Cyberphysical Personalized Mass Transit
WISE Ships for Passenger, Freight, Utility, and Emergency Services – Fire and Medical, Evacuation
Λr + Tintrí, literally “On Lightning” or “Lightningborne” in Irish, a dramatic, more figurative expression of commonly experienced electricity that is quietly delivered by one’s regional service provider and the primary form of power driving our proposed family of high-speed flying ships.
Fleet Réalta Corps is dedicated, both individually and in-union, to the formation of public-private partnerships for reinvention and continuous development of, societal-wide critical intelligence systems and cyberphysical infrastructure.
Mobility Infrastructure for land, sea, air, above and beyond is the initial focus . . .
We begin with the ΛrTintrí ERJ-21 CíríƞToinne (Wave Crest), a proposed multi-objective, multi-mission family of Ecocentric, Hydrofoil Assisted Wing-In-Surface Effect, All-Electric Jet-Powered Vessels, not Airliners but “Flairliners” possessing advanced V/STOL launch, land, and perpetual loitering capability.
This venture is predicated on the assumed feasibility of wireless primary power, a smart grid-to-smart road technology with auxiliary power storage promising to enable the near-term birth of practical electric aviation for mass transportation.
Operational speeds Waterborne 20 knots, Foilborne – 100 knots, with Top Speed Flareborne approximately 466.717 knots (Mach 0.7). That means 240 to 300 passengers delivered in less than an hour, from San Francisco to Los Angeles.
Fleet Réalta Corps’ mission of ΛrTintrí envisions these vehicles and corresponding infrastructural dependencies with capabilities meeting and exceeding the current variants of the Lockheed Martin C-130 Super Hercules with a suite of plug and play intermodal payload modules of twice the C-130’s Super Hercules payload capacity of 44,500 lbs or 20,184.86 kg.
These medium capacity vessels will bypass the hub-and-spoke air route system, providing point-to-point services tailored to optimally extend the practical utility of existing modes of public transport, with highly adaptive and flexible MHCS or Modular Heavy Cargo System configurations that will accommodate future heavy-lift drone delivery modules for intermodal containerization, enhanced HCAM or High Capacity Ambulance Modules, and MAFFS or Modular Airborne FireFighting Systems designed for live and semi-autonomous remote piloted close engagement of HazMat and Forest Fire scenarios.
These crafts will be optimized for intracoastal waters, tributaries, deltas, and near-coastal urban, suburban, rural waypoints providing point-to-point services that make existing public and private transportation more accessible to more people and small to medium businesses with unprecedented efficacy.
