Low Speed Urban Maglev Program

Federal assistance has been provided to the California University of Pennsylvania (CUP) to continue to support research in select areas of Low-Speed Maglev Technology as part of the Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) Urban Maglev Program. The following work tasks will be performed and will require a much narrower definition. Task 1 -- Continue to Build/Integrate Second Chassis and Articulation. Design and fabricate a second chassis and articulation unit and integrate with existing chassis to create a complete Maglev test vehicle. Task 2 -- Update and Refine Validation Testing of the Vehicles. Test the completed vehicle (two chassis units and an articulation) and perform all system integration activities. Task 3 -- Continue Local Coordination and Project Management of the CUP Sky Shuttle System.
