Energy and Transportation
RRG staff includes engineering and technology experts with decades of experience in technology specification, assessment, test and evaluation, and C4I systems integration in support of emergency operations centers, command posts, and public safety communications systems. We help clients design and implement advanced EOCs based on contemporary concepts of operation that are informed by (a) our intimate understanding of emergency response and emergency management best practices; and, (b) the lessons learned from our direct experience in training, exercise and real-world events.
Readiness Resource Group Incorporated (RRG), Maglev 2000 Corporation (M2000), and Longbow Launch LLC, form a collaborating industry team that is promoting a portfolio of patents for superconducting maglev technologies for advanced surface transport, grid-scale energy storage and national security applications.
The Maglev 2000 2nd Generation superconducting maglev technologies invented by Drs. Jim Powell and Gordon Danby, as expressed in a broad portfolio of patents, offer the most economical construction and O&M costs associated with high speed surface transport solutions. Cost per mile of construction is dramatically less than high-speed rail (steel wheel) or prior maglev designs. M2000 patents include the unique Maglev Emplacement over Rail Road Infrastructure (MERRI) that allows lower speed transit of sc maglev vehicles over conventional rails to take advantage of existing rail yards, central city train stations, and inland and maritime ports. No other maglev systems offer this compatibility or the electronic switching of guideways. This is the future of freight movement.
A new approach for the grid-scale energy storage and rapid delivery of electric power, MAglev Power Storage (MAPS), utilizes superconducting maglev vehicles to store electrical energy. With MAPS, the power generated by wind and solar farms could be stored at very low cost and very high efficiency, providing an alternative to battery farms and pumped hydro systems, ready when peaking power demands occur.
Readiness Resource Group Incorporated (RRG), in collaboration with Maglev Strategies, LLC and Maglev 2000 Corporation, is committed to the feasibility study, prototyping and implementation of the superconducting maglev Water Train. RRG views the Water Train as an embodiment of advanced maglev surface transport inventions of Drs. James Powell and Gordon Danby that can ignite new industries in transportation, grid-scale energy storage while contributing to sustainable advancements in water resources management. We invite you to consider the concept within the Water Train overview
