TransPod's network of global industrial partners support the research, development, and production of TransPod's system.

The Water Auxiliary Company Distribution, or SADE, created in 1918, is a French civil engineering company. It participates in the design, construction, rehabilitation and maintenance of networks (water, energy, telecommunications), and associated works (civil engineering) for all public, industrial and private customers.

SADE teams, specifically the SADE Ingénierie (Sing) teams, helped draft the specifications, positioning SADE as a technical partner for exterior infrastructure (outside the capsule), design, and construction.

REC is a French architecture firm founded in 2001. The group came together with patience as architects and engineers met over time, sharing a certain vision of architecture and the wish to design and carry out exciting and varied projects. REC architecture currently includes fifty employees on three different sites: Toulouse Blagnac, Albi and Paris.
TransPod works with REC regarding the infrastructure, the station design as well as the pod design. Project teams are set up on both sides of the Atlantic to carry out this innovative project effectively with the right engineering assessment.
IKOS is a consulting firm specialized in the railway sector. The group also provides additional services in the energy sector. Established in 2005, IKOS has 15 subsidiaries worldwide.
IKOS’ expertise is supporting the general electrical system, and safety engineering of the TransPod hyperloop pod. IKOS’ team is focusing on the design and development of new technology for energy-efficient power supply generation.
Research work at the Institute of Research for Ceramics – IrCer – is devoted to the transformations of matter involved in processing in bulk ceramics and processing used in surface treatment. The laboratory activities are situated at the intersection of material science – mostly ceramics – and process engineering. The institute brings together 200 members including CNRS scientists, academics of the University of Limoges (France) specialized in chemistry, physics and mechanics of ceramic based materials, physics of plasma processing as well as engineers, technicians and administrative staff. The institute hosts its own material characterization center CARMALIM (CARactérisation des Matériaux de LIMoges) which covers all the requirements for research.

Xlim has an expertise in the domain of electronics and microwaves, optics and photonics, CAD, mathematics, computer sciences and image processing for the application in secured environments, biotechnology and health, energy control and saving.

Xlim incorporates more than 440 people among professors, CNRS researchers, engineers, technicians, post-doctoral researchers, PhD students and administrative staff.

Xlim is structured around 3 scientific poles

    • Electronics
    • Photonics
    • Mathematics, Computer Science, Image
