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.
Wildlife Trafficking links wildlife trade and public health; and the COVID-19 pandemic is a prime example of how the transmission of disease that originated in wildlife could have a devastating impact on global public health.

The COVID-19 pandemic is a current and lasting threat to both the actual and perceived safety of Airport staff and customers. The use of innovative training tools can help Airports combat that threat.
In response to COVID19 but also inclusive of other contagions, airports need to understand how to plan, deploy and manage health screening.
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
Many emergency software applications have been developed in Flash, which no longer will be supported by the developer.
The selected research team will focus on developing a technology migration roadmap and working with TRB to identify the key requirements, features, and content of TERA that are vital to preserve, and those which can be redesigned, updated, or omitted entirely.
Risk management professionals have acknowledged that the reduction of airport escalator speed eases the transitions on and off of the the escalator. No speed studies have been conducted on airport escalators to determine an optimal escalator speed in the airport environment.
The ACRP Synthesis Study ( S04-25) Escalator Falls, identified two areas design and regulatory issues that need to be addressed to improve the safety of airport escalators. The two areas are (1) escalator signage that is pertinent to the airport environment, and (2) the use of bollards and other physical barriers that prevent people from bringing large and inappropriate items onto escalators.
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 »
COVID-19 has caused an unprecedented drop in commercial aviation traffic. This synthesis could explore issues raised by COVID-19 and how the aviation industry is responding to COVID-19 and the recovery of air travel in the future.
