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.
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 main objectives of this research project are providing to the U.S. airports and their stakeholders (airlines, ATCT, ground handling service providers, etc.) the following: - Overview of A-CDM operations management, - Benefits of A-CDM operations management for the community of the stakeholders of the airport operations, - Guidance for developing an A-CDM operations management organization, the related tools, and CDM-friendly ...more »
Develop guidelines for the design of runway infrastructure to meet the unique needs of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The output of the research could be a guidebook to help practitioners design aviation facilities dedicated to safely and efficiently meet the operational requirements of UAVs of various sizes and configurations.
The main objectives of this idea are providing the U.S. airport industry and their stakeholders (airlines, ATO, ground handling service providers, etc.) with the following: - Overview of the green taxiing solutions and their typical concepts of operations, - Impact of these systems on airport operations, planning and design. The research project includes producing or collecting: - An inventory of the existing and prospective ...more »
The objective is to determine best practices for the safe, cost-effective, and environmentally acceptable removal of existing markings and application of temporary markings on aviation pavement. Behind the idea, the output should address the following questions: • How much removal is adequate to prevent confusion in the cockpit? • How much tolerance is there for altering the pavement surface? • Are there mechanical ...more »
The objectives of this research project are to: • Create an electronic resources library – preferably a website. This searchable electronic library should provide an inventory of available publications including the abstracts and index of ACRP research documents and non-ACRP research documents related to airside planning, design and operations. • Recommend a process for keeping the website up-to-date. • Identify which ...more »
