Design

Nearly every development project begins with the design process; therefore, much like the policy and planning topic area, the Design research topic area addresses a wide range of design disciplines targeting a vast and diverse number of airport facilities, such as pavements, buildings, environmental aspects, and technology solutions.

Develop Airfield Design Guidelines for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Develop guidelines for the design of airfield infrastructure to meet the unique needs of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The output of the research could be a guidebook to help practitioners design aviation facilities dedicated to safely and efficiently meet the operational requirements of UAVs of various sizes and configurations.

Runway Incursion Risk Modelling

Develop tools for evaluating the risk of runway incursions based on airport-specific factors such as airfield configuration, weather, aircraft operations, aircraft characteristics, and air traffic management practices. This project would involve data collection from historical runway incursion event data for storage in a relational database. These events would be classified by type following FAA and international taxonomy. ...more »

Airport Incubators

How can airports set up incubators unit to create a space for innovators to solve airport problems based on challenges placed on them from different departments? Then, using the resulting solution, partner (in terms of equity) with the innovators, help them form companies that the airport would be. Partner on in terms of the laboratory for the solutions, then market to other airports.
