Case studies of Successful Land Use Strategies at Airports

Synthesis of case studies showcasing what has worked well and what has not, to give examples of alignment between airport operators and land use jurisdictions. States might take different approaches from each other, and understanding these differences could be valuable.

Synthesis of Curbside Fixed Route Public Bus Access Locations to Airport Terminals

Some major U.S. airports have train service that brings airport passengers and employees to and from the airport terminal while delegating passengers and employees who use the public bus to the peripheral. Many airport passengers and employees must then use an airport shuttle system to access the public bus station or curbside airport terminal. Airports of moderate size may have public bus stations within a safe walking ...more »

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 »

Guidelines to Decentralize Curbside and Security to Alleviate Airport Congestion

Our team aims to architecturally and financially model new ways to relieve airport congestion through the expansion of the curbside, while also allowing for new programs to monetize the landside and the airside. Our team intends to develop architectural solutions for modifying airport parking garages, providing ride share lobbies and amenities, re-programming parking garages and surface lots for alternative uses, and ...more »

Rapid Setting and Durable Concrete Overlays for Airfield Pavements

Concrete overlays are a growing trend in pavement maintenance and rehabilitation. Rapid-setting concrete overlays offer the potential or reopening aprons, taxiways and runways quickly. The viability and durability of rapid setting concrete overlays over asphalt or concrete airfield pavement should be evaluated and tested in order to provide airports and consultants with suitable practice guidelines.

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.

Joint Construction for Asphalt Pavements at Airports

Joint construction of asphalt pavements is critical for pavement performance. While some airports will pave their runways in echelon, other techniques can be used to effectively ensure joint performance. This synthesis would provide a state of the practice on joint construction and provide insight for airfields to determine the best options for specifications.

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 »

Airport contributions to the investigation and interdiction of human trafficking

The objective of this research is to identify how airports can assist Federal and state law enforcement in combatting human trafficking. By supporting investigation and interdiction of human trafficking occurring in and around their facilities, airports can improve their security posture and the safety of the traveling public, as well as the diverse victims of this under-reported crime. Potential research products would ...more »
