The launch overpass of the General Planetary Vehicle is a take-off, power, and communication hub for geocosmic transportation.
The height of the launch overpass structure depends on the terrain it passes through. The equator of our planet crosses plains, mountains and oceans, and each deviation from the horizontal level should be considered individually. The main obstacles in the construction of the equatorial launching platform on land are the mountains, such as the East African Plateau (Mt. Kilimanjaro) in Africa and the Andes (Mt. Chimborazo) in South America.
The overpass’ surface is used for the followings GPV operations: electric recharging, cargo loading, take-off, landing, unloading, transfer of solar energy accumulated in space, maintenance and repair.
The following TransNet elements are also placed in the overpass area:
- 1.Hypervelocity track in the forevacuum channel (transport speed is up to 1250 km/h).
- 2.City highway (transport speed is up to 150 km/h).
- 3.Power lines.
- 4.Communication lines.
