Japan Developing Space Solar Power

Japan Shooting For Space-Based Solar Power

The hope is to commercialize orbital solar power by 2030. Such a system would have such advantages as generating electricity regardless of the weather on the ground.

The project will develop technologies to transmit power down to the earth. The idea is to convert solar electricity into microwaves, which would then be converted back into electricity at the surface.

    “Double Transrapidsystem IAT- MAGLEV-TEAM”

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    welcome to IAT-Maglev, the new doubledecker maglev-system.

    if you are interested in a more environmentally friendly transport system in our new future in whatever form, to work with,
    and possibly a network of promoters to build, we would return to a brief expressing very grateful and pleased.

    Our contact and the demand of a possible cooperation in the matter of “Traffic Engineering our Future” offers you the chance to
    use your personal commitment to you and your institute / company with as much as prestigious institution in a world economic project.

    Innovative Access Team have further developed Germany‘s Transrapid system.
    Undoubtedly, maglev trains have the potential to solve future transportation problems.
    Maglev means clean technology at affordable prices, quick transportation solutions and a prestigious undertaking.
    The new IAT-maglev saves space, time and energy due to its construction and innovative energy supply system powerd by solar energy.

    Here, you can learn about IAT‘s new vision of a maglev that has significant advantages over its predecessor. Issues, such as advanced safety, minimisation of noise pollution, the parallel transport of people and goods, lowest usage of energy possible add to a high economically efficiency. Costs shall be kept at the lowest level possible.
    Here on our site, you can learn everything about our vision of environmentally friendly transport.

    New development of the Transrapid-System

    Maglev is a profund innovation for the transportation of the future and has long been established. We took the idea further in order to make everything more efficient and effective, whilst trying to minimise costs.

    In addition to the standards of the existing maglev-system, IAT has developed a range of new ideas:

    1. Minimisation of noise pollution
    2. Increase of safety through unmanned drones
    3. Carriers will be able to transport goods.
    4. Our systems protects the environment
    5. Lowest use of energy possible
    6. Great economic useability through reducing amounts of investment
    7. No crashes through single direction tracks
    8. Coaches can easily be changed without additional tracks
    9. IAT‘s double decker maglev is a prestige object!

    Our tracks will be able to accompany some 300,000 m2 of solar cells within every 100 km length.
    Our environmentally friendly approach and the double decker system are both novelties and will add to the existing prestige of a functioning maglev system.

    Please do take a look at our video on this webite. Therein, we try to give you an overview of our idea. Travel with us into the future.

    Should you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    The paths were thus preparing for a second time, the polics must now decide how the choices they will make.

    Yours faithfully IAT – MAGLEV – TEAM Dieter Schramek
