A common task for the mature economies is to meet the market demands while providing effective and resource-saving solutions. Unitsky String Technologies Inc. has begun an intensive market-seeking in the countries of Europe and MENA (Middle East and North Africa) where there is an increasing demand for transport systems of the new generation.

It is engineering technologies that are traditionally a source of intensive economic growth: the innovations provide new opportunities for old industries and solve their inner issues in a new way, while expanding the industry itself, eliminating the existing restrictions, and stimulating job creation.

Unitsky String Technologies Inc. has for seven years been deeply involved in the design, construction, and maintenance of innovative overhead transport systems all over the world. Through its mission and example, UST Inc. shows how the overhead electric transport industry can change the economies of the regions, provide convenient urban movement, and influence people’s way of life.


The Company’s key know-how is a patented Prestressed Track Structure Technology® (PTS®) that allows designing overhead transport system of increased commercial and ecological efficiency in comparison with ordinary highways, railways, and cableways. UST Inc. owns not only this patent but also more than 50 other relevant international patents and 15 registered trademarks.

As a whole, Unitsky String Technologies Inc.’s research and developments provide solutions for such common tasks as high cost of the overpass (overhead routs) construction and maintenance, speed of passenger and cargo transportation within the congested mega-cities, integration into the existing environment with minimal land allocations and interference in the infrastructure, while ensuring ecological friendliness of the proposed transport solutions.

Reducing the cost of the transport infrastructure construction and maintenance

The current market of transport solutions implies a prior high cost of the communication routs. Thus, each kilometer of the Dubai Metro counted $120M, and the Seattle Center Monorail came out more than $60M per kilometer. A typical subway and a magnetically levitated train cost still more. Even slow local cableways are commonly priced from $5M per kilometer.

Herewith, due to UST Inc., the advanced engineering solutions are now available to design routs which cost is one third lower than ordinary monorail ways, and half the railway or highway price.

The cost of transport system, including all its components (overpass, stations, infrastructure, etc.) begins at $4M per kilometer — such a figure is sounded by Unitsky String Technologies Inc.

Easy integration into the existing infrastructure

The overhead nature of the electric transport complexes and ultra-light-weight elevated track structures (rail-string) proposed by UST Inc. provide an expeditious solution to lay the roads and relieve collapsible traffic flows of the megalopolises, resort cities, logistics hubs, and ports. Herewith, there will be no difficulties with the system integration into the existing infrastructure and even more reconstruction and preservation of the historically significant sites.

Solution to the problem of traffic jams, congestions, and accidents

Passenger transportations with the use of the electric transport means are performed above the ground and managed by the artificial intelligence system that ensures a high security level and nearly zero accidents statistics.

There are several serial models of the electric transport designed and proposed by the Company for mass passenger transportation adapted to different purposes.

Passenger electropods of Unicar® with a capacity of 6 persons and Unibus® with a capacity of 14 persons are able to reach speeds of up to 150 km/h while the energy consumption is 2.5 kW/h and 0.9 kW/h to transport one passenger at a distance of 100 km respectively. At the same time, each of the ultra-light-weight overpasses provides the mass traffic flow of up to 50 thousand persons per hour at a price ranging from $0.02 pass-km.

At the present moment, the high-speed intercity transportation at a speed of up to 500 km/h is performed with the use of six-seats Uniflash™ electropods due to its aerodynamic design and the strengthened track structure. In addition, the Company is carrying out intensive research and development works in the market of high-speed transportation, which will amount to over $130 billion in 2021 according to the Company’s analysts.

Significant reducing in the costs of mass cargo transportation

Prestressed Track Structure Technology® allows reducing logistics expenses to a minimum due to use of the overhead transport systems of the second level and Just-in-time automated loading/unloading mechanisms. These innovations ensure that the cargo flow between hard-to-reach mining sites, industrial centers, and remote transports hubs (ports, airports, and logistics centers) will be possible without the need for additional terminals.

This drastically reduces the cost of the whole logistics process. Only $0.01 per ton-km — this is the price of the transportation provided by UST Inc. transport system with the use of Unicont® electropods transporting TEU and FEU containers at a speed of up to 120 km/h. Herewith, cargo loading and unloading are carried out “on the flight” in ports and logistics hubs without the need for additional stations.

Zero impact on the environment

Unitsky String Technologies Inc.’s solutions combine the scientific achievements in the field of electric high-speed eco-friendly transportation. That is why they are characterized by nearly zero environmental impact, minimal land allocations required for the construction, and low noise level. These features of the Company’s solutions make them optimal and most appropriate to the regions with the restricted ecological requirements and even for UNESCO World Heritage Sites.


“We believe that any scientific developments should be focused on improvement of the people’s life quality, while having practical commercial application. Our products are already serial samples being extensively tested in our R&D Centers in Belarus and the UAE. These tests, as well as the increased demand for our transport solutions, despite COVID, obviously confirm the relevance of our innovations on the international market”, — Nadezhda Kosareva (СЕО, Unitsky String Technologies Inc.).
