SkyWay technology advantages are based on the trials, errors, and successes of the road construction and the vehicle creation pioneers. They adapted, adopting the best of what was created before. Also discarded the mistakes of others. That gave UniSkyUSA its unique privilege of coordinating America’s safest, best cost-effective, and most reliable transport system currently available, the SkyWay technology.
The system innovation comes from an original and effective combination of well-known engineering and technological solutions. All individual SkyWay transport system components have the same DNA. As a result, its unprecedented design and operational features are ensured.
The high-speed of the system comes from its innovative mounted and suspended wheeled vehicles that operate above the ground with the infrastructure of modern rail and string elevated structures. Divided into five sub-classes, ultra-lightweight, lightweight, medium-weight, heavyweight and super-heavyweight, SkyWay vehicles can be low-speed (up to 62 mph), fast (up to 124 mph) high-speed (up to 186 mph), super high-speed (up to 248 mph) and hyper-speed (up to 310 mph).
The vehicles for velocities into the low 90’s mph provide Intracity urban speed. That includes the capacity to carry more than 25,000 passengers/hour on a maximum 30% gradient.
Heavy loads increase the required road maintenance. Also increased, the size of the trucks to best move cargo. SkyWay has a suspended Cargo Speed of up to the low 90’s mph and up to 310 mph (mounted). Also more than 200 MM tons/year, with a 30% Maximum gradient.
SkyWay operates on overhead rails fixed to concrete or steel supports. The overhead rails are reinforced with high-tension steel wires or built as elevated truss structures. The rails are placed at optimal height between 3 to 100 meters above the ground. Supports are at 50 to 100 meter intervals.
SkyWay’s highly aerodynamic rolling stock is fully automated and offers the most advanced rail safety and propulsion system technology. As a result passenger mode vehicles can be designed to seat between eight and 100 people. Freight mode delivers over a distance of up to 6,200 miles.
The most noteworthy is that a Sky Way transport system can be built for much less than conventional heavy rail systems and light rail infrastructure.
