faa mission statement
"Our continuing mission is to provide the
aerospace system in the world"
airfield saftey concerns
Any occurrence at an aerodrome involving the incorrect presence of an aircraft, vehicle or person on the protected area of a surface designated for the landing and take off of aircraft.
A surface incident is an unauthorized or unapproved movement within the designated movement area (excluding runway incursions) or an occurrence in that same area associated with the operation of an aircraft that affects or could affect the safety of flight.
RUNWAY INCURSIONs 2010-2015
May require additional personnel in ATCT
Will require slow implementation as it disturbs entire airfield
Increased safety by minimizing incursion probabilities
Providing clear travel path through FAA determined “Hot Spots”
Potential eliminating possibilities of incursion fines ($500-10,000)
Minimizing human error
Improves airfield operations
Easily integrated into existing infrastructure yet independent from other systems
Secondary lighting system
Predetermined Airfield Travel Hierarchy System
Color coded travel path for every aircraft
Conflict detection software
EFFICIENCY ON THE AIRFIELD
PATHS CONCERNS AND DIFFICULTIES
YOUNG PROFESSIONALS INNOVATION COMPETITION 2015
Depends on many variables such as:
Integration into existing system
Level of integration
Use case at SWF
Civil ROM Cost Estimate: $500,000
Electrical ROM Cost Estimate: $750,000
Total Est. Cost : $1.25M
FAA involvement and funding
Would be an FAA initiative similar to RWSL
Would be designed and built with same FAA criteria required for other airfield lighting system
Request for Proposal
Selecting capable manufacturers for producing prototype
Selecting different airfields around the nation to implement prototype
Train air traffic controllers on PATHS
Development of an Automated PATHS
Development of software with capabilities to allow for automatic rotating
R/W Centerline Light
To conclude the presentation we have developed a few models:
Levels are read from 30' or "cockpit vantage"
Light from strips stays localized to not overpower any existing systems
Edge Stripe (TYP)
PCC (PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE)
Use of common construction techniques
Compatible with typical pavement types both new and existing
Easily removed and replaced in sections
Cut pavement trench (except for new concrete)
Install PATHS track
Install PATHS LED strip
Seal and repair pavement as necessary
airfield pavement types
RACK MOUNTED CCRs
