ACRP Virtual BoothProduct not yet rated Contains 1 Component(s)
Welcome to the ACRP Virtual Exhibit Booth.
Each year, ACRP receives funding from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), ACRP's program sponsor. With this budget, ACRP funds research projects and activities to help airports surmount real-world challenges and problems.
ACRP's governing board, the ACRP Oversight Committee (AOC), meets annually to identify the highest priority projects, define project funding levels, and articulate expected research products. It ensures that each approved project is appropriate, relevant, and responsive to airports’ needs. In addition, ACRP engages airport professionals, state and local government officials, equipment and service suppliers, other airport users, and research organizations so that their perspectives are represented during the research selection process.
Once the AOC releases its approved list of projects, ACRP convenes project panels to steer the development of RFPs, oversee the subsequent competitive selection of research contractors, and manage and approve the final research products.

Associated Asphalt Partners, LLC Virtual BoothProduct not yet rated Contains 1 Component(s)
Welcome to the Associated Asphalt Partners, LLC Virtual Exhibit Booth...
Associated Asphalt is a full-service asphalt supplier to the asphalt paving industry with an extensive product line. Founded in 1948 and headquartered in Roanoke, VA, Associated Asphalt is the largest asphalt supplier in the eastern United States with 34 asphalt terminals. Associated Asphalt has a complete line of specialty asphalt products, including the StellarFlex® line of polymer-modified asphalts, the FlexGard® high performance overlay mix system, J-Band® - a Void Reducing Asphalt Membrane (VRAM) for longitudinal joints, and ready-to-use warm mix asphalt binders. StellarFlex® polymer-modified binders are specifically formulated to solve challenging pavement applications – StellarFlex® SP for heavy-duty pavements, StellarFlex® BD for bridge deck pavements, StellarFlex® CR for mitigating reflective cracking, and StellarFlex FR® for fuel resistant asphalt pavements.
StellarFlex FR® is a highly polymer-modified asphalt formulated to resist damage from jet fuel spills and de-icing chemicals when used in an FAA P-404 mix. . The polymer modification not only provides fuel resistance, it also provides excellent resistance to rutting and cracking, which results in improved durability and increased pavement life. StellarFlex FR® meets all requirements for the FAA “P-404 Fuel Resistant Asphalt Mix” specification. The product was first placed in 2002 on a taxiway at LaGuardia Airport, and has been used on airfield pavements at both large commercial and general aviation airports across the United States over the past eighteen years. P-404 mixes containing StellarFlex FR® binder have demonstrated outstanding durability and long life in all applications to date.

ACC Lunch and Learn On-Demand Webinar - Development and Performance History of the FAA P-404 Fuel-Resistant Asphalt Mix Specification
This complimentary ACC on-demand Lunch & Learn webinar - generously sponsored by Associated Asphalt Pavement, LLC - will provide an overview of the development of the FAA P-404 Fuel-Resistant Mix specification. Jet fuel, hydraulic oil and de-icing chemicals cause damage to asphalt pavement on airfields. Coal tar sealers have been used to protect airfield pavements from fuel damage, but they are carcinogenic.
Associated Asphalt developed an environmentally friendly, highly polymer-modified asphalt binder that makes the asphalt pavement resistant to fuel and oil spills and eliminates the need for hazardous sealers. This presentation will document the history of use of fuel-resistant binder beginning at La Guardia Airport in 2002. It will describe the development of a generic fuel-resistant mix specification that is a modified version of the P-401 specification. The P-401 mix specification was modified to optimize the properties of a highly-polymer modified liquid asphalt and produce a mix that is highly resistant to rutting and cracking, as well as resistant to damage from jet fuel, hydraulic oil and de-icing chemicals. The result is a fuel-resistant mix that will last significantly longer than a P-401 mix.
This specification was first used at Logan Airport in 2004. The FAA adopted the Logan Airport fuel-resistant mix specification in 2014, after evaluating the performance over a ten-year period. This program will include extensive laboratory testing documenting the superiority of the P-404 mix and a field performance history dating back to 2002. The webinar will provide participants the knowledge necessary to select P-404 mix for appropriate airfield pavement applications.
At the end of this ACC on-demand Lunch & Learn webinar, participants will be able to:
• Recognize the dangers associated with the use of coal tar sealers.
• Compare P-401 mix design criteria with P-404 mix design criteria.
• Assess the mix performance testing data of P-404 mixes.
• Apply the information presented to correctly specify P-404 pavements.

Jet Blast Deflectors (JBDs)
BDI deflectors are constructed of heavy-duty, hot-dip galvanized steel. All designs are modular and can easily be relocated or reconfigured. BDI has more than 30 standard jet blast deflector models and offers custom-made solutions. All BDI deflectors are manufactured to the highest standards, and each installation is supervised by a highly trained BDI field technician. BDI deflectors are designed and prefabricated for efficient installation with minimal tools and labor.
• Taxi Duty
Utilized to protect ground support, roadways, parking areas, buildings and people from jet blast produced by aircraft using taxiways and aprons. These models, which are available in curved and vertical configurations, are designed to withstand taxi and breakaway power from all types of aircraft.
• Full Power Run-ups
These models are typically used in maintenance areas where high power engine run-ups are regularly performed. They are also used at runway ends. These deflectors can withstand jet thrust in excess of 115,000 pounds, which is currently the maximum produced by a commercial jet engine (i.e. the GE90-115B used on B777 aircraft variants)
BDI's reliable fiberglass deflectors are specifically designed for use at runway ends in front of instrument landing systems. The nonferrous, fiberglass reinforced plastic deflector does not interfere with instrument approach systems and provides exceptional jet blast protection. The curved aerodynamic design was adapted from BDI's steel series, which has more than 60 years of proven success.
BDI’s range of temporary and moveable deflectors provides contractors and airports with flexibility and improved safety in airside construction environments. Various heights and shapes are available to suit any project requirement. A moveable deflector avoids the need for permanent civil work.
Ground Run-up Enclosures (GREs)
We offer ground run-up enclosure (GRE) facilities that use patented components, proven designs and a spotless track record of successful installations. BDI’s philosophy is to balance project requirements with practical solutions. The combination of the aerodynamically advanced Stabile Flow™ design with the effectiveness of Noise Blotter™ acoustic panels provide an aerodynamically efficient GRE with very high usability and outstanding noise reduction. BDI can design and build ground run-up enclosures for any aircraft mix including commercial, general aviation and defense. BDI utilizes the latest aerodynamic, acoustical and structural software packages, combined with scale modeling and field measurements, to ensure project requirements are met.
Our 3-sided GRE design starts with sloped entry walls with a rolled top to improve airflow into the facility and eliminate vortex formation, due to separation, at the front and top of the side walls.
Our 4-sided GRE design uses large, vented front gates with sufficient open area to supply the necessary air into the facility. The side walls of our GRE facilities use large, acoustically treated vents to provide engine entrainment air and to improve usability in crosswind conditions.
End Around Taxiway Visual Screens (EAT)
BDI visual screens are designed to be durable, resistant to weather, frangible, and resistant to wind load. All connections, frame structure, panels and foundations are designed to break away from the structure in the event an aircraft strikes the visual screen. End-Around Taxiway (EAT) Visual Screens are placed at the end of a runway and are designed to enable pilots to better discern when an aircraft is crossing the active runway versus operating on an end-around taxiway. The diagonal red and white striping on the front provides a surface that is visible from a distance and easily discernable from another aircraft.
Since the dawn of the jet age, BDI has provided solutions for defense applications. BDI’s first major defense project was to equip all Strategic Air Command (SAC) bases with Lynnco Type E deflectors and, since then, thousands of BDI deflectors have been installed at defense facilities worldwide. Models are available for power check pads, aprons and parking positions. BDI’s deflector material can be rapidly dispatched via air or sea shipment to locations around the globe in easily handled bundles. Designs comply with USAF, NAVFAC, USACE, and NATO requirements.

Integrated Defense and Security Solutions (IDSS) Virtual BoothProduct not yet rated Contains 1 Component(s)
Welcome to the Integrated Defense and Security Solutions (IDSS) Virtual Exhibit Booth.
Integrated Defense and Security Solutions (IDSS) is a security technology manufacturer based in Boxborough, Massachusetts to address current and future threats to aviation and checkpoints. Our DETECT™ 1000 Computed tomography-based x-ray systems provides an excellent platform to address both current and future threats. IDSS currently has the DETECT™ 1000 checkpoint system which is currently being deployed, with additional systems in development for hold baggage and cargo applications. In a post pandemic environment, the use of CT technology at checkpoints minimizes the handling of bags and articles through the ability to conduct virtual screening and searches of bags and articles. The implementation of CT technology offers enhanced security for explosives detection and the development of Artificial Intelligence algorithms for the detection of Prohibited Items and Narcotics continue to enhance the capability of the CT systems for years to come in a variety of applications. The key features of the DETECT™ 1000 with its high-resolution images and ability to address current and future needs yield the most effective long-term CT based platform.
Integrated Defense and Security Solutions (IDSS) was founded in 2012 and is focused on the development, production, deployment and support of advanced Computer Tomography (CT) based security solutions. IDSS is headquartered with development and production facilities in Boxborough, MA.
IDSS customers include airports, the TSA, airlines and government agencies requiring advanced technology for automated explosive and contraband detection. We currently are deploying our DETECT™ 1000 Checkpoint System which is both TSA and ECAC C3 Certified. IDSS is also developing additional security systems for Hold Baggage, Air Cargo screening and continued advancements in algorithm development for explosives, prohibitive items and narcotics detection. IDSS also won the US DHS Opioid Detection Challenge through applying the DETECT™ 1000 imaging system with Artificial Intelligence driven algorithms to provide the best system capability and maturity to the problem of narcotics detection in parcels for use in not only in postal rooms but also in airport and customs environments.
Integrated Defense and Security Solutions (IDSS) was founded in 2012 specifically to develop high performance, next generation scanners to transform threat detection and security capabilities world-wide. Our systems are solutions that automate and optimize security and operations through Computed tomography-based x-ray systems which allow for the virtual searches of items being scanned. The DETECTTM 1000 was developed for high security checkpoints with aviation, narcotics and infrastructure applications. Additional systems are being developed for applications in hold baggage and cargo.
The DETECTTM 1000 generates high resolution three-dimensional images of the item while analyzing its contents with dual-energy volumetric material measurement techniques. The superior imaging performance of the DETECTTM 1000 combined with our team’s extensive experience in developing threat detection algorithms allowed us to exceed detection requirements while maintaining a low false-alarm rate.
The DETECTTM 1000 high resolution images allow for optimum assessment by the algorithms and the operators, in addition to supporting the effective segmentation of objects and accurate measurements of those objects. The lower the resolution the less accurate the measurements. Performance should not rely on Material Density alone for identifying whether an object is a threat and have at least one other technology to facilitate more accurate measurements. The DICOS-2 image standard provides for an open platform for the bag images which allows for ease of working with 3rd party providers to ensure the optimum performance for our customers.
The ability to incorporate orthogonal discriminators such as dual energy allows an automated detection system to optimize performance for detection and low false alarms.
The DETECTTM 1000 has a throughput capability of greater than 500 bags per hour while maintaining radiation safety limits (continuous operation excluding any operator review) to support operational needs. The ability to meet throughput needs while meeting radiation safety requirements is important for the safety of both the operators and passengers without additional tunnel length or increasing the spacing between parcels. The throughput combined with the low false alarm rates allows for optimum operation performance. The DETECTTM 1000 can be configured in various forms including stand alone for those sites with limited space, integrated with our automated diverter for those sites that need to automate the search station and a complete integration with an automated tray return system for those sites without space limitations.
The DETECTTM 1000 has passed both the TSA cabin baggage certification and ECAC C3 cabin baggage test.
Computed Tomography x-ray technology is also being applied to non-intrusive detection of narcotics in stream of commerce mail. In the US DHS Opioid Detection Challenge, IDSS’s CT team took first place in exceeding requirements for non-intrusive detection and false alarm performance. The DETECTTM 1000 imaging system with Artificial Intelligence driven algorithms provided the best system capability and maturity to apply to the problem of scanning parcels for drugs. IDSS anticipates further developing this capability for use in not only in postal rooms but also in airport and customs environments.
Computed tomography-based x-ray systems provide an excellent platform to address both current and future threats. IDSS currently has the DETECTTM 1000 checkpoint system which is currently being deployed, with additional systems in development for hold baggage and cargo applications. In a post pandemic environment, the use of CT technology at checkpoints minimizes the handling of bags and articles through the ability to conduct virtual screening and searches of bags and article. The implementation of CT technology offers enhanced security for explosives detection and the development of Artificial Intelligence algorithms for the detection of Prohibited Items and Narcotics continue to enhance the capability of the CT systems for years to come in a variety of applications.
