The heart of the rail crossings points also known as “frogs”, are a mechanical installation that enable a train to switch from one track to another.Frogs are subjected to repetitive impact collisions from the rolling stock.Such actions cause fatigue cracking which compromise the structural integrity of these safety critical components.For this reason, the EU infrastructure employs manganese steel at safety critical locations such as crossing. Railway sector involves companies that need to inspect railway crossing accurately and in time.SAFTInspect is the only solution that will warranty the total inspection of the “frog” and it will also monitor the evolution through time with a Data base (Big Data). SAFTInspect is based on a Synthetic Aperture Focussing Technique (SAFT) that facilitates for the first time full volume inspection of railway crossings devices in order to detect flaws on critical parts reinforcing the railway safety regions.SAFTInspect system will improve levels of safety for the railway industry preventing train derailments.Rail operators, underground operators, rail maintenance service providers and manufacturers, will benefit from our SAFTInspect innovative device that will be used both in pre-service and in-service analysis: Pre-service: SAFT Inspect will allow the manufacturer to control every asset produced and to offer a better service to its customers (100% of quality). No special infrastructure is required, no special skills from the user. In-service:Full volumetric inspection is more effective (90%). We will reduce 85% the total time per inspection and 94% on savings from labour costs. Cracks that occur during service will be detected at an early stage in their growth cycle.Therefore, we will eliminate the unnecessary cost of replacing frogs that are not damaged (savings around €1.89M per year). From a global perspective, avoiding unscheduled maintenance, rail operators will save up to €87.5M in penalties in Europe due to train derailments.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "SAFTINSPECT" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
