A 300 mph (500/kn/hr) magnetically levitated ground transportation system, developed in Germany, is now ready for revenue application. The Maglev system features contactless electromagnetic suspension and long stator three-phase propulsion. This transportation mode has little effect on the environment, is safe, and is cost effective. A revenue system is planned in Germany and a proposal for a system in Florida is under consideration.
