Australia system wide communications systems for CargoSprinter

CargoSprinters will operate in a variety of situations throughout Australia. Their low environmental impact and nimble operation favours operation in busy Metropolitan areas while their ability to split and amalgamate on country lines suggests a busy rural operating schedule. A train with this level of flexibility, operating in a cost sensitive market, requires a communication system that will satisfy the commercial needs of its operators as well as the demands of the track access providers. Some novel techniques and a range of technologies have been employed to create a train communications system that is capable of satisfying each of these requirements at low cost. We describe the technology used and its relevance to the operator and operating crew.
