Airports are complex systems, composed by a multitude of enterprises, concessionaires, retail shops, airlines, service companies, public agencies (air traffic control, customs and border control) and public safety organizations.

With the term "SMART airport" we intend the ensemble of solutions, devices and services that optimize and automate the usage of airways and airspace infrastructures,checkpoints, passengers-luggage-cargo control system, info points and internal communications of the airports and also smart connections with technologies similar with the smart cities. Smart airport applications are segmented into core applications and business applications and include but are not limited to: smart transport and parking, smart retail, hospitality, and entertainment, smartworkplaces, smart airport processes, and smart business-to-business services.

The objective of the feasibility study is to identifyand characterize space based services in the smart airports domain; to carry out an analysis of their technical feasibility and viability, make a selection of the most promising ones and propose a roadmap for future implementation.
