Network Rail awards place on Framework Agreement to Remote Aerial Surveys


Richard Allitt Associates Ltd (RAA) is pleased to announce that its ground breaking Remote Aerial Survey (RAS) business has been awarded a place on the national framework agreement by Network Rail for the delivery of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Services. RAS successfully bid to supply infrastructure inspection and survey services for a 3 year period. The inspections and surveys will cover post incident inspections/surveys as well as deliver regular maintenance inspections of the Network Rail asset base such as structures, embankments and overhead line equipment.

Principal Engineer Martin Allitt said: "This is an exciting development for the company and endorses our belief that UAV's have an immense contribution to make in the provision of more cost effective and safe delivery of sophisticated data and imagery."

Earlier this year Sussex based RAA Ltd became one of the first specialist engineering companies in Europe to receive Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approval to undertake UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) survey services, varying from the precise high quality topographic & thermal surveys needed for mapping and inspections to impressive promotional aerial videos and photography.
