This article has provided a summary overview of the ATMS PTC system being developed for the ARTC. Discussed herein is the phased approach being taken to develop and roll out the system in the project territory. A system overview and system architecture description as well as a description of each of the major subsystems have been provided. ATMS can provide substantial operational benefits as outlined herein, and benefits that can be similarly realized in both domestic and foreign rail applications, and for both passenger and freight trains or a mixed combination of operations. The system provides a means of automating rail movements and increasing both system capacity and network velocity. Additional information on the ARTC and the ATMS can be found at the Web site http://www.artc.com.au.
