Terma to Supply Radars to Four More Indian Airports

Our Bureau - : Feb 7, 2024 - : 10:20 pm

Terma is set to provide SCANTER 5502 Surface Movement Radars (SMR) for four major Indian airports in Bengaluru, Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, and Hyderabad, according to the company’s press release on Wednesday (Feb. 7). The order will add the Danish company’s SMR presence in India, already comprising eight radars in four major airports.

“We are excited to partner with Indra Sistemas on the deployment of our SCANTER 5502 Radars in four major Indian airports,” said M Asif Makandar, Head of Indian Office at Terma India. “This underscores Terma’s commitment to advancing aviation technology in India, ensuring safety, and contributing to the nation’s dynamic aviation sector.”

In addition to the well-known SMR services already present in India, Terma also offers Enhanced SMR (eSMR) which represents an advancement in surveillance technology, enabling the integration of Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control Systems (A-SMGCS).

Through the utilization of software-defined radar systems and advancements in digital signal processing, eSMR enhances the processing capacity for surveillance inputs. This augmentation results in a notable improvement in situational awareness capabilities which helps overcome the transition challenge for the aircraft’s final approach.

Terma’s SMR involvement in India dates back to the installation of eight SMRs in four major airports: Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Chennai between 2008 and 2010. The company’s SCANTER 5502 radars thus play a crucial role in bolstering the operational capabilities of these key Indian airports.
