international and US airports have already deployed technologies and operational plans to deal with public wellness and safety all in an attempt to provide a perceived "clean" environment to the public; which will help accelerate the restart of travel.
ASTM in concert with the Society of Aircraft Performance and Operations Engineers recently published E3188 - Standard Terminology for Aircraft Braking Performance. Measuring the braking reports from flight crews trained with the new definitions are then mapped to runway conditions and aircraft measurements to create an objective metric for accuracy.
The airport vehicle monitoring system and parking garages could be linked to local and national law enforcement centers to validate vehicle licenses... more »
