Sperry is a private company that contracts with various railroads to do ultrasound testing on the rails to check for metal defects and failures before they become major problems. Sperry's equipment is specialized, and the inspections are required periodically, so most railroads opt to contract with the company rather than retain the equipment themselves. There are exceptions, of course.

Sperry is located in Danbury, Ct.
