CSXT awards contract to Union Switch & Signal

Posted on February 26, 2003

CSX Transportation (CSXT) awarded a contract to Union Switch & Signal (US&S) for the design, implementation, integration and installation of its next generation dispatch system for the Kenneth C. Duford Transportation Center in Jacksonville, Fla. The program will eventually replace the current CSX dispatching system originally installed by US&S in 1988 by migrating the functionality in a four-phase approach. Phases one and two will involve the migration of the centralized traffic control and dark territory control applications from the current VAX-based system to the new US&S distributed Unix-based platform. Subsequent phases of the project include the migration of the train message/bulletin and train sheet functions.
