Airport Pavements

The Airport Concrete Pavement Technology Program (ACPTP) is a cooperative contract between the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center (CP Tech Center) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Its goal is the implementation of airfield pavement technologies that extend the life of airfield pavements—to improve airfield reliability, efficiency, and safety to keep America moving forward.


ACPTP objectives are as follows:

  1. To identify airport pavement issues and problems eligible for ACPTP funding
  2. To coordinate FAA and industry efforts to implement technologies and to solve problems identified through the program as important to the interests of FAA and industry
  3. To pursue the technology transfer of new solutions, practices, and recommendations as needed, resulting from the individual or collective results of implementation trials and research
