Research & Dev

Zetica has an active R&D programme which underpins its commercial offerings.

Our highly skilled researchers use state of the art simulation software and have unique access to our test track and environmentally controlled ballast box facility.

We are proud to be associated with Liverpool University, Leeds University, University of Illinois, TTCI and Southampton University for collaboration on various grass roots and industrial research projects.

Our current research focus is in improved GPR modelling of fouled ballast materials as well as moisture mapping using complementary methods such as nuclear magnetic resonance.

In addition to developing new algorithms and continuously enhancing existing data processing streams, we also design and build our own equipment for trackbed surveying.

The highpoint of our efforts to date is the RASC® Pod, a fully integrated data capture platform which can be mounted on any flatbed.
