As a leading provider of Airport Surface Movement Radars, Terma now counts 35 international airports with more than one billion passengers per year in the Asia Pacific region on its international reference list. More than 130 international airports around the globe are equipped with the company’s radars.
Among them is Jakarta-Soekarno-Hatta International Airport that operates the SCANTER 5502 SMR, an X-band, Solid State, 2D, fully coherent pulse compression radar with software-defined functionality. In total, the company has more than 400 of its systems installed at international airports on all continents.
Terma SCANTER radars secure safe transportation of passengers and cargo from the time the aircraft has landed until it is safely parked and ready to unload. Terma’s latest generation of high-tech solutions and products are developed and designed for use in extreme environments and situations and can now be supplied with an embedded tracker (ET2).
The purpose of the Surface Movement Radar is to maximize safety in airports by allowing Air Traffic Controllers to monitor, advice, and instruct aircraft, vehicles, personnel, etc. moving on the ground in an airport. A radar is suitable for this purpose as it covers a large area and operates independently of light conditions, visibility conditions, and possible precipitation.
