Two student teams score wins in Airport Cooperative Research Program design competition

Airport runways become unpredictable with winter precipitation. Mary Johnson, associate professor of aviation and transportation technology, worked with a student team to propose the adaptation of remote sensing technologies used for glaciers and ski resorts to measure snow and ice. Over 10 years, this technology could save $500,000 at Purdue’s airport.
