Perimeter Security Control and Incident Response

Guidebook on measures to safeguard airport users, staff and facilities by effectively controlling access to airport property through surveillance of the perimeter fencing and by rapid and effective responses to unauthorized penetrations. While this examination of modern security systems would focus on anti-terrorist and anti-criminal activity it should also consider the applications of such systems to wildlife control ...more »

Airport Baggage Handling System Guide

To develop a comprehensive resource on Baggage Handling System (BHS) planning and design aimed at assisting airport planners, manufacturers and airport operators. The report will help planners and architects to design new BHS, expand or modify existing systems and provide improved operation and maintenance. The goal of the report should be to supplement existing design criteria including publications from TSA, IATA and ...more »

Airport Incubators

How can airports set up incubators unit to create a space for innovators to solve airport problems based on challenges placed on them from different departments? Then, using the resulting solution, partner (in terms of equity) with the innovators, help them form companies that the airport would be. Partner on in terms of the laboratory for the solutions, then market to other airports.

Runway Incursion Risk Modelling

Develop tools for evaluating the risk of runway incursions based on airport-specific factors such as airfield configuration, weather, aircraft operations, aircraft characteristics, and air traffic management practices. This project would involve data collection from historical runway incursion event data for storage in a relational database. These events would be classified by type following FAA and international taxonomy. ...more »

Safety Risk Assessment Case Studies

Examine airport planning, design and construction projects and their outcomes considering the utilization of a Safety Risk Assessment (SRA) process. The SRA process, whether the result of FAA guidance or as part of an airport Safety Management System, is intended to identify and resolve important safety risk consequences early in the project formulation process. The project would identify specific benefits for using ...more »

Urban Air Mobility Market Study

Urban Air Mobility (UAM) is a safe and efficient system for air passenger and cargo transportation within an urban area, inclusive of small package delivery and other urban Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) services, which supports a mix of onboard/ground-piloted and increasingly autonomous operations. In recent years, UAM has developed rapidly due to advances in technology and with pilot projects underway in Dubai and planned ...more »

Guidebook for Airports to Enhance/Support FAA Trajectory Based Operations (TBO)

The FAA’s “Vision for Trajectory Based Operations”, Version 2.0 dated September 2017, states that TBO will leverage NextGen improvements to make flight operations more efficient and predictable: “TBO in 2025 depends upon use of improved data sets and greater collaboration between the FAA and its customers to enable better traffic planning and scheduling decisions. Improved data sets reflect access to new data elements, ...more »

Lessons learned from the recent hurricanes

While there is existing guidance on emergency planning and business continuity for airport operation, the recent storms to hit the gulf and eastern coasts have presented different challenges in airport operations. The project would pull lessons learned from airports effected by the damages of the storms as well as external factors that may not be under airport control. examples: - Loss of NAVIADS - The airport has power ...more »
