INTERFLO 50 - Voestalpine/ LogServ/ CargoServ, Austria

Bombardier Transportation was awarded a contract to supply an INTERFLO 50 track-selective DGPS positioning system for the private rail traffic operating within the voestalpine steel works area in Linz, as an enabling base of an Integrated Rail Operation System.

The INTERFLO 50 solution supplied uses very high frequency (VHF) radio modems with a polling rate of 30 vehicles per second for the data link between vehicles and the control centre.

Bombardier Transportation also equipped CargoServ's locomotives, pulling chalk trains on the railway network of the Austrian National Railways, OEBB. The data link in this operation is realised via GSM / SMS.
