The proposed synthesis aims to address the experiences of airport operators with agricultural operations that take place within the airport's compound.
The proposed work will be a synthesis of current and previous experiences of airports that have been utilized the federal grants to reduce the emissions levels at their respective areas.
This study will review revenues and pricing strategies of airport operated parking facilities for 380 primary airports and 126 non-primary (commercial services) airports in the current National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS).
Passenger load factors are determined and published by the airlines as the RPK's divided by the ASK's, but what goes into the denominator and numerator and how could they be impacted.
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 »
Effects of and opportunities for public–private partnership funding of social programs
Guidance for general aviation airports completing socioeconomic impact studies.
Examination of airports that are tracking and reporting sustainability metrics and whether their insurance rates, insurance payouts, or options for access to capital are different from those of airports that do not track and report these metrics
Stipends are used in competitive bids to encourage bidders to submit their best ideas in a procurement. Better understanding of the use and value of stipends would be useful to airport management, boards and policymakers to determine if compensating losing bidders for their intellectual property would advance practice and improve design and project delivery.
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 »
Determine uniform certification standards in DBE/ACDEBE certification programs between airports and other local entities to ensure a smooth process and better understanding of the requirements.
Airport Emergency Plan requirements do not fully recognize the impact on airport employees and business partners in times of disasters or emergency events. Lessons can be learned from aviation organizations such as Jet Blue who have models for anticipating employee and business partners family needs for emergency support. Essential employees need support for their families in order to assist the airport and community... more »
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 »
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.
Baggage Handling Systems (BHS) are critical pieces of infrastructure at every airport. They are large, complex, and costly to operate, and their lack of performance can have massive impacts on airport, airlines, and passengers. The research aims to provide airport stakeholders with a set of tools to make the best, transparent decisions regarding their BHS from a total cost of ownership perspective. Expanding on current... more »
