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 »

Streamline security screening - internationally

The pre-check line is a great way to streamline the screening checkpoint but unfortunately it's only applicable to the USA. Often the flow at the standard lane is slower due to carry-on luggage screening. It seems the full body imaging goes quicker than the luggage screening, the difference is even greater if it's only the arch metal detector. If we split the lanes between passenger with carry-on luggage (small suitcase ...more »

Synthesis Topics

Benchmarking energy, water, waste, and greenhouse gas emissions for operational improvements

The objective of this research is to create a database of performance benchmarks for airport facilities. Airport staff need a better understanding of key operational metrics associated with building performance in order to improve efficiency, decrease operating costs, and reduce environmental impacts. A standard system which normalizes for weather, location, carbon intensity of utility supplied energy, and airport specific ...more »

Urban Air Mobility Market Study

Urban Air Mobility (UAM) is a safe and efficient system for air passenger and cargo transportation within an urban area, inclusive of small package delivery and other urban Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) services, which supports a mix of onboard/ground-piloted and increasingly autonomous operations. In recent years, UAM has developed rapidly due to advances in technology and with pilot projects underway in Dubai and planned ...more »
