Indra to deploy its railroad control and signaling technology on High-Speed Rail links to Burgos And Leon

Indra is to deploy its proprietary and cutting-edge railroad control, security and signaling technology to the high-speed rail lines between Valladolid and Leon and Venta de Baños and Burgos.

The project confirms Indra’s standout position in rail signaling, with the multinational responsible for deploying the Centralized Traffic Control system on the new line. This is the software that centralizes and controls all signaling systems required for the line to operate properly. The company will also supply auxiliary detection systems and security sensor concentrators, based on an innovative Indra safety platform. This is the vital processing system that guarantees the security of rolling stock and full integration with the various signaling systems.

The lines will also benefit from the latest version of Indra’s ASFA system (Signal Announcement and Automatic braking), the Spanish ATP (automatic train protection) security system, thus enabling safe use of the rail infrastructure and automating the control and supervision of train traffic. The digital ASFA system developed by the company has been installed on approximately one third of all trains operating in Spain, but this the first time that Indra has implemented the ASFA system on-track.

As part of the project Indra will also supply systems for telecommunications, video surveillance, access control and all general security systems.
