This report identifies the objective of Workshop 5, which are as follows: (1) identify and describe the functional types of airports and their capacity problem characteristics; (2) identify methods for increasing landside capacity through physical, technological, and operational means and describe known and potential effectiveness of each; (3) develop tentative priorities for which methods of increasing landside capacity are most worthwhile for specific functional types of airports; and (4) recommend researchand development that includes program priorities for increasing landside capacity for the following categories - (a) resolution of areas of uncertainty regarding suitability, performance, quality of service and cost of available physical, technological, and operational methods to facilitate their implementation (i.e., analyses, demonstrations), and (b) development of new technology and managerial techniques applicable to specific to specific capacity problem characteristics. Workshop 5 had as its primary focus the determination of availabe and potential technological, operation-procedural, and institutional-regulatory methods for providing additional landside capacity at existing airports in the U.S. The Workshop developed approximately 20 research and development statements elaborating on specific ares of consern within the landside where it was apparent that there was a void in existing documentation of the nature and extent of the problems, previous successes and failures in solving those problems, and methodologies, specific actions, events, or devices that might be used to overcome the identifiable capacity constraints at existing airport facilities. The Workshop dealt only with passenger-related facilities on the airport landside; no attempt was made to address landside problems associated with cargo, service, or other air-related public use facilities.
