iRadiant Heating (Geothermal) Prototype for Airfield Pavements

This project is proposing the construction of a prototype project as an extension of the research completed to date. It is believed that such a project could springboard the concept into reality without a significant research & development time lag. This project will include the design and construction of a snow melt pad in a small test area of concrete pavement at the Greater Binghamton Airport. This test area will incorporate radiant heat using geothermal technology. The test area will be located under and near one of the airport's jet bridges and will measure approximately 2,800 square feet. This installation will allow for a determination of the effectiveness of the concept for use in the passenger enplaning/deplaning areas near aircraft parking positions.
