Upcoming Work

In 2021, these are some of the key topic areas identified for future work and deemed important to airfield reliability, efficiency, and safety with the overarching goal to keep America moving forward. These research areas are revisited and prioritized periodically by the Program Coordination Group of the AAPTP.  As projects move up in prioritization, a technical panel is assigned, a request for proposal (RFP) developed, and a subsequent project is initiated.
