  • Associated Asphalt Partners, LLC Virtual Booth

    Product 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.

    Associated Asphalt distinguishes itself from typical asphalt suppliers with experienced technical and marketing groups that have developed specialty products such as StellarFlex® FR and provides field support to ensure successful installation.

    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.  

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    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)

    Fiberglass
    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.

    Portable/Moveable
    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.

    3-Sided
    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.

    4-Sided
    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.


    Defense 

    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 Booth

    Product not yet rated Contains 1 Component(s)

    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. 

     

    image

    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. 

    image

    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.

    This 90-minute ACC on-demand webinar will provide an overview on the key technical aspects for developing construction safety and phasing plans (CSPP). It will also cover best practices, lessons learned, and common pitfalls that should be considered when preparing the CSPP.

    This ACC on-demand webinar will provide an overview on the key technical aspects for developing construction safety and phasing plans (CSPP). It will also cover best practices, lessons learned, and common pitfalls that should be considered when preparing the CSPP. Examples from real projects will be shared during the webinar. A CSPP must be developed for each on-airfield construction project funded by the Airport Improvement Program (AIP) or located on an airport certificated under Part 139. For on-airfield construction projects at Part 139 airports funded without AIP funds, the preparation of a CSPP represents an acceptable method the certificate holder may use to meet Part 139 requirements during airfield construction activity. Airports are complex environments, and procedures and conditions associated with construction activities often affect aircraft operations and can jeopardize operational safety. Safety considerations are paramount and may make operational impacts unavoidable. However, careful planning, scheduling, and coordination of construction activities can minimize disruption of normal aircraft operations and avoid situations that compromise the airport’s operational safety. 

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    At the end of this ACC on-demand webinar, participants will be able to:
    • Interpret FAA Advisory Circular 150/5370-2G – Operational Safety on Airports During Construction.

  • ACC Planning Airports for Travelers with Disabilities and an Aging Population On-Demand Webinar

    Contains 3 Component(s)

    This 60-minute ACC on-demand webinar offering 1.0 PDH credit will guide participants through requirements and opportunities in accessible design, and be introduced to the regulations that govern accessible design, including the 2018 FAA Reauthorization Bill that included an Airline Passengers with Disabilities Bill of Rights.

    More than ever before, society has embraced the fact that travel is for everyone. An increase in mobility options for individuals with disabilities has created a larger customer base for tourism and revenue. Additionally, airports need to retain access for the current traveling public. According to several research consortiums, approximately 10,000 Baby Boomers reach retirement age every day. This generation will include people who develop cognitive and physical disabilities and continue to seek air travel. Airports, airlines, and the cities they connect are realizing these trends. 

    Although accessibility is required by The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), this regulation comes with the challenge of imparting new concepts upon legacy infrastructure and policies. 

    This ACC on-demand webinar will guide participants through requirements and opportunities in accessible design. Participants will be introduced to the regulations that govern accessible design, including the 2018 FAA Reauthorization Bill that included an Airline Passengers with Disabilities Bill of Rights. Participants will understand the diversity of cognitive and physical disabilities that can be considered in the design and operation of facilities. Participants will become familiar with technology that is currently used to improve special needs travelers’ navigation within airports. Ultimately, participants will understand an approach to infrastructure and policy called universal design, which moves accessibility from the owner’s punch list to the designers’ foundational creativity.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    At the end of this ACC on-demand webinar, participants will be able to:
    • Summarize regulations that govern accessible requirements and locate FAA or ACRP resources that help interpret the requirements.
    • Highlight technology and practices to help individuals with disabilities navigate airports.

  • ACC The Vital Need and Your Role in Recapitalizing Military Airfield Infrastructure On-Demand Webinar

    Product not yet rated Contains 3 Component(s)

    This 60-minute ACC on-demand webinar - available 24/7 - will provide participants with an overview of the necessity of investing in military airfield infrastructure and airfield facility requirements for new aircraft..

    This ACC on-demand webinar presents a study by Jacobs Engineering and their engagement by the U.S. Navy and Air Force to study the airfield pavement impacts of new aircraft such as the F-35, V-22, P-8, and KC-46. The study found that the new aircraft do have increased and some unique impacts on airfield pavement and airfield layout. However, the study provided evidence and data to confirm that the majority of U.S. military airfield infrastructure is deteriorating at a rapid rate and requires significant action to recapitalize pavements and supporting utilities to sustain the current mission and expanding requirements.

    This webinar presentation will provide background on the status and causes of these deteriorated airfield conditions to educate the airfield planning and engineering industry to assist in advocating for the urgent need for military airfield infrastructure investment. Specific information on the airfield facility requirements for the new aircraft will be presented, as well as guidance on military planning and design resources. The webinar will include information on how members of the ACC community can assist the military most effectively with airfield planning, design, and construction phase engineering services.     

    At the end of this ACC on-demand webinar, participants will be able to:

    • Identify the airfield facility requirements of new military aircraft
    • Understand military airfield planning and design standards

  • ACC Understanding the Performance Grade (PG) Asphalt Binder System: How to Specify the Correct Binder for Your Airfield Project On-Demand Webinar

    Contains 3 Component(s)

    This 90-minute ACC on-demand webinar will provide an overview of the Performance Grade (PG) asphalt binder specification (ASTM D6373) used by the FAA to select the proper asphalt for use in airfield pavements.

    This ACC on-demand webinar will provide an overview of the Performance Grade (PG) asphalt binder specification (ASTM D6373) used by the FAA to select the proper asphalt for use in airfield pavements. It will detail the development of the Performance Grade (PG) binder system and compare it with the shortcomings of the previous asphalt binder grading systems. The program will explain the effects of climate on asphalt pavement performance, and how the PG system selects the asphalt grade for any project location. The presenter will describe in detail the tests used to grade asphalts using the PG system and their relationships to field performance. The webinar will also explain asphalt "grade bumping" criteria - why it is necessary and how it applies to the current FAA specifications for designing airfield asphalt pavements. Participants will learn how selecting an incorrect asphalt binder for an airfield pavement can cause the pavement to rut or crack prematurely, which shortens the pavement life significantly. The webinar will outline why it is important to understand the basics of the PG asphalt binder system to be able to select the asphalt which will provide the highest level of pavement performance and the longest pavement life.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    At the end of this ACC on-demand webinar, participants will be able to:
    • Differentiate between the PG binder system and the previous asphalt specifications.  
    • Describe the tests used to grade asphalts in the PG system.  
    • Explain the importance of "grade bumping" on airfield pavements. 
    • Select and apply the correct asphalt for any airfield project.
