This project would plan, deploy and document an airside application of AGVT at an airport. The proposed project may be AGVT mowing, AGVT perimeter security, AGVT FOD detection, or other application assessed in ACRP 03-48.
The objective of this research is to develop a guidebook to help airport practitioners identify and quantify benefits, costs and the economic impact of business diversity programs.
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.
COVID-19 has caused an unprecedented drop in commercial aviation traffic. This synthesis could explore issues raised by COVID-19 and how the aviation industry is responding to COVID-19 and the recovery of air travel in the future.
A. Investigate how the March 13, 2020 DHS Notice of Arrival Restrictions (NAR) affected the designated arrival airports.
B. Determine COVID-19 health screenings protocols and self-quarantine recommendations at each airport for returning travelers.

Should an airport be run by the City, an Authority, in partnership with a Private party (PPP) or totally privatized (European model). What will be the best option for the airport?
Convert an already-developed tool for preparing NIMS/ICS compliant airport emergency plans (AEPs) to a web-based product and to host and maintain the tool/website for 3 years.
The goal of this research idea is to develop a predictive model of jet blast exposure based on local parameters (taxiway slope, operating conditions, aircraft operator practices, temperature, types of aircraft, etc.). This model will be based on jet blast measurements performed at various airports of different size and traffic in the U.S.
The goal of this research is to provide airports with best practices for addressing the homeless at airports.
