STATE-OF-THE-ART CAR DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM FINAL TEST REPORT. VOLUME 4. SIMULATED DEMONSTRATION TEST
The Urban Rapid Rail Vehicle and Systems Program is an integrated development program directed toward improving high speed, frequent-stop urban rail systems. The objective of the State-of-the-Art Car (SOAC) is to demonstrate the best state-of-the-art in rapid rail car design, with two improved cars using existing proven technology. Primary goals for the cars are passenger convenience and operating efficiency. Simulated Demonstration Tests of the SOAC two-car train was conducted with the purpose to enhance the probability of trouble-free operation in the demonstrations for the riding public to be held in the cities of New York, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, and Philadelphia. The demonstration profile was set up as a composite of the five demonstration city routes.
