Ansaldo to equip Kawasaki, Bombardier cars with cab signaling

Posted on January 27, 2011

Ansaldo STS recently announced two separate contracts for U.S.-based cab signaling projects, totaling approximately $18 million.

The scope of the two contracts, one with Bombardier Transportation and the other with Kawasaki Railcar Inc., are to supply cab signaling for 100 and 364 vehicles, respectively.

Bombardier Transportation will provide 100 multilevel vehicles to NJ Transit, for which Ansaldo STS will provide the cab signaling.

Kawasaki Railcar Inc. is supplying Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority with 364 vehicles, which will have cab signaling from Ansaldo STS. Ansaldo STS’s contract with Kawasaki Railcar covers the base and available option for extra cab sets.

The systems are based on Ansaldo STS’s MicroCab cab signaling system, which will provide both customers with a complete Automatic Train Control (ATC) system. The ATC system is comprised of Automatic Train Supervision (ATS), Automatic Train Protection (ATP) and Automatic Train Operation (ATO).
