General Aviation Airports and Resilience: Complete Toolkits for Self-Directed Planning

The 2,455 General Aviation Airports in the U.S. provide essential services that are uniquely available through this type of airport. A Resilience Management Plan, although expensive to contract and complicated to create, may be critical to protecting the continuity of these services. This research project provides operators with the tools necessary to effectively and efficiently develop their own Resilience Management ...more »

Best Practices in Disaster/Resilience Planning for Airport/Airline Employees and Business Partners

Airport Emergency Plan requirements do not fully recognize the impact on airport employees and business partners in times of disasters or emergency events. Lessons can be learned from aviation organizations such as Jet Blue who have models for anticipating employee and business partners family needs for emergency support. Essential employees need support for their families in order to assist the airport and community ...more »

Managing an Emergency or Incident Associated with a Flight Diversion.

Flight diversions are most often gas-and-go with no deplaning of passengers. However, a diversion may happen because of an emergency on the plane or an emergency may result from the diversion, and in either case emergency response and possibly victim and family assistance may be involved. Diversions may be to an airport that does not typically handle the size or type of aircraft involved or the number of passengers all ...more »

Promoting Collaboration through Sharing Airport, Airline and Others Emergency Plans

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 »

Training and Development of Airport Emergency Managers

Training and professional development of airport emergency managers is needed to orient new airport emergency managers to the special operational, regulatory, safety, administrative, and cultural aspects of functioning at an airport. This is becoming more urgent as more and more often airports are hiring emergency managers whose experience has been outside aviation.

Airport Evacuation: Assessment of Landside Capacity Using Micro-Meso Simulation Model

Based on the severity of the crisis situation in airport it may not be enough to evacuate the passengers from the airport, but also to make a safe passage from the airport to their final or intermediate destination, which might include the passengers' residence, train stations, bus terminals, remote parking locations, and hotels. Though researches have been done on passenger evacuation in an airport setting, but little ...more »

Effective Task Saturation Interventions to Improve Airport Employee Performance

The objective of this research is to improve airport employee performance under conditions of task saturation. While task saturation is listed as a top 10 safety concern, there is little to no evidence that there are interventions in place to mitigate its impact on human performance. This research will produce an intervention (training, tool, etc.) that will be made available to airports nationwide for their use. The ...more »

SkyDome - Keeping the sky's above airports safe & secure with accurate airborne detect alerts

SkyDome offers airborne awareness in all weather conditions for enhanced collision avoidance at airports. The autonomous operating solution does not require a man-in-the-loop, although remote access for authorized personell from the cloud is available. The primary purpose is to detect and alert pilots about airborne objects in their flight path (landing and take-off) that are difficult to see with the naked eye (example: ...more »

Improving Situational Awareness, Operational Risk Management, and Safety by Fusing Data from Multiple Sensor Types

The objective of this research is to develop and test an enhanced, data-fused airport safety system at an active airport. Data from solid-state radars; multi-spectral, electro-optical sensors; automated, real-time video feeds; and ADS-B will be fused and the output will be integrated on a single, functional user display for the purposes of: • Enhancing SA and ORM for personnel other than those manning the Flight Safety ...more »
