At Thales in the UK, we manage our Train Protection and Warning System (TPWS) solution, which has already been keeping UK passengers safe for over 15 years. You can learn more about the safety benefits and functionality of TPWS below.
Train Protection and Warning System
Our Train Protection and Warning System (TPWS) is designed to reduce the likelihood and consequences of a Signal being Passed At Danger (SPAD), or a train exceeding permissible speed, either at a permanent speed restriction or on the approach to a set of buffer stops.
