Terma will supply new Surface Movement Radars (SMR) to Beijing’s new airport which is slated to open in 2019. Terma will complete the delivery of the SMRs with LES Nanjing, its local long-term partner.
Surface Movement Radars allow Air Traffic Controllers to monitor, advice, and instruct aircraft, vehicles, personnel etc. moving on the ground in an airport.
A radar is very suitable for this purpose as it operates independently of light conditions (day/night), visibility conditions e.g. fog, and possible precipitation e.g. rain and snow and covers a large area.
The SCANTER 5502 Solid State Surface Movement Radars is integrated into the airport’s Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) as the primary non-corporative surveillance sensor.
The new generation solid state SCANTER 5502 Surface Movement Radar from Term has already been ordered by a long list of major airports worldwide.
18 major Chinese airports including Beijing Daxing International Airport already operate Terma Surface Movement Radars.
