TransPennine Express
My Station View

We created My Station View to 'increase customers confidence and enhance their experience' by providing rail users the opportunity to preview their journey before heading to the station. My Station View allows users to view real-time information about train arrivals and departures, as well as station facilities and accessibility information. Users can select their preferred station and customize their view to show the information that is most relevant to them.

Three TPE stations, Huddersfield, Hull and Manchester Airport were captured in the initial run. After the FOAK project's success, we continued working with TransPennine Express to capture and produce the remaining 19 stations which are now available to view on My Station View.

Network Rail
Tactical Incident Leader (TIL) Training

Over a 6 month period, Mission Room has been supplying our Cine rental systems to Network Rail to assist in their Tactical Incident Leader (TIL) training courses. Repeat installations in the North West, Midlands and East of England have taken place.

The ability to run XVR emergency simulation software on the system was a core reason for Network Rail choosing Mission Room technology and our willingness to fit in around their specific training regimes was also a factor.

Mission Room's flexible delivery concept allowed standard PowerPoint, enhanced (wide-screen) content and XVR scenarios on the same kit - this was very important for the training team.

SOFTWARE USED - Mission Touch • Mission Launcher • XVR


“Mission Room is brilliant because we can place our trainees into stressful scenarios and let them make mistakes without putting them at any real risk.” - John Arthur, TIL Training Lead, Network Rail

Construction Control Room

An interactive touchscreen and immersive experience is being used to enhance work on the Sellafield site, allowing easy access for the construction team to get inside the plans for the building and check for potential problems. This means that when work starts, they can be more sure than ever that there won’t be any hold-ups and resolve issues in advance.

SOFTWARE USED - Mission Touch • Mission Launcher


“The BIM cave allows 3D modelling and 4D planning to be executed ‘live’ on the site and enhances the project’s daily ‘line of sight’ planning by allowing people to visualise the plan and interfaces.” - Steve Harnwell, Head of Product and Residue Store Retreatment Plant, Sellafield Ltd

East Midlands Railway
Derby Training Academy

East Midlands Railway, run by Abellio, has invested in a Cine display system to help upgrade its Training Academy in Derby.
Mission Room worked with the Learning and Delivery Team to determine the system specifications and content needed to enhance training for both operational and customer service staff.

Specialist filming at Derby station and on their rolling stock enabled them to build previously unavailable training scenarios that took their trainees into the heart of realistic workplace situations.

Further content development is being planned over the next few years. 


"The Mission Room Team have been incredibly supportive with all our projects. It adds another dimension to training."Dave Stannard, Learning & Delivery Manager, East Midlands Railway

Enhancing apprenticeship training

Mission Room has partnered with NTAR (National Training Academic for Rail) to enhance their delivery options by integrating shared virtual reality through Mission Room's award-winning 360º technology.

The collaboration will facilitate an innovative approach to training delivery and support the continual development of future immersive training solutions.

 Mission Room supplies technology to enable NTAR to capture 360° video of real world situations, produce immersive training media and let students experience this in a 3m Mission Room Cube system.


"Mission Room will enhance situational training in a safety critical environment."Simon Rennie, General Manager, NTAR

Improving surveys and cutting costs

Greater Anglia has teamed up with Mission Room to efficiently conduct UK-wide station surveys required for the arrival of new stock rolling, utilising innovative 360° geo-referenced video technology. 

 The technology saves both time and money as well as positively impacting employee safety and de-risking the project.

With the introduction of new rolling stock, Greater Anglia were required to carry out station and platform surveys, which detailed platform by platform analysis to identify the various challenges or risks associated to the arrival of 3 new types of train on the UK rail network.

Greater Anglia chose Mission Room to complete surveys within a limited time frame without on-site visits. Mission Room's 360° multi-camera tech on trains captured footage of multiple stations. The software enabled 360° views with easy navigation, footage marking and output production. 


"The solution developed 'saves considerable time and resource not having to visit each station and carry out manual assessment'. The software allows the virtual placement of new trains and the full assessment of any risk without the need to go on site and the footage can be reviewed from anywhere to determine the most appropriate output." - Paul Stanforth, Trainways Limited 

“The review sessions provide many of the benefits of a large cross department team visiting each station individually. Without Mission Room this cross team collaboration would not be possible.” Rob Evans,  Greater Anglia 

Less time spent on site visits

The £1bn project (2019) by Network Rail electrifies over 300 km of routes in the North-West, providing better connectivity and faster journey times. The upgrades enable over 3.5 million extra passenger journeys a year and contribute economic benefits worth more than £4bn to the region. 

The NWEP team requires track access to inspect the location and condition of various route assets, which is hazardous and costly. 

Mission Room filmed and processed the route quarterly for two years, then using the four Mission Room displays and the Mission Room Explorer software, the NWEP team could virtually inspect assets and mark-up site images. The installation resulted in less time and money spent on site visits and a clearer understanding of their site.

Enhancing workforce safety

The A6 MARR Project was a complex highways project including a combination of new build, green-field development and railway interaction that involved numerous clients, contractors and consultants. The site was constantly changing and presenting safety issues, which was risky for visitors and workers to return. 

Mission Room provided a Cine display and a Desktop system to the main site offices to enable both induction and planning activities to be carried out. The systems were also used to explain the project status to interested stakeholders, including local residents and the local authority clients. An immersive capture system was provided to enable the client to upgrade and review footage.

The A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road Scheme (A6 MARR) provides 10 kilometres of new dual carriageway on the East-West route from the A6 near Hazel Grove to Manchester Airport and the link road to the M56. The project involved a joint venture between Carillion and Morgan Sindall. 

DISPLAY SYSTEM - Cine and Desktop 

bmJV M1 Projects
Better contractor inductions

Mission Room has provided bmJV Project a system for training and inductions to improve  the safety practices of workers going out on-site. The project is a joint venture between Morgan Sindall and BAM Nuttall that has been upgrading the M1 between J15 and J18, and marked a successful Mission Room debut into the highways sector. 

Following the successful trial of Mission Room, the same consortium has used Mission Room technology for other projects, including immersive inductions, toolbox talks and plannings. 

Highways England have highly commended the use of Mission Room technology on major highways project, and was awarded in the 'Safety, Health & Wellbeing' category of Highways England's Supply Chain Awards. 

“Mission Room has really impressed us and made a difference to the way in which we approach training and inductions. It provides a high level of interest and consistency that has engaged the audience with such positive feedback we have been compelled to adopt the Mission Room more widely on this and other projects. We feel that Mission Room will protect the safety and well being of our people working on the Highway, and are constantly looking for opportunities to expand its use.” - Terry Meadows, Senior SHE Director Transport & Highways, Morgan Sindall

M62 Project
Enhanced inductions

Following the successful completion of the M1-A5 Link Project, where Mission Room assisted with site induction, a Cine system was reinstated in 2019 on the M6 J13-J15 Smart Motorways Project for Kier Highways, working on behalf of Highways England. 

Mission Room was used for a combination of project and safety inductions as well as to assist with design visualisation. We also provided immersive route processing services across the busy mile stretch of the M6.

Balfour Beatty 
Digital Rehearsal HS2 and M4

Mission Room provided two Cube systems to assist with digital engineering on major projects, allowing them to explore in advance design and site issues in their project offices, as well as rehearse complex installation procedures and train staff for the workplace. 

Both project teams have been able to run their own software and developed their own content including a Unity based application for site safety training. 


“Working in conjunction with Mission Room Limited, our engineers are able to visualise and design a project before work commences on site” - Balfour Beatty 2019 Annual Report (p11)

3D Repo
Enhanced digital engineering 

3D Repo, developers of a market leading, cloud based, Digital Construction Platform, and Mission Room, creators of innovative 360° capture & visualisation solutions, launched a new integration to help the industry better collaborate on digital infrastructure projects.

With the latest version of the 3D Repo v3.0, users can access any of their 3D models directly from the cloud within any of Mission Room’s products, ensuring that the latest project information is always available and also allows for real-time collaboration regardless of location.

Engineers can quickly run real-time co-ordination and review exercises within the shared environment for tasks such as data analysis, issue tracking, clash detection and model differencing. This combined platform supports all major Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Building Information Modelling (BIM) formats including IFC, Autodesk Revit and Navisworks as well as Bentley DGN among others making it suitable for all projects in the built environment including buildings, civils and infrastructure.

Dr Jozef Dobos, CEO of 3D Repo said, “We are excited to work with Mission Room and we see their collaborative immersive environments as a natural extension to the way our users interact with 3D models. By placing multiple engineers into the centre of the design, they can work together more efficiently and communicate issues much more clearly.”

Dr Bryan Denby, Managing Director of Mission Room said, “When bringing new and innovative solutions to the market, we always look for partnerships that radically enhance the user experience. Working with 3D Repo adds a new dimension to our immersive displays and we know the new BIM & touchscreen capability will be of great value to our pool of existing infrastructure clients. .”

Deeper design understanding

Mission Room supplied a 3x3m Cube display system to allow the Skanska team to effectively step inside and walk through a digital rehearsal of the project, which consisted in delivering new school facilities for 1,500 pupils. Mission Room's technology gave them the opportunity to collaboratively review survey data, easily identify clashes and quickly resolve potential issues. 



Showcasing 100 years of quarrying history

Mission Room created 3 separate productions for the Institute of Quarrying’s 100th anniversary. They used Mission Room 360° technology to convey the environmental story in quarrying, the story of the Quarry Garden project that was exhibited at Chatsworth house as part of the Chelsea Flower Show and finally to represent quarrying over the past 100 years.

“The process of working with Mission Room was really straight forward, we went to them with an initial brief, we had some creative ideas of our own of what we were trying to achieve and the messages we wanted to get across. They then helped us to flesh out the details to make sure we got all the right things in there in the right place at the right time in order to make those films a reality.” -  Sarah Fry, Business Development and Communications Manager

Inspiring Open Days 

Hundreds of students explore Birmingham’s hidden gems without stepping foot outside the campus.

Mission Room have been supporting Birmingham University's marketing activities since September 2015 allowing prospective students to 'virtually' visit the city centre.

The University found that the main setback for prospective students choosing the University of Birmingham was their negative perception of the city. It was particularly difficult for the University to challenge these perceptions throughout their open days as students would generally only visit the campus and not the city.

Mission Room teamed up with the University to create a 360° experience that transported students into the heart of the city. The two-minute video allowed them to explore some of Birmingham city’s scenic areas and hidden gems without having to step foot outside the campus.


A unique Xmas experience

Mission Room teamed up with marketing agency RAPP to create a unique immersive Christmas experience for the children at Evelina.

Teaming up with RAPP, Mission Room created a virtual room where children could be transported out of their hospital surroundings without even needing to leave. Using our Cube display and immersive footage, they could stand on the moon, explore underwater coral reefs, take a ride in a hot air balloon and even step back in time to see dinosaurs!
