The mass movement of people and goods creates some of the most complex challenges known to society. Solving these problems calls upon a wide and diverse selection of skills, capabilities and tools, from Digital Transformation, Engineering and asset management, Cyber Security and Data Management through to hybrid propulsion systems and analytics.
We harness experience, skills and capabilities from across the breadth of BAE Systems. We call upon the collective capabilities of over 80,000 employees, and the engineering and asset management capabilities to solve the transit problems businesses and societies face, both today and in the future.
We are proud to deliver the core systems that protect and power the UK’s transport network – helping our clients to get people and goods to where they need to be safely and efficiently.
In London, we’ve worked with TfL to design, develop and maintain the TfL.gov.uk website, and the open data API that powers a myriad of third party travel planning applications. We also delivered the Get Ahead of the Games website for the 2012 Olympics and CabWise, a mobile app for London black cab users.
To improve train throughput, whilst maintaining safety, we have delivered High Integrity systems that are in use in London, and internationally, providing train control and protection systems. To improve the efficiency of rail planning, we are delivering the next generation Rail Timetabling System into TfL. More widely in London, our communications equipment are helping to keep passengers safe, and our simulators have been used to train tube drivers.
Alternative power for road and rail
Our hybrid engines power a quarter of the London bus hybrid fleet, and our data solutions are increasing the efficiency of bus services. In North America, our HybriDrive electric propulsion systems power 8,000 trains and 4,000 buses.
Digital Transformation of the UK rail network
Our teams have helped to deliver a first of kind Industry Architecture for the Digital Railway, providing a blueprint for delivering the integrated Railway of the future.
We’ve created a high fidelity 3D digital model of the UK’s railway network using helicopter laser surveys, to improve the safe and efficient operation and planning of the railway.
Today, our mobile solutions are used by trackside workers to visualise data that helps them to maintain the railway in a safer and more efficient way.
We are Network Rail’s Cyber Security and Business Intelligence partner for CP5, providing services to protect the operation of the network, delivering data sharing and analytics solutions, and enabling digital transformation in freight to improve industry collaboration.
21st century roads
We have worked with Highways England for over 15 years, providing IT and Operational Technology cyber security and consultancy support for some of their largest traffic technology programmes – including the National Roads Telecommunications Service (NRTS), the IP network that runs alongside the motorway and trunk road network in England. We also work closely with Highways England in the delivery of their IT estate, as their Service Integration and Management (SIaM) partner.
Supporting the aviation sector
We deliver electronic systems that support commercial airline jets, have delivered public consultations for the UK’s Department for Transport (DfT) and NATS, as well as co-owning Air Astana, the national airline for Kazakhstan. We are also working with Heathrow Airport on a number of projects.
Bright ideas that result in happy travellers and secure and efficient transport networks have to be built on high-performing asset management, engineering and technology, and we deliver all of these things.
