This project will continue to further develop the new Phoenix Runway and establish safe evaluation techniques. The team will observe impact of aircraft operations on the runway between landing and take-off. They will monitor tasking associated with runway construction and maintenance, allowing them to provide operational guidance to runway operators and users in oral and written form.
Field Season Overview
Two engineers will deploy to work with USAP contractors and support agencies. They will be based at McMurdo Station and will require two snowmobiles for transportation to and from the runway.
