Abstract : The study examines the technology and analytic techniques available to provide assistance in arriving at solutions to intra-airport transportation problems. A number of proposed transportation systems are examined and their capabilities are compared to the future requirements of major U.S. airports. Technological deficiencies of proposed systems are identified, and possible major research, development, and demonstration programs are suggested. In addition, two typical airport transportation problems are identified, and simple analytical methods are developed for their solution. The applicability of both are analytical techniques and the available technology to other (non-airport) transportation problems is discussed. (Author)
