Ansaldo STS already pioneering new technological trends:

Roy Hill example

Roy Hill 1

project area

The Roy Hill system is based on key innovative technologies


TETRA IP

Satellite
-
based localization with SIL4 accuracy


The satellite
-
based system relies on a new approach to
achieve SIL4 accuracy with the current satellite localizer
(LDS)


ERTMS L2 based architecture

Roy Hill 1 is a project by
Hancock Prospecting to
develop a new Iron Ore mine
and build the necessary
extraction and transportation
infrastructure


Giant size, low phosphorus iron ore
deposit, with 2,4B


tons of
resources


Posco (3

Roadmap for GNSS adoption


2012

2013

2014


SATLOC



GRAIL 2






3InSat

“The Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) can play a major role in the rail sector, both for fleet
management and rail safety (signalling and train control). The EGNOS and GALILEO would
fundamentally contribute to increase reliability and reduce cost of the ERTMS odometer …”

The 3InSat Project




Development and validation of a satellite
-
based platform compatible with the ERTMS
-
ETCS




Exploitation of new satellite TLC technologies




Adoption of GNSS and augmentation networks for meeting SIL
-
4 requirements




Managed by ESA




Roadmap up to the validation and certification phase

Benefits:




Increased network capacity/efficiency




Lower capex & operational costs




Prioritary applications

Local lines, low
-
traffic ,Regional
lines, new freight lines on a
world
-
wide level

3InSat features for satellite assets validation
on the test site:


Total length: approximately 50 km



Double track: to test train localization on parallel
tracks



Satellite localization system at SIL
-
4 level



Multi
-
bearer TLC network



Augmentation network validation



Test Procedures validation



Independent assessment by a NoBo (Italcertifer)


Possible future evolutions of 3InSat,
including tests on ERTMS using satellite
based localization, are under discussion
