Guidance on holisitic master planning that goes beyond just future
facility and infrastructure that includes the sub categories such as IT,
Operations, Security and Maintenance as examples. It would also provide guidance on how to develop a "plan" for the ancillary operating areas and how important components may be rolled into a true master plan
A synthesis that would allow a cross the board runway length determination analysis.
Develop a guidebook for use by airport owners, airlines, third party developers, consultants, and contractors regarding the current landscape of airport project delivery systems and their suitability for various types of projects and airport ownership models.
This Guidebook would detail what it takes to stand up a full IT Security
and Compliance program at an airport.
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.
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.
Develop a guide for architects, planners and airport operators on planning and designing new low cost carrier (LCC) terminal or converting existing ones to better serve low cost carriers. Supplement existing terminal planning resources and guidelines while identifying key differences between LCC and full service terminals.
Autonomous Ground Vehicles (AGVs) are coming... This project would develop a primer on the opportunities offered and the feasibility of widely implementing Autonomous Ground Vehicles (AGVs) at the airport - landside and airside.
