Alstom is amongst thirty other European companies to have taken part in the PROTECTRAIL programme, which has just come to an end after four years of product development. The company has successfully demonstrated the performance of the ISM2 module for its Iconis Integrated Control Centre.
The module has been installed and integrated into the Iconis supervision software, and is specially designed for railway operations. It is to counter terrorist attacks, vandalism, malicious acts, armed attacks and other day-to-day operational problems. Alstom’s Iconis Integrated Control Centre is capable of supervising and monitoring all aspects of the operator’s network.
As part of the PROTECTRAIL programme, the solutions offered by the various parties involved in the transport sector were tested in the presence of a number of European clients (SNCF and RATP from France, PKP from Poland, TCDD from Turkey and ItalCertifer Scpa from Italy for example) to evaluate their precise needs and obtain initial feedback.
Alstom’s solution facilitates better global traffic security management on a day-to-day basis, both out on the track and within stations. “Our solution stands out from the others because it is highly intuitive for operators in the sector,” explains Pascal Clr, Alstom Transport’s Senior Vice-President for the Transport Information Solutions division. “The solutions offered so far were created primarily for the aeronautical industry and then used for rail.”
