Develop guidance to identify and design the necessary features of an efficient, sustainable, comprehensive, safe maintenance facility that is customized to satisfy the needs of a given airport.
Energy vectors are a means of transporting and storing energy from place and time of availability to a place and time of utilization. The proposed work aims to address the newly emerging forms of energy vectors to support airport operations' energy needs
This project aims to address passengers' arrival patterns at airports through analyzing accessible datasets in order to provide an informed guidance for the resource planning of public airports in the U.S. The project will also assess if a new "baseline" arrival pattern should be established for airports to handle passenger traffic during the recover from the pandemic and post-pandemic.
The airport vehicle monitoring system and parking garages could be linked to local and national law enforcement centers to validate vehicle licenses... more »
Among the case study airports in ACRP-1-42, how did the governance model affect how the airport responded. What recovery goals were achieve. How did measures of performance change if at all. How did G/A airports fare in the recovery compared to commercial service airports.
Develop model airfield lighting maintenance training tools (e.g. videos, guides) for small airports where such maintenance is performed by multi-tasked staff who are not electricians. Develop a model airfield lighting maintenance program for small airports including guidance for contracting out airfield lighting repairs when needed.
Major changes are in the offing that will impact parking needs at airports - transitioning of the automotive fleet to electric power will require charging facilities. Automation (autonomous cars) will reduce parking demands. The pace of these changes is largely unknown, but strategic thinking is needed to prepare for these changes.
