Summary - STC International has developed an Overhead Suspended Light Rail System model which is applauded by all those who have seen the technology in operation. It is now ready to advance to the specific design and construction of this system, originally on a 74 acre site at Florida's Museum Of Science and Industry Campus (MOSI). Once built it will extend to the adjacent University of South Florida (USF).
This system will use an existing Solar Array which will charge capacitor banks used to flash charge the vehicle's on board battery Ultra-capacitor system as it arrives at each station. Additionally, motors on board the vehicles will, during braking, become generators to feed energy back into the on board power supply.
In August 2008 STC began using funding from a U.S. Department Of Energy Grant to start this design process on a
new Power Accumulator Transfer System. Findings have encouraged
a recent submission to the National Science Foundation that will involve a power grooming system design, reducing
energy consumption and pollution from existing ship cranes at seaports.
Recently received Testimonials on Sky Train from U.S. GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS can

Florida Senator Mike Fasano wrote to the National Science Foundation in support of
Sky Train's crane upgrade system, which "will surely lead to
Green Tech jobs, a reduction in air pollution, and aid in the desire to become an energy independent country."
James Boyd, commissioner and Vice Chair of the California Energy Commission wrote a letter of recommendation for an
NSF grant proposal where he stated he was "impressed with Karl's innovative ideas, and welcome the application of this technology... where
energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction are important state policy priorities."

Congressman Christopher Shays, US House of Representatives - "Sky Train is a research company focused on zero-carbon footprint
and developing an array of green transportation methods. They are developing an overhead-suspended light rail system with the
Florida Solar Energy Center for exhibit at the Museum Of Science and Industry in Tampa, Florida... will be instrumental
in next generation plug-in transportation and plug-in vehicles."|

Florida Senator Mike Fasano to the Honorable Stephanie Kopelousos of the Florida Department of Transportation
"I would like to inform you of a breakthrough in the energy savings and rail transportation. Sky Train is a
National Climate Change solution fitting many Smart Growth/Transit Oriented Projects. After being reviewed by consultants
of the National Science Foundation, Grand Canyon "Parks" and Orlando Airport this technology was short listed as meeting their criteria."
Jay Inslee, US House of Representatives "I applaud the Sky Train Corporation for their work towards developing
new and innovating technologies to increase the efficiency and safety of our transportation network.
I hope that you will give their proposal every consideration as you move forward in your decisionmaking process.
