The objective of this research is to develop guidance for airports to quantitatively identify the contributions of airfield pavement deicers to environmentally relevant characteristics of stormwater discharges, such as COD and BOD.
The objective of this research project is to develop more topic-specific in-depth training courses and materials to build upon the courses developed under the 02-61 project to create an “Airport Stormwater 201” curriculum.
Should an airport be run by the City, an Authority, in partnership with a Private party (PPP) or totally privatized (European model). What will be the best option for the airport?
While there is existing guidance on emergency planning and business continuity for airport operation, the recent storms to hit the gulf and eastern coasts have presented different challenges in airport operations. The project would pull lessons learned from airports effected by the damages of the storms as well as external factors that may not be under airport control. examples: - Loss of NAVIADS - The airport has power ...more »
Airports of all sizes have the potential to introduce more art experiences into the traveler space, but few know why they should care and how to accomplish this. Partnerships with arts associations, artists, civic cultural leaders and airports are few and poorly documented or understood. The objective of this research would be to: • Research benefits of integrating art experiences into travelers’ spaces at airports • ...more »
The objective of the research is to update the Marketing Guide for Small Airports to include business-to-business marketing and digital media thus resulting in a new model for business-to-business marketing for smaller airports.
Bring to ready attention both some common utilized apps for typical business purposes as well as specialize apps for other functional purposes.
This synthesis highlights case examples of PPPs at airports, and how risk is brought into contractual relationships and into projects themselves.
This research would summarize the best of practices through survey of airports and consultants; evaluate the effectiveness of subsurface drainage configurations by investigating field performance of airport pavements with and without drainage features; quantify the cost and benefits of including subsurface drainage by comparing any potential extension in service-life with increased construction and maintenance costs; ...more »
FAA design guidance regarding grade issues for intersecting runways leaves a fair amount of discretion to the design engineer. This topic will seek to provide additional guidance regarding gradient requirements and best practices.
Research and develop a universal Aviation Symbol Signs System for the airport/travel sector that is comprehensive, rigorously tested, and industry accepted, as well as provide guidelines for their best use in airports. The focus will be on pedestrian wayfinding and safety related symbols. Process should be based on a global approach with U.S. airport application. The objective is to produce an aviation symbol library ...more »
Investigate if additional data can be collected by these new survey techniques: Develop preferred practices on how to use emerging mobile technologies to collect passenger level of service information in a minimally invasive manner and investigate if new techniques improve (or impede) passenger response rates. Other topics that could be covered include: using ethnographic data collection techniques to understand passenger ...more »
