China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, a governmental body responsible for developing the technical side of different fields of development in China has claimed that they are doing the plans to develop the next generation train which can travel at a speed of up to 2500 mph.
Liu Shiquan, a Deputy General Manager at CASC, said that their scientists would be looking to develop the super-fast trains of the future that could fly on the ground.
China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation has built to rich the experience and accumulated the technological aspects of know-how through major projects.
It has the capabilities in simulation, modelling and experimentation for large-scale projects, as well as the world-class design capability for supersonic aircraft, all of which lay the important ground for the super-fast train project.
With connections to China’s defence ministry, China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation has been involved in developing the satellites, rockets and missiles.
It has now plans are afoot to turn its futuristic tech closer to home.
The mainland China already has the largest network of high speed trains in the world. It is obviously keen to continue the outstripping the competition.
CASC officials have said that they will work with more than 20 other research institutes in both the domestic and international arena, in the mission to generate the proposed 2,500mph trains.
The Chinese scientists also announced that the plans for an intercity train that can travel at more than 600mph, which clearly designed to compete with American Canadian inventor Elon Musk’s hyperloop concept, which uses air instead of wheels and could result in speeds of more than 700mph.
