The objective of this applied project is to demonstrate the cost
effective utility and implementation of advanced surveillance, sensing,
or sequencing systems for terminal air traffic services.
Establish if and how recycled (pyrolyzed) carbon fibers can be used in place of virgin carbon fibers for achieving comparable performance at lower material costs.
Determine if airport operations can be accurately counted using ADS-B data.
Identify how AI could impact staffing needs and skill sets.
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
Update ACRP Report 40: Airport Curbside and Terminal Area Roadway Operations to reflect latest practice and focus on curbside/roadway management..
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 multilateral instrument granting, among other rights, 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.
Examine the degree to which airline cost at airports influence airline decisions.
