- The approach to refining the design and deploying it will involve a full team of partners. A local civil engineering partner will be utilized for site surveys, locating all underground utilities, determining the applicable types of footings, creating, submitting, and gaining approval of plans, and the actual oversight of construction.
- Professional engineering services team members will be drawn from a global engineering company such as Altran to complete the software design unique to the Las Vegas system, define system-level testing, and independently execute those tests as part of System Acceptance Testing.
The exact electrical design of the solar panels will rely on the width and shape of the guideway. JPods will leverage its existing relationship with solar power design company TBD_Company to design the specific panels for the top of the guideway and stations.
Program Management will also be a key area. The program will rely on the experience of a seasoned program manager with direct experience in other similar systems and in managing electrical, mechanical, software, and test engineers from both domestic and offshore locations.
