Market that we serve

Our customers design system & subsystems that include safety critical embedded SW such as door controllers, communication controller, signalling systems, brake systems, or integration of systems of positive train control.

They are typically OEM, Tier1 and Tier 2 suppliers, or operators of railway systems.

Challenge faced by our customers for rail safety

The railway sector demands meticulous attention to safety due to its complex infrastructure and operational requirements.

Compliance with stringent regulations alongside effective RAMS implementation and understanding on cyber-security newest threats and how to ensure secure safety-critical systems, are pivotal for sustainable rollingstock development and railway operations.

Majors railway critical systems that CS Canada is supporting :

  • Communication systems, operational center and data transfer (EN 50159)
  • Signaling and traffic management systems (like ERTMS)
  • Automation (like CBTC)
  • Energy supply
  • Rolling Stock and Electrification Systems
  • Passenger information Systems

In Support to our customers, CS Canada provides

Expertise and Offering

We navigate and interpret complex regulatory frameworks, including Transport Canada (for Canada) and the Federal Railroad Administration (for the United States), ensuring strict adherence to safety standards.

CS Canada RAMS experts work on standards such as ECSS, CEI61508, EN50126, EN50128, EN50129, EN50657 & EN50716.

Our services cover implementation and compliance to key industry standards such as EN 50126, EN 50128 and EN 50129 (CENELEC), adapting RAMS strategies to meet specific project requirements.

We help develop robust safety management systems (SMS) aligned with industry best practices, promoting a culture of continuous improvement in safety protocols.
Our experts work in particular on IEC 62443 & TS 50701 standards.

In addition, we offer the following security/reliability analyses:

  • Functional (PHA, SSHA), interface (IHA) and operational (OHA) risk analysis
  • Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA)
  • Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) at system and software level
  • Mitigation monitoring and validation (Hazard Log)
  • Final safety demonstration (Safety Case)
  • Predictive Reliability Model Analysis (RMAP)

Our consultants conduct comprehensive hazard analysis, risk assessments, and safety audits to identify and mitigate potential threats and vulnerabilities within railway systems.

We offer a turnkey product development or retro-engineering service for embedded critical systems and CTC, supported by our 200 engineers in North America, an offshore capacity and overall 60 000 worldwild. This service offers flexible models to meet your requirements, such as technical assistance on an hourly basis, on a fixed-price basis, etc.

The training targets developers, testers, project leads and  quality representatives  focusing on the development of programmable electronic safety systems within the rail industry.

Our training course  introduce you to the processes necessary for your role in the safety life cycle.
