Post-Pandemic High-Speed Maritime Transport | The Maritime Executive

By Harry Valentine 2020-10-01 The Maritime Executive

While the pandemic has reduced the international passenger air transport industry to a fraction of its former self, aircraft manufacturers are also experiencing a major downturn in their business. The post-pandemic period would likely witness a slow and economic recovery as businesses and industries seek to rebuild while financially stressed populations seek bargain prices for goods and services.

In the area of intercity passenger transportation, more travellers would likely seek bargain travel options, thereby opening future business opportunities for service companies that specialize in offering fast, frequent and competitively priced transportation services.

During the post-pandemic period, demand such passenger transportation services would likely surge across Southeast Asia between Indonesian and Malaysian coastal cities, with likewise demand surging along Brazil’s Atlantic coast. It is in such regions where the introduction of a high-speed maritime transportation technology that travels above. and close to the water surface. could provide passenger transportation services between coastal cities.

The post-pandemic period could provide the opportunity to introduce wing-in-ground (W.I.G.) technology to commercial intercity passenger service in many regions around the world, competing with short-haul commercial air transport between cities not linked by high-speed passenger train services.

Transportation Costs
While the training of commercial airline pilots is costly, complex and time-consuming, the training is less complex and less costly for future pilots seeking to operate wing-in-ground (W.I.G.) effect technology.

While major airports charge substantial fees to land an airplane, W.I.G. planes can touch down on designated seaplane runways at a fraction of the cost and more safely than traditional seaplanes that utilize comparatively short catamaran pontoons.

When travelling above water at an elevation equivalent to 5% of wingspan, W.I.G planes consume about 1/3rd the fuel of the equivalent weight of aircraft travelling at the same speed. When travelling at half the speed of a commuter plane flying at 10,000-feet or at 150-knots instead of at 300-knots, theoretical fuel consumption would calculate to 1/3rd x 1/8th x 1.5 = 1/16th that of the aircraft. Touching down on a seaplane runway and riding up a ramp at a coastal airport would allow battery-electric W.I.G. planes with take-off wheels to accelerate along a runway to become airborne, greatly reducing energy usage compared to accelerating on the water to lift-off speed. Battery-electric W.I.G. planes would greatly exceed the travel range of battery-electric commuter planes and occupy a unique market niche.

Welcome to The EӎCult, the Elektromotive Cult.

We will be the real rebel alliance taking up the fight against motorsports being the exclusive playground of wealth and power, and to remake it into a demonstration of cooperative problem-solving, cooperative economics, and competition based on demonstration talent, skill, and character instead of who has the most influence and biggest bank.

Our current focus, but is not limited to, the founding of a new vision for the motorsports community, a vision where achievement is based on your talent and skill.

Together we will challenge the mainstream entertainment and transportation corporations and their monopoly on power and who has access.

Before the Iron Horse
Two thousand years ago, the ancient Greeks recognized that if rider and horse were to survive in battle, complete cooperation, simpatico was necessary between the pair, from this school of thought was born Dressage, to train riders and horses to function as one.

Modern Dressage
During the Renaissance Dressage was reborn, reaching its peak in the 18th century, with the founding in 1729 of the Spanish Riding School, and establishing the modern discipline.

Dressage is a French term, commonly translated to mean “training” is a highly skilled form of riding performed in exhibition and competition, solo as well as teams. It is a sport, a science, and an “art” that in the final analysis has been pursued for sake of demonstrating mastery.

Olympic History
Equestrian sports first featured on the Olympic programme of the Paris Games in 1900, and with brief gaps continues to this day under the aegis of the Fédération Équestre Internationale, the worldwide organization that serves the Olympic and Paralympic communities of equestrian athletes in the disciplines of Eventing, Jumping, Dressage, Endurance and Vaulting, Driving.

Ɍād♞ÐressurWheeled Dressage
Muiren Ni Sidach’s love of motorcycles was born from her love of horses, being an advice fan of English and Western Saddle riding events from Dressage to Barrel Racing.

ɌādÐressur™ is a graded multi-event system of a structured competitive skill test with elements borrowed from Freestyle Stunt Riding, Motorcycle Gymkhana, Trials Riding, Supermoto with standard built machines that are calibrated to the size, weight, and skill level of the competitor. This is to ensure that the trial is a demonstration of knowledge, talent, skill, and characters.

These two-wheel-drive, electric motorcycles are extremely lightweight, with 3 major frame sizes and motor performance profile specified for the event, the weight of the pilot, and the skill class they compete in. Though power is drawn directly from the roadway each pilot has an energy budget they are restricted to within the event and so can run out of power in the same way one might run out when riding a liquid-fuelled vehicle.

These bikes will have active control suspensions, with command variable travel and other regulatory controlled metrics based on rider size, weight, and competitive class.

A series of elimination heats are staged on a Multi-Terrain Cyberphysical Road Course with pseudo-Urban Obstacle Roads, blending into pseudo-Interstate Highway with Nürburgring’s design elements before entering unpaved but curated natural terrain with gravel transition to a mixture of dirt, sand, stone, and grass with, with much insight from the Ed Bargy manual “Features of Race Track Design”.

This cyberphysical road course will be built, operated, maintained by ΘuterPlace ΛɌ is part of the brick-n-mortar mission of Λn Solas Si ΛrtScience creating an experiential full-time augmented reality where pilots first-person experience is available to subscribing patrons via our community’s AR/VR infrastructure.
