NEW WAYS: TILTROTOR AIRCRAFT AND MAGNETICALLY LEVITATED VEHICLES
Demand for high-speed intercity transportation continues to climb in the United States. New technologies, tiltrotor aircraft and magnetically levitated (maglev) trains could help relieve congestion, but would require billions of dollars and substantial Federal support if they are to enter the marketplace.
To support congressional decisionmakers on these technologies, this study: 1) evaluated the state of technology development and additional work necessary to make tiltrotor or maglev economically attractive; 2) examined the potential demand for these technologies; 3) compared maglev and tiltrotor to other similar, but advanced technologies, such as high-speed rail and next generation helicopters; and 4) identified the Federal, State, and private sector roles for supporting these technologies.
The debate over U.S. energy policy, and specifically raising the efficiency of the U.S. automobile fleet by increasing new car fuel economy standards, intersects three key issues: 1) oil imports and national security, 2) global warming, and 3) competitiveness. This report examines the fuel economy potential of the U.S. fleet in an effort to assist Congress in establishing new fuel economy standards.

U.S. OIL IMPORT VULNERABILITY: THE TECHNICAL REPLACEMENT CAPABILITY
Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in August 1990 triggered a request for OTA to update the conclusions of the 1984 report, U.S. Vulnerability to an Oil Import Curtailment: The Oil Replacement Capability. The Subcommittee on Energy And Power of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce subsequently joined in the request. This report examines the changes that have taken place in world oil markets and the U.S. economy since 1984 and provides revised estimates of the technical oil replacement potential that might be attained in the event of a severe and long lasting cutoff of imported oil. The analysis focuses on technologies that are commercially available today or will be within the next 5 years and that are among the most costeffective methods for replacing oil use in a applicable sectors. It also considers the economic impacts of adopting an aggressive oil replacement strategy in a severe oil emergency. The report presents a variety of policy options that could help accelerate the adoption of oil replacement technologies in preparation for, or in response to, a severe supply disruption, or as part of a long-term national policy to reduce import vulnerability.
