Our Expertise

SYSTRA has a full Digital Rail capability to provide the UK‘s rail network with the solutions required to meet the demands of the coming decades.

Our breadth of experience includes application of Digital Railway technologies in diverse contexts from lightly used rural railways, through new-build high speed lines, to the first applications of Automatic Train Operation over ERTMS on busy urban railways in Australia and the UK.

Our in-house expertise includes Traffic Management Systems, Communication Based Train Control and Class B signalling technologies. We work across the full project life cycle from feasibility and concept to operation and maintenance. 

We have over fifteen years' experience delivering ERTMS projects in eight different countries, including Cambrian and Thameslink in the UK. We have pioneered application of BIM to signalling to address data management challenges of Digital Railway projects.

SYSTRA understands that Digital Rail is not all about signalling technology. Our digital expertise also includes:

  • BIM
  • Asset management
  • Timetable and passenger modelling
  • Technology innovation (including IoT, Big Data and Cyber Security)
  • Systems Engineering.
