Positive train control

Designed for both ITC and E-ATC

RailComm DOC fully supports dispatching PTC-enabled railroads via ITC or E-ATC. So matter which type of PTC you prefer, we've got you covered.

Interoperable Train Control (ITC) Back Office System (BOS)

RailComm's back office system (BOS) provides independent, interoperable and compliant positive train control. Importantly, it's designed to be compatible with third-party ITC PTC systems and can replace your existing BOS.

Enhanced Automatic Train Control (E-ATC)

E-ATC blends the automatic train control (ATC) system with enhanced features to achieve PTC's core functionality. It's often integrated with underlying cab signal systems (CSS), centralized traffic control (CTC) and other signal or train control system enhancements.

How does it work?

  • RailComm DOC allows dispatchers to enter mandatory directives directly into the dispatch system during normal use.
  • All dispatcher required functionality is integrated into the office segment of PTC.
  • DOC communicates to the RailComm back office system (BOS) or wayside equipment.
  • It can then receive information from the locomotive segment (when provided to the BOS), e.g. Overspeed warnings.
