  • Abstract:
    The Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Urban Maglev Workshop was held at FTA Headquarters in Washington, DC, on September 8-9, 2005. The key workshop goals were to review progress, share lessons learned among the grantees, and discuss future direction for the program. Five competitively selected grantees, including Maglev Urban System Associates (MUSA) (Baltimore, MD), General Atomics (GA of San Diego, CA), MagneMotion, Inc. (Acton, MA), Colorado DOT (CDOT, Denver, CO), and Maglev 2000 (Titusville, FL), as well as the guest presenters of overseas maglev systems (Chuba High Speed Surface Transportation (CHSST) of Japan and Rotem of Korea) presented their project summaries and lessons learned. Old Dominion University (ODU) of Virginia also presented a summary of the American Maglev Technology (AMT) Maglev project. During the 2-day workshop, information exchanges and vigorous discussions were held on the direction of the technological improvements, performance requirements, subsystem comparison, and market entry relative to deployment. Key issues identified or addressed during the workshop became suggested topics of discussion for an additional workshop in the near future. /Abstract from report, p. iii/
