Airports of the Future Pilot Study

Airports of the Future Pilot Study

 

The Airports of the Future Pilot Project was a multi-disciplinary collaborative research project exploring the complexity of modern airports and addressing conflicts between aviation security and the passenger experience. It involved 12 research partners Australia-wide, including airports, airlines and government agencies. The Airports of the Future Pilot Project comprised four strongly integrated research programs spanning information, process, people and technology domains.
