ARINC to equip Metrolink with PTC subsystems

Posted on February 17, 2011

ARINC Inc., as part of a team led by Parsons Corp., will provide three key subsystems for the first Positive Train Control (PTC) system used on a U.S. commuter railroad.

Parsons Corp. is developing the PTC system for Metrolink, the 512-mile commuter rail system that serves the Los Angeles area.

ARINC will provide the computer-aided dispatch system with associated employee-in-charge terminals for the project, based on the ARINC Advanced Information Management (AIM) Rail Control software platform.

ARINC will also furnish the back office server for the project based on the AIM platform. ARINC is currently developing the server technology under a contract with Wabtec for three freight rail customers.

In addition, ARINC will provide the overall network management system for the Metrolink PTC system.
