Abstract S.A.T. Project (US 6.43 1.078 B2) is a three-dimensional transportation system, - a dynamic transportation system - which will create the fust step towards the breaking-up of the bi-dimensional use of modern cities. It is designed for the transportation of people andor freight (around 15-20 passengers per unit). It consists of unitary electric vehcles, working under different directions of movement: horizontal, vertical and on a gradient. Its tracks are modular structures in the form of suspended tubes requiring minimum supports. Vehicles will work under various displacement directions (suspended,
