Thanks, I missed that bit. However a 30s gap at aircraft speed doesn't sound particularly safe.

For a fully-automated system, that's a lot of time.  It takes 20 seconds of 1.4 G deceleration (mild discomfort) to go from 600mph to zero.  In a true emergency, 3G deceleration (not comfortable, but survivable) would stop a pod in under 10 seconds.
