ENSCO Rail Inc. has acquired an enhanced user license to the VAMPIRE® Pro vehicle and track interaction software. The software will integrate with the ENSCO Rail Autonomous Track Geometry Measurement System to provide automated vehicle dynamics simulations in near real time to conduct digital twin analytics. As track geometry data is streamed to ENSCO Rail's servers, vehicle dynamics simulations of the client's fleet will automatically be performed. Results are provided in an automated fashion, highlighting locations of concern for ride quality and derailment risk and producing data for track degradation and maintenance planning, company officials said in a press release.

APTIM Corp. named David Hecht director of sales in the Northeast. Hecht has more than 45 years of experience in the construction industry, working for construction management, general contractor and professional engineering firms. He has led program and construction management teams to win some of the Northeast's largest projects, including Amtrak’s $25 billion Gateway program, APTIM officials said in a press release. Hecht also has developed specialized business lines in estimating and scheduling, as well as storm recovery, winning assignments with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and MTA New York City Transit. 

ClearBlade joined Trilogy Networks’ Rural Cloud Initiative, a coalition of telecom operators and technology providers committed to promoting and accelerating the digital transformation of rural America, ClearBlade officials said in a press release. As part of the initiative, ClearBlade will combine its Edge Data and Secure IoT capabilities with Trilogy’s connectivity offerings to optimize the agriculture supply chain by connecting millions of devices now used by U.S. farmers. ClearBlade is an IoT Edge application software company that serves several industries, including rail.
