Synthesis of Information Related to Airport Practices. Topic S09-09. Automated Pavement Condition Survey Practices at Airports

The objective of this synthesis is to document airport practices, challenges, and success in conducting automated pavement condition data collection surveys. The study is intended to showcase successful practices, integration of automated data collection into pavement management systems, and efforts needed for reporting pavement condition.  The intended audience for this compilation of practice is airport maintenance managers and engineering staff responsible for airfield pavement maintenance management systems. Information to be described in a concise report to describe airport practices: (1) FAA requirements (2) Pavement distress types (3) Technology based data collection methodologies (4) Systems/platforms (5) Post processing practices (6)  Quality management considerations (7) Appendix materials that display helpful documents/checklists (8) Further research to close knowledge gaps Information will be collected through a literature review, a survey of state aeronautical agencies, airports (geographically and NPIAS category distributed), with selected follow up to document case examples highlighting effective practices including small airports with fewer resources.
