The Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) is an industry-driven, applied research program that develops practical solutions to problems faced by airport operators. Funding more than 20 research projects a year, ACRP focuses on research needs that other Federal research programs do not address. ACRP is managed by the Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the National Academies and sponsored by the FAA.
