Airport ground surveillance

For more than 60 years, Terma has been a leading and preferred primary sensor supplier to non-cooperative surveillance solutions such as A-SMGCS. Our references comprise more than 400 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 is it 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.

The SCANTER 5502/5602 is an X-band, Solid State, 2D, fully coherent pulse compression radar with software-defined functionality.
The outstanding capabilities of the SCANTER 5502/5602 ensure reliable detection of very small targets and produce an overall clear, well-defined, high-resolution radar image of the coverage area, day and night and in all weather conditions.

The SMR features surveillance capabilities in accordance with ICAO 9476-AN-927:

  • Radar monitoring of traffic on the maneuvering area.
  • Routing instructions to surface traffic using the radar-displayed information, to avoid points of traffic congestion and select aircraft routes to maintain traffic flow.
  • Issuance of instructions to hold short at intersections to avoid traffic conflicts.
  • Information that a runway is clear of other traffic, particularly in periods of low visibility.
  • Assistance in timing of runway operations to improve runway utilization while avoiding conflicts with departing and arriving aircraft.
  • On request, guidance information to an aircraft uncertain of its position.
  • Guidance information to emergency vehicles.

A-SMGCS integration

The SCANTER 5502/5602 networks in an IP-Network structure and is designed to integrate and form part of an airport A-SMGCS performing single- or multi-sensor operation.
