Network Rail Air Ops UAS Framework

Remote Aerial Surveys from Richard Allitt Associates Ltd have been drone operators for Network Rail since 2014. In 2019 RAS were awarded a place on Network Rail’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Framework for the delivery of UAS services nationally for the next three years

This means we are one of only four commercial drone operators with permission to fly over Network Rail infrastructure. Read more about Network Rail Air Ops here

Here are just some of the projects we have worked on either directly for Network Rail or for end clients:

  • - Topography survey for improvement works

  • - Survey of railway tunnel ventilation shaft

  • - Weather vane inspection at Kings Cross Station

  • - Condition Assessments, station/sidings roof inspections

  • - Progress Reporting of flood mitigation works
