Abstract:

This report develops investment criteria for retrofit of runway approach lighting systems under the Approach Lighting System Improvement Program ALSIP. A major component of this program is the retrofit of existing rigid light support structures with frangible mountings. Other aspects include conversion of high-intensity lighting systems to more energy-efficient configurations. There are 397 approach lighting systems eligible for retrofit under the ALSI Program. The cost of modifying these systems is 77.7 million. Criteria are developed by benefit-versus-cost analysis. Each lighting system under ALSIP will be evaluated using the appropriate benefitcost BC formula. All systems will be ranked by order of BC ratio. Implementation of the program will continue within approved funding levels in accordance with the criteria ranking. Author
