Airports, airlines and their emergency response partners can develop a culture of interagency coordination that promotes the regular sharing of airline, airport, and other emergency response plans and strategies. This can provide an opportunity for both airline and support staff and the airports to be familiar with individual corporate emergency response and family assistance plans in the event there is the need for a ...more »
This is a proposal for a two-day ACRP Insight Event on the Future of Aviation at the Beckman Center. The findings from this event would be used to help develop an ACRP future of aviation research roadmap (please see below for more details). The proposed location was selected due to its closer proximity to key aviation and technology companies and thought leaders who may be interested in planning and/or participating in ...more »
Conduct research to update the state-of-the-science regarding the feasibility of reducing or eliminating noise in communities from aircraft departures, specifically behind the start of takeoff roll, with active noise reduction technology.
Air travel is facing increasing threats to operations and facilities from climate changes, but there is not clear guidance on how airports should prepare. This study would examine the potential impacts and offer guidance on how best to defend against these threats.
There are numerous processes by which state aviation grant programs are administered and managed. This project would summarize various state aviation grant program policies, procedures, and processes used across the country.
There has been much research conducted on developing regional and state
system plans but none on implementing them, tracking/impacting system
performance measures, conducting follow-on studies to support system
plan implementation, etc.
Convert an already-developed tool for preparing NIMS/ICS compliant airport emergency plans (AEPs) to a web-based product and to host and maintain the tool/website for 3 years.
There is a potentially a gap between airport capacity (e.g., runways, gates) and the increased capacity brought about by the satellite-based, digital infrastructure being implemented. Identifying the gaps between these two capacities and solutions to fill them will help decision makers be more effective in making wise investment decisions so that future airport and ANSP initiatives to increase capacity are more cost-effective ...more »
A multilateral instrument allowing up to and including the 7th freedom traffic right for all-cargo services would provide air carriers the flexibility to develop more profitable routes that serve a larger variety of airports. This could provide significant investment opportunities for airports and enable them to better position themselves for integration into the global supply chain.
The Synthesis project would review and summarize the aviation system performance measures that have been adopted as part of national, state and regional airport system plans.
A synthesis that would allow a cross the board runway length determination analysis.
Since the cost of adding curbside is often considerable, identifying tips for more effective use of current facilities will help postpone the need for additional infrastructure; however, this must be balanced with a positive customer experience.
