Ukrainian Railways to protect its infrastructure with drones
A drone unit is being established by the Ukrainian Railways, Ukrzaliznytsia. Veteran railroad workers who returned from the war will protect the infrastructure
This is reported by the company's press service.
The Ukrainian Railways explained that this would help with security and allow veterans to apply their military experience to civilian work. First, a test unit will be created, and then the entire network.
The company signed a memorandum with the Kruk UAV Operator Training Center. The instructors will retrain railroad veterans: they will teach them how to pilot copters, engineering, and assemble and maintain drones.
The drones will be used to counter the theft of the Ukrainian Railways’ property at stations and tracks, as well as to record offenses, detect fuel theft from locomotives, inspect infrastructure, and investigate transportation accidents.
