Abstract
Magnetic Levitation (maglev) is a relatively new transportation technology in which non-contacting vehicles travel safely at speeds of 250 to 300 miles per hour or higher while suspended, guided and propelled above a guide way by magnetic fields. The guideway is the physical structure along which maglev vehicles are levitated. Two different systems have been developed to operate maglev. Shanghai lines rely on magnetic attraction in what is called an electromagnetic suspension (EMS) system. The other basic concept of the maglev system is the electrodynamics suspension system (EDS). This system depends on repulsive magnetic forces and further research is being conducted by the Japanese and the Maglev 2000 Corporation of Florida. This presentation will describe the physical performance and cost characteristics of a new maglev system design and built to be used for future space launches. Since the evolution of the concept of magnetically levitated trains was first identified, this mode of transportation has proven the ability to overcome the challenges for engineers who design rockets that leaves the planet. However, these benefits cannot be realized without significant government commitment to building the necessary infrastructure.
