THe highland supersonic transport
Countries are struggling with dilapidated city and commuter transportation in metropolitan areas that also service outlying cities. Metropolises are becoming ill-equipped to handle the growing population with outmoded equipment (track, signal and electrical systems) as well as giving the riders little safety protection from potential terrorist attacks that is vital and critical now and for the future.
At The Table Productions is looking for funding and a strategic partnership to build and co-finance our futuristic Transport System: The Highland Supersonic Transport (“HST”). We are on the cusp of being the first to enter a new frontier in mass transit with supersonic speed and hyperspectral imaging.
The HST system will be provided on an exclusive basis by country via a Public Profit Partnership (PPP) which will boost the country’s economy through new development of software, manufacturing hardware, and system integration and eventually commerce within each terminal station.
Our solution is less expensive, has a low carbon footprint, quicker to implement, and offers a unique hyperspectral imaging to ensure safety for the travelers.
The future is now: The HST
The key for train power reduction is in its battery packs and renewable energy.
HST’s new technology and software will have major impact on the environment producing a 100% sustainable transport system with four percent excess power.
Electric trains showed promise but HST takes it to the next level, using new Nano-Carbon batteries.
Energy Reduction: HST is 100% self sufficient with 4% excess power
- Use existing and closed rails
- Sustainable travel will produce *renewal energy
- Greenhouse emissions reduction by 50%
- Less congestion, less pollution and lower costs for starters
- Solar Component inside Compartments, only 100mw
Nano Rail estimates construction costs will be sixty percent less than conventional urban train networks.
- European passenger trains: decreasing distance and reducing drag to 40km/h (now @ 200kn/h), drag to 3.6kn (now @ 22.8Kn) Total consumption 1.6 kWh/km (now @8.2Kn)
- Germany: Electric ICE trains 330KM/h use 19–33 kWh per km. HST will use 2 kWh/km.
- Lithium-ion battery packs usage to store excess power
- For later use: to sell or reuse
- Adding Nano fuel cells further reduces power. The key to the train is power reduction in battery packs and renewable energy for other functions.
Freight: Rail significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions
- Reduces by 75 percent.
- Freight: Class 7 or Class 8 (largest) trucks saves approx. 1.5 billion gallons per year and…
- Annual greenhouse gas emissions will fall by approximately 17 million tons--equivalent to removing 3.2 million cars from the highways in a year or planting 400 million trees
Freight on Rail – Less urban congestion
- Reduces highway congestion, which cost $160 billion in 2016
- Saves time: (6.9 billion hours) and
- Eliminate wasted fuel (3.1 billion gallons), according to the Texas Transportation Institute’s 2016 Urban Mobility Scorecard.
- Single freight car can replace several hundred trucks.
- Reduces highway wear and tear
- Less city and state pressure to build costly new highways
HST to cut fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions follow:
- Increasing freight rail cars and on trains
- Develop & implement highly advanced computer software systems including HST AI
- Calculates most fuel-efficient speed for train over a given route
- Determine most efficient spacing and timing of compartments (Pods)
- Addresses freezing temperature and hurricanes using nano carbon materials.
- New technologies & operational changes
- Expanding use of distributed power and rails such as HST nano carbon rails ,fuel cells and solar.
Does Rail Transit Save Energy or Reduce CO2 Emissions? YES!
Our Highland Supersonic Transport is estimated at $15-18 million per mile. These figures include costs of land acquisition but exclude train cost.
To build a traditional rail in the United States and Europe costs between $43-65 million per mile. Our system will lower these costs by constructing an elevated system on carbon pylons. The builder would use existing “air rights” and utilize existing abandoned rail lines reducing costs.
In addition, our “guide-rail” is lighter than a steel-wheel rail system and thus less expensive to build while reducing the carbon footprint.
Is expected to exceed $1.3B in 2022 with EBIT over $1.1B. The $125M of initial funding is expected to realize $350M in cumulative EBIT by 2022.
Once prototyping is complete, revenue begins with ATTP licensing technology to each country for their exclusive use. ATTP seeks a licensing fee of $1.5M per mile constructed (the financial plan conservatively assumes a $1M fee).
Revenue assumptions include the installation of HST systems for each of the following years:
2018 - 200 miles 2019 - 400 miles 2020 - 800 miles 2021 - 1200 miles 2022 - 1200 miles
