Establish if and how recycled (pyrolyzed) carbon fibers can be used in place of virgin carbon fibers for achieving comparable performance at lower material costs.
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.
Artificial Intelligence is a powerful system that can automatically predict runway safety issues and produce optimal decisions to solve the problem in real time. The purpose of this project is to develop a framework for an AI system and provide guidelines for integrating an AI system to airports in order to improve runway safety.
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.

Develop practical guidance for airports regarding training and managing the performance of individuals with airside driving privileges. This guidance should be applicable to movement area and non-movement area drivers.
Develop guidance to assist airports in understanding the most common sources of FOD and effective solutions to managing the associated risk of this hazard.
Research and develop guidance around involving ramp towers in a local airport's SMS. Explore options for the airport's role in safety oversight given that ramp towers can involve several organizations operating under separate safety management approaches.
Conduct research on options airports can consider when deciding on an organizational structure for their personnel who will manage airport safety processes. The research should provide recommended structures for airports of all sizes and complexities.
Develop practical guidance on how airports of different sizes and complexities can identify hazards that can lead to runway incursions and recommend actions involving infrastructure changes, prevention systems and safety promotion initiatives that can be adopted.
