Develop a practical guidebook addressing safe pavement maintenance and repair for airside areas involving routine, non-routine and emergency situations.
Develop guidance to identify and design the necessary features of an efficient, sustainable, comprehensive, safe maintenance facility that is customized to satisfy the needs of a given airport.
Conduct research into cost effective strategies for periodic monitoring of airspace surfaces such as TERPS 20:1 surfaces to ensure they remain clear of obstructions. Particularly at smaller rural airports that may not have staff, zoning, or significant infrastructure that would otherwise make these issues easier to manage.
Review the tools and practices currently being used to conduct airfield pavement conditions.
This synthesis would analyze the current state, feasibility, and interest of airports and the FAA to use recycled concrete aggregates as constituents in a concrete mix design of new airfield rigid concrete pavements.
Create, collect, and analyze data from an Airfield Electrical Infrastructure Survey that documents product types, installation methods and maintenance methods of airfield electrical equipment.
