The ERTMS unit of CLEARSY is passing a new major milestone, thanks to the acquisition on July 12th 2018 of the company ERSA (European Rail Software Applications) for which Patrick Deutsch was the cofounder with ERRI in 1998 and its Technical Director for 18 years. ERRI (European Rail Research Institute) was the body in charge of the creation of the first set of ERTMS/ETCS specifications for UIC in the frame of the A200 project.
This acquisition enables CLEARSY to access new markets, especially abroad. ERSA has a wide range of simulators for training (operational simulator or traffic simulator, EVC or DMI simulator), a range of test benches for onboard systems (ETCS OBU) or trackside systems (RBC), as well as software for an ETCS DMI for baseline 2 and baseline 3. Some tools (TSW, TSD) are also widely used in the frame of European projects.
Based in Strasbourg, in the heart of Europe, ERTMS unit of CLEARSY has started to be known for various activities such as the design of a tool facilitating the understanding of baseline 3 braking curves, and the development of software for the ETCS DMI SIL 2.
Both companies will combine their expertise and skills to harmonise our solutions and offer services and products ever more innovative and safe.
