London & South East Section - Degraded Mode Working System (formerly Compass)
24 Sep 2020 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Section: London and South East Section
Chris Fulford is the technical lead overseeing the development of the Degraded Mode Working System (DMWS) (formerly known as COMPASS). Chris has been leading this development since the feasibility studies undertaken in later 2015.

Chris has a varied background in the development of industry projects including operations and rolling stock schemes, train radio development such as GSM-R, and signalling and train protection systems including rolling out the next generation RETB to fleets using the West Highland and Far North Lines, supporting development of ETCS, and as development manager for the TPWS system between 1998 and 2002.

Chris is going to talk about the DMWS project, its development history thus far and the challenges posed in developing a completely new system to be used to safely and efficiently control train movements when the primary signalling has failed. A key objective of Chris’ work on DMWS was borne out of TPWS, to maintain simplicity and avoid over-specifying functionality, utilising as much of existing systems as possible.
