A Forum on Blockchain Technology and Airports

  Project Data
Funds: $120,000
Staff Responsibility: Theresia H. Schatz
Fiscal Year: 2019

This project has been tentatively selected and a project statement (request for proposals) is expected to be available on this world wide web site. The problem statement below will be the starting point for a panel of experts to develop the project statement.

Airports have been hearing about blockchain and have questions about its applicability to their operations. Examples of airport information systems that may leverage blockchain technology include flight information and airport resource management, baggage handling and tracking, airport inspections, and reporting of both landing fees and concession point of sale activity.
 
The objective of this research is to convene a NASEM workshop to present and discuss blockchain technology and describe potential use cases in the airport environment.
