The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Board approved a contract with Alstom Signaling Operations, LLC, to upgrade the agency’s Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) System, on Tuesday, May 26.
The DART SCADA System, a control system architecture that uses computers, networked data communications and graphical user interfaces for high-level process supervisory management, was installed in 1996.
Work will replace software, servers, workstations, tunnel ventilation control systems, an overview display wall and a cyber security program, as well as provide data backup with remote-site archive sub-systems.
Added capabilities will include multi-site functionality, multi-modal future integrations, Downtown Dallas (D2 Subway) Rail Project expansion, Silver Line Rail Project interface locations and new optical transmission network backbone compatibility.
