ENSCO to equip Amtrak

Posted on September 12, 2012

ENSCO Inc. delivered the TrackIT Track Chart Management System to Amtrak. The web-based system hosts Amtrak’s official track charts and provides them as high-quality PDF digital copies or hard copies. The system is a module of ENSCO’s TrackIT Data Management System.

The system allows for easy updates to track chart information by loading Amtrak’s in-house asset database data on the application server, which updates the electronic track chart records. The password-protected secure website allows the user to query track charts for a specific location and to quickly export them to a PDF. TrackIT has the added benefit of allowing automated and autonomous inspection data to be shown alongside the track charts.

 “Online access to current infrastructure and inspection records is definitely the direction the industry is going,” said Boris Nejikovsky, ENSCO’s VP, Applied Technology and Engineering Division. “We are excited to be a leader in it and aid Amtrak in their data management goals.”

For more than 40 years, ENSCO has provided railway safety technologies throughout the world. The company is committed to the delivery of new solutions to improve rail safety and performance and is the industry’s premier source for track inspection, vehicle/track interaction consulting, railroad safety and security, as well as railroad asset management technology.
