Implementation of Project Management Offices (PMO) in US Airports

Project Management Offices (PMOs) are a well-established concept in Project Management literature and they are widespread across much of the private and public sectors. However, the establishment of PMOs (particularly, enterprise PMOs or EPMOs) at US airports – many of which are local government entities – have traditionally lagged behind their contemporaries. Although some PMOs currently exist at US airports, they are... more »

Infrastructure condition assessment using mobile devices

Current methods of assessing the condition of airport pavement and infrastructure typically require restricting access or use, closing, and/or using expensive assessment methods or tools. Technology integrated into most mobile phones (gyroscopes, accelerometers, cameras, etc.) can be used to automatically collect and wirelessly transmit infrastructure-related data to a central database providing real-time tracking of... more »

Airport Microgrid Solution Standard Framework

Development of a microgrid standard framework (Technical, Financial, Regulatory, Permitting) solution which can apply to all airports across the country. Due to the complexity of the airports' operation and numbers of stakeholders and decision-makers, this comprehensive solution has not been developed.

Framework and Requirements for Using Artificial Intelligence to Improve Airport Runway SafetyArtificial Intelligence is

Artificial Intelligence is a powerful system that can automatically predict runway safety issues and produce optimal decisions to solve the problem in real time. The purpose of this project is to develop a framework for an AI system and provide guidelines for integrating an AI system to airports in order to improve runway safety.

Public & consortium blockchain mechanisms are needed to integrate, secure and monetize the data produced by IoT devices

Blockchain technology (e.g., open source Enterprise Ethereum) can be used as a vendor neutral integration layer to secure IoT devices to prevent malicious attacks, enable myriad IoT devices installed at the airports to work together in concert to unlock new value creation between different parties, and reward IoT operators for the value produced by data.

Using NEXRAD weather surveillance network to forecast movements of migratory birds impacting safety at US airports

More than 14,000 wildlife strikes were reported to the Federal Aviation Administration in 2017. Globally, wildlife strikes have killed more than 287 people and destroyed over 263 aircraft from 1988 through November 2018 (Dolbeer and Begier. 2019). To warn pilots of potential wildlife hazards, airports often include generic language in the Automated Terminal Information System (ATIS) or Notices to Airmen (NOTAM) that does... more »

Automated Assistance in the Airports for Special Needs Passengers(3A-SNP)-The use of Indoor Unmanned Vehicles - IUA

Some passengers with special needs are loosing autonomy by using the actual costly and somehow inefficient manual service for reduced mobility passengers. The idea novelty is to suggest an automated solution using either existing airport means or advanced technlogy solutions for providing such a service. The architectural concept of the system is scallable in order to easilly implement any service for any specific need.... more »
