POLESTORM goes UK wide

FLAC, Airbus Defence & Space and Network Rail have now completed extraction, collation and reprocessing of data captured as part of NR’s nationwide LiDAR survey, such that our POLESTORM environmental risk control system is becoming operational throughout the UK rail network. It is supported by FAILSAFE, our model designed to protect against derailment caused by fallen trees. FLAC has worked closely with new technology partner ADS on all aspects of the two systems, further cementing our working relationship in this important new area of natural hazard management.
