MTIA Signalling Courseware Development

Omada has been tasked to develop and trial five signalling testing courses, on behalf of MTIA’s Signalling Strategy Taskforce (SST).
The testing courseware will be developed by Omada and will provide objectively assessed pathways for local and international Signalling Designers and Testers

Our Green and Brown Land

Greenfield and Brownfield freight facilities are becoming a familiar part of Australian transport and freight development. Co-locating transport modes, with new large-scale warehouse facilities, that have connections to Australia’s Inland Rail network, require specialist knowledge, experience, and expertise. With core skills and the best rail system engineers, we are at the forefront of Signalling Design Services, on 4 Greenfield and Brownfield freight facilities in different parts of the country

Adelaide Signals Upgrade

Omada Rail Systems was delighted to work with Keolis Downer Adelaide recently to undertake signalling upgrades on the Outer Harbor and Grange train lines, on behalf of the Department for Infrastructure and Transport. Our engineers in Adelaide designed, installed and commissioned the signalling upgrades, which are contributing to the safety and efficiency of Adelaide Metro rail services on the line.
The Omada commitment to excellence in rail system services aligns closely with the safety culture of the Department and Keolis Downer, as they work to deliver enhanced train services for passengers

Specialist Skills

When it comes to Operational Systems capability, there are few specialist teams with the knowledge and experience that come from the Omada team. With expertise across all rail operational systems, Phil Beutel and his team, design and integrate complex Train Control and Rail Systems. This rare combination of talent also extends to software development, Data Processing and analytics, OT/ICT and Hardware Development. In the challenging world of integrated operational systems, Omada’s specialist team are also leaders in Asset and Conditioning Monitoring. At Omada, we are proud to have developed specialist teams like our Operational Systems team who work together to provide better and smarter outcomes for our clients
