Level crossing safety remains one of the highest-priority areas of improvement targeted by railway infrastructure operators. A particular challenge lies in providing cost-effective solutions in remote, low-density traffic sections of the network.

SAT-LX is a satellite-based advisory warning system to improve safety in these areas. It can be combined with existing railroad crossing solutions or serve as a complete solution for improving safety in rural locations.

The system maintains an up-to-date database of train positions and calculates the time of arrival for trains at railroad crossings supported by the system. Calculations are based on position and line speed (plus, actual speed, when available).
