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 »

Develop Modification Method for Runways Performance

In this case study we consider kinetic energy model to modify calculations of all types of required distances and included type of airfield pavement, four cases of aircraft loads on the runway during landing and take-off operations, interaction model formulation and resistance of rolling wheels. Special attention paid to the foreign structures and devices incorporated into the pavement structural layers. All devices and ...more »

Real Time Airside Infrastructure Maintenance Evaluation and Hazard Detection

Airside infrastructure maintenance requirements are typically defined using passive sensors that detect surface phenomena only, or using devices that require slow or stationary equipment which affect capacity & delay and may even require NOTAM closures for in-depth evaluations. A need exists to streamline the evaluation process to provide real time input to aircraft operations and progressive infrastructure maintenance ...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.

A Primer and Guidebook on Airport Digital Transformation and Assessment of Your Organization's Readiness

The development of a Primer and Guidebook to assist Airport's with assessing their readiness for digital transformation. The results of this research would support Airport's to understand exactly where they are on the transformation continuum and provide guidance and direction on the next steps of the journey.

Animals at Airports

There are all kinds of animals coming through airports today: service animals, comfort animals, security animals, and pets, not to mention farm animals, zoo animals, circus animals, primates, uninvited wild animals ("pests"), and marine life. How should airports set up protocols, physical spaces, and customer service messaging to coordinate and manage as today's Noah's Arcs of air travel?

The New Paradigm of Airport Terminal Traffic

As autonomous vehicles and their services propagate through an airport terminal, how will this disrupt the already crowded flow of terminal traffic. Research into the best way to regulate and direct these technologies is needed for practitioners to decide the best hierarchy of flow. These patterns of trafic should maximize safety and be based on the needs of the specific vehicles and services introduced.

Airport best practices to minimize catalytic oxidation of carbon brakes

To support the air transport industry's holistic effort to reduce maintenance costs and safety risks, research is needed to identify airport best practices that could reduce the influence of airfield pavement deicing on accelerated structural deterioration of aircraft carbon brakes and provide guidance to airports on selection and application of these best practices.
