Periodic Report on Transformative Technology at Airports

When examining current technology trends in aviation, there are many innovative initiatives underway related to improving aviation through technology. In January 2018, Future Travel Experience (FTE) identified ten new and emerging technologies as having the potential to improve customer service and enhance operational efficiency on the ground and in-flight. FTE highlighted technologies that may play an important role in reshaping the air transport industry in the future. The objective of this research is to prepare a periodic report summarizing transformative technology news, innovation, and opportunities for the airport industry. This report would itemize those new technologies developed and implemented at airports over a period between reports; assess the impact of those technologies at airports; then develop and summarize suggested courses of action that airports can use to prepare for the deployment and/or implementation of the subject technology.
