Fiscal Year: 2024

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

The shortage of available personnel to fully staff all the open roles within an airport environment is one of the primary concerns expressed by airports across the country. The departure and retirement of workers in the industry during the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly reduced the number of skilled and knowledgeable workers. Although much automation exists within the airport environment, manual processes across the entire ecosystem still exist that could be automated or supplemented with technology to increase operational efficiency.

The objective of this research is to identify key areas of automation that can serve to improve airport operational efficiency.
