Abstract:

A low-cost mobile spray unit was developed for applying experimental marking patterns on runway and taxiway surfaces. Speed of application and drying were essential since runway availability was critical therefore, a cold-water paint was developed for use with the spray unit. The prototype paint spraying device was assembled from readily available stock components and tested. The cold-water airport paint, developed concurrently, proved compatible with the spray unit and possessed the required ease of handling and application qualities. Results of this prototype unit testing indicate that a mobile paint spraying device, similar to the type developed, would be well-suited to the task of marking runway and taxiway surfaces, particularly where frequent repainting of touchdown areas is necessary.
