Accelerated Innovation Deployment (AID) Demonstration Project: Intelligent Compaction and Infrared Scanning Projects

The Accelerated Innovation Deployment (AID) program is one aspect of the multi-faceted Technology and Innovation Deployment Program (TIDP) approach, which provides funding and other resources to offset the risk of trying an innovation. The AID Demonstration funds are available for any project eligible for assistance under title 23, United States Code. Projects eligible for funding shall include proven innovative practices or technologies such as those included in the EDC initiative. Innovations may include infrastructure and non-infrastructure strategies or activities, which the award recipient intends to implement and adopt as a significant improvement from their conventional practice. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Accelerated Innovation Deployment (AID) Demonstration grant program, which is administered through the FHWA Center for Accelerating Innovation (CAI), provides incentive funding and other resources for eligible entities to offset the risk of trying an innovation and to accelerate the implementation and adoption of that innovation in highway transportation. This report documents the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) demonstration grant award for field demonstration projects using intelligent compaction (IC) and infrared scanning (IR) (also called paver-mounted thermal profiles PMTP in the AASHTO PP80 specification). IC is an EDC 2 innovation. IR is a FHWA Strategic Highway Research Program 2 (SHRP2) technology. The report presents details relevant to the employed project innovation(s), the overarching TIDP goals, performance metrics measurement and analysis, lessons learned, nd the status of activities related to adoption of intelligent compaction and paver-mounted thermal profiles as conventional practice by MoDOT.
