Comprehensive dispatch and back office control

Increasing the efficiency of dispatchers through an integrated work environment.

TCOS is an integrated dispatch control solution that brings together multiple dispatching functions for Centralized Traffic Control (CTC), Track Warrant Control (TWC), Dark Territory (DT), and Positive Train Control (PTC) into one system for efficient train management. TCOS utilizes commercial-off-the-shelf hardware and software to create a system that is straightforward and easy to operate and maintain.
