ACRP Insight Event - Future of Aviation

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 »

The Emerging Threat of PFOS Contamination at Airports

Airports have for decades been managing and remediating contamination of soil and groundwater resulting from past practices. However, within the past two years airports have been surprised by a previously unrecognized environmental threat from a family of compounds found in firefighting foam known as perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS). A synthesis study to provide necessary education on the subject is proposed. It is ...more »

Guidance on Holistic Airport Master Planning

Guidance on holisitic master planning that goes beyond just future

facility and infrastructure that includes the sub categories such as IT,

Operations, Security and Maintenance as examples. It would also provide guidance on how to develop a "plan" for the ancillary operating areas and how important components may be rolled into a true master plan

Airport Best Practices in Sustainability

By understanding what other airports are doing in the very wide subject area of sustainability, it may spur airports to try different means of conserving energy, recycling materials, or otherwise improving its sustainability practices. By looking not only at the practices, but the results, the challenges to implementation, and the costs of implementation, airports will be provided with guidance to improve their practices ...more »

Access for Active Modes

Encouragement of non automobile use to/from and within the airport is important to minimizing traffic and enhancing air quality. While many airports are located within walking distance of airport office parks and employee housing, many airports cannot be accessed by pedestrians and bicyclists. The advent of new technologies like e-scooters and e-bikes is proving very popular in cities and would seem to extend threshold ...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 »
