These systems are the main command and control platforms for NJT’s entire operating area, providing real-time monitoring and control under normal and emergency conditions. They’re being upgraded to include Positive Train Control (PTC) functionality, enhanced reporting features, new interfaces to external systems and increased data capacity.
Through ARINC’s Advanced Information Management (AIM) rail system, NJT will “receive a modern platform design to meet the monitoring and control requirements of its commuter rail operations.” In addition, the platform is expandable so it can easily accommodate future rail line extensions. The new platform will not only provide new functionalities for the system administrator and Centralized Traffic Control (CTC) and SCADA dispatchers, it also will include an information repository for selected real-time data available to users and customers outside the control centers.
The work will be conducted at NJT’s dispatch center in Kerney, N.J.
“We’ll be applying our state-of-the-art technology and business practices to NJT’s rail operations to enhance operational efficiency, stability, reliability and security, along with providing a foundation for future growth,” said Eric Pelli, director of Rail Systems for Collins Aerospace. “As the industry leader in transit and commuter dispatch systems, we have been helping NJT continuously improve its operations and performance over the past 20 years.”
