APTech Completes Louisiana DOTD Aviation APMS Update

June 2018

 

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LDOTD) Aviation is proud of APTech's work with LDOTD's Airport Pavement Management System (APMS).

 

“The state of Louisiana is very pleased with the final product that Applied Pavement Technology along with KSA delivered to our office and to the airport system throughout our state,” said Brad Brandt, Aviation Director. “The level of professionalism and attention to detail provided by both of these firms contributed to the overall success of this project.”

 

National Association of State Aviation Officials (NASAO)

 

As part of the APMS update, APTech developed an Interactive Data Exchange Application (IDEA) — which combines the use of maps, photographs, and links — to allow viewers to quickly identify pavement conditions and needs at a specific airport or throughout Louisiana.

Get your Data Quality Management Program documentation in place by May 20, 2018

January 2018

 

Check out the guidance APTech developed for FHWA on quality management of pavement data as you prepare to meet the Data Quality Management Program deadline.

 

The Performance Management (PM2) Final Rule (CFR 490.319) specifies that each state DOT shall develop and use an FHWA-approved Data Quality Management Program for pavement condition metrics.

 

Quality Management Programs must include, at a minimum, methods and processes for:

  • Data collection equipment calibration and certification
  • Certification of persons performing manual data collection
  • Data quality control measures
  • Data sampling, review, and checking
  • Error resolution and data acceptance

APTech Has a New President!

January 2017

 

In a year of pronounced change, Applied Pavement Technology, Inc. (APTech) is excited to share this news of a planned and orderly transition. On January 1, 2017, Katie Zimmerman turned over day-to-day responsibilities to Monty Wade, APTech’s new President. After founding the Company and serving 21 years as our torchbearer, Katie has nurtured and mentored a new generation of leaders—led by Monty—ready to take on the challenges of the future. She looks forward to continuing to help the Company serve you, our clients and friends, while devoting more time to the growing field of asset management. “I’m excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for APTech in all phases of our work, and I’m really happy that our next group of leaders is ready to step in and take over,” she said.

 

While Katie’s focus and responsibilities have changed, she certainly isn’t going anywhere! At the corporate level, she’s assumed the role of Executive Vice President and is focusing on strategic initiatives, while continuing to lead APTech’s efforts in asset management. She also continues to serve as Chief Executive Officer and Chair of APTech’s Board of Directors.

 

Monty Wade joined APTech 19 years ago and most recently served as our Program Director for Commercial Aviation and Department of Defense projects. After earning BS and MS degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois, Monty has spent his 24-year career as a pavement engineer working on every type of project we do, from research to evaluation to design, for both airfield and roadway clients. He has worked within both the public and private sectors across the United States, collaborated with most of our teaming partners, and been instrumental in APTech’s growth since joining the firm in 1997. He has also been instrumental in managing and strategically guiding the company to the strong position it is in today. He has assembled a strong leadership team which blends the strengths of our founding generation with the skills and enthusiasm of the next.
