Ansaldo STS has been awarded a Finmeccanica Innovation Award 2011 with the “G-SAE” project. A device that, using satellite signals, enables the position of a train to be defined with an accuracy such that it can replace the devices installed along the railway line. This positioning precision is achieved by reception from satellites in a number of constellations (GPS, GLONASS and, in the future, Galileo).

It represents a highly innovative solution, that may cause a revolution in the railway signalling market contributing to a more efficient management of rail traffic.
