Innovate tomorrow’s mobility

Are you facing new challenges ahead?
Looking to introduce new technology?
Or transferring an application from another industry?

Our interdisciplinary approach and the use of modern methods and technologies pave the way for rapid developments. We understand the legacy of the railway system and guide you on a path to successfully circumvent risks and problems.

Our feasibility studies underpin your innovations. To go beyond the usual requires partners with the necessary experience to create new and innovative new products.

Strategy support

Operating rolling stock is a capital-intensive business requiring long-term focus.  We provide all relevant long-term information for asset management, daily decisions and the development of a rolling stock strategy.

We offer the following services:

  • Plans for existing fleets
  • Operating plans
  • Investment plans
  • Risk analyses
  • Maintenance strategies

Procurement Management

Rolling stock procurement is complex and absorbs time and resources. We can assume responsibility for your procurement project or strengthen your existing team. In close cooperation with you, we develop a customized procurement strategy and use professional project planning tools to coordinate the entire procurement process. We support you either during the whole procurement process or on a specific specialized topic.

We offer the following services:

  • Tender preparation
  • Bid evaluation
  • Negotiation support

We have expertise in advisory, procurement, project management and integration of railway signalling solutions in line with the latest safety standards. Our distinct focus is on onboard systems but considering any Command Control and Signalling, CCS related technologies. We advise on operational aspects and we procure and integrate signalling systems for you.

We offer the following services:

  • Signalling advisory on operational aspects
  • Signalling requirement engineering and implementation concepts
  • Procurement and rollout support for ATP (Class-B, ETCS & CBTC), ATO or related challenges
  • On-board integration of CCS systems including radio technologies GSM-R / FRMCS, etc.

Test benches & facilities

The reduction of the testing time for newly built vehicles is an important element for the reduction of delivery time and costs. To test modules of rail vehicles before assembling of the whole vehicle PROSE has developed, built and delivered several test benches for rail vehicles.

We offer the following services:

  • Development of testing strategies
  • Creation of test protocols
  • Development of test benches according to customer requirements
  • Integration of test benches in existing test strategies
  • Software development for the test benches
  • Building and delivery of all needed components
  • Commissioning on site
  • Training of the test personnel
  • Maintenance of the test benches

Electrial & electronic engineering

PROSE designs customised electronic devices. We define system requirements in line with your needs and standards such as EN 50129 and 50155. From system design to type testing, we generate a device that fully fits its purpose. We define HV / MV / LV / TCMS architectures, train networks and function allocation, and handle the integration design of all subsystems on board the train. We design on-board electrical systems and provide mechanical design support

We offer the following services:

  • System analysis and design
  • Schematic design and electrical diagrams (HV-MV-LV)
  • Design of the printed-circuit board, subsystem and integration
  • Mechanical design and support integration
  • Electrical cabinet design
  • Firmware design
  • Prototyping
  • Functional test & commissioning

Mechanical vehicle and systems engineering

All starts with systems engineering which determines safe vehicle’s mechanical design. For vehicles to be built or modernised, we want to be your trusted partner throughout the entire development process, from conceptual to final design and during production.

Our mechanical department specialises in all kinds of rail-bound vehicles and offers engineering services for:

  • Development of vehicle-bodies, bogies and rolling stock components
  • Simulation of running dynamics, side wind stability, contact mechanics, and wheel-rail wear reduction
  • Stress and strength, crash, noise, and vibration analyses of rolling stock
  • Heat-transfer simulations and rolling stock fire safety

Our systems engineering offers services for:

  • Integrating systems and components in railway vehicles
  • Brake calculations
  • Load assumptions using running dynamics simulations
  • Gauging and kinematic analyses
  • Aerodynamics

Our Technical Documentation department offers services for:

  • PRO(doc) – Customised Online Documentation Library (Read more about PRO(doc))
  • Documentation services for user and maintenance manuals

We provide expert opinions in these fields and for accident investigations.
