Project Member(s): Piccardi, M.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Linkage Projects)

Start year: 2009

Summary: This project will enhance the capabilities of Australian airport operators to design and manage complex airport systems. Research outcomes will enable the identification of patterns of behaviour and will provide tools to manage airport effectiveness and balance conflicting security, economic and passenger driven pressures. Outcomes will improve productivity, enhance capabilities for critical infrastructure protection, and lessen the cost of mandated security, estimated to grow to $152M by 2010 for the five major Australian airports. The deliverables of this project will be transferable to other complex socio technical systems providing the potential to transform a range of Australian critical infrastructure and transportation hubs.
