The Precision Dispatch System (PDS) is the command-and-control system at the heart of railroad operations. PDS is designed to safely and efficiently move trains across the rail network in both signaled and dark territory, provide full visibility of network conditions, and monitor all devices in the network.
The Precision Dispatch System can analyze data coming from all rolling stock and wayside device assets. With this information, PDS can run advanced analytics to enable preventive maintenance and reduce recovery operations, all from one integrated advanced user interface.
PDS is integrated with all the flavors of PTC. It currently interfaces with both the Wabtec and Siemens BOS (Back Office System). The system supports PTC ICD Version 6 and Version 7.
Advanced automation through end-to-end electronic delivery of mandatory directives and automatic implementation of authorities in dark territory for more efficient operations, allowing the user to control more territory and lower the operating costs.
Automated dispatching operations that eliminate human error. Reduced maintenance and operating costs. Safe and efficient rail operations.
