New Ways: Tiltrotor Aircraft and Magnetically Levitated Vehicles

New Ways: Tiltrotor Aircraft and Magnetically Levitated Vehicles

Date: September 1991
Creator: United States. Congress. Office of Technology Assessment.
Description: Common issues for these systems include their possible contributions to improving mobility in congested corridors, U.S. technology leadership, the Federal role in transportation research and development, and institutional and community barriers to major, new infrastructure programs. Moreover, some Federal financing is likely to be required if commercial maglev or tiltrotor technologies are to be developed by U.S. industry over the next decade. Congress will need to clarify its objectives for supporting or encouraging these technologies before it can make wise decisions on when or whether to undertake substantial, long-term Federal programs in support of either or both of them. This report identifies several funding and management options for consideration if such goals are established.
