Rockwell-collins - ExecutiveMosaicThe Federal Railroad Administration has awarded Rockwell Collins a $4.9 million grant to install company’s passenger and freight railroad messaging network platform ARINC RailwayNet on railroads in the U.S.

Rockwell Collins will install the system on short line and commuter railroads and also develop a guide to help smaller railroads adopt similar tools in compliance with the Positive Train Control requirements listed in the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008, Rockwell Collins said Thursday.

Denny Lengyel, Rockwell Collins surface transportation system vice president, said the ARINC RailwayNet is designed to function as a common railroad communication infrastructure and information exchange through office applications and network connections.

Rockwell Collins intends for ARINC RailwayNet to help facilitate safety and reliability within the railroad industry.
