Creating the first major new mode of transport in more than a century
With speeds two to three times faster than high-speed rail and an on-demand experience, hyperloop can reduce a 300 km commute to under 20 minutes — smashing today’s traditional transportation boundaries. We’re helping Virgin Hyperloop One make the new system a reality. Our systems engineering and enterprise architecture experts have been working on the plans for the complex software and traffic control systems that will be needed.
devised the technology blueprint for new transport system that’s created for customers, rather than infrastructure
accelerated delivery of the software systems requirements required for hyperloop by 30 per cent
Imagine being able to travel from Dallas to Austin in 20 minutes, or Dubai to Abu Dhabi in 12 minutes. Virgin Hyperloop One is reinventing transport. The new transport system will levitate magnetically, running in a partial vacuum to reach speeds of up to 670 miles per hour on land.
We’ve worked hand in hand with Virgin Hyperloop One to devise the technology blueprint on which the transport system operates. Our systems engineering and enterprise architecture experts have been working on the plans for the complex software and traffic control systems that will be needed.
With our support, Virgin Hyperloop One was able to deliver the software systems requirements 30 per cent faster.
When considering the impact of the partnership, Chris Lynch, Global Transport Lead at PA, highlights the positive human future it’s building: “The technology and speed are incredible. But it’s hyperloop’s effect on everyday people that’s unprecedented in our lifetime. It’s projects like this that epitomise PA’s vision for the future of transport – bold, bright and changing the world we live in for the better.”
In India, Virgin Hyperloop One, with our support, is on track to connect Pune and Mumbai, two major economic centres, creating a competitive mega-region with a combined population of 26 million people. A pre-feasibility study found the time, cost and accident reduction benefits of the Pune–Mumbai route could be worth US$55 billion over 30 years. That’s a seriously positive human future, built by a transport mode created for customers, rather than infrastructure.
Our partnership with PA is helping make hyperloop a reality, fast. Our teams of experts have worked tirelessly together as we strive to get the first new mass mode of transport in 100 years operational. From delivering complex new technology systems and safety frameworks to shaping the long-term road map for our business, PA have been there every step of the way - blazing a trail for the industry and driving towards a brighter future for transport.
