Advanced Materials



Advancements in paving materials and technologies will conserve airport development funds and reduce the downtime of runways from construction, operation, and maintenance activities. Heated pavements are one area of focus in ATR’s advanced materials research. These pavements may help reduce delays caused by winter weather.



Our approach employs both full scale testing and laboratory testing of these modern/advanced pavement technologies to determine which are appropriate for use on our nation’s airfields.
