Tern Systems is sponsoring a team of ten Tern employees in the WOW Cyclothon this year. The cyclothon is a non-stop relay bike race around Iceland, in teams of 1, 4 or 10 cyclists. The race is a total of 1358 km and takes place this year on June 23rd to June 26th.
The WOW Cyclothon supports a good cause each year, and this year they are cycling towards a physical activity center at the University Hospital’s Psychiatric department. Anyone wishing to sponsor the Tern team can do so here http://www.wowcyclothon.is/keppnin/keppandi?cid=5883 (in Icelandic only).
Go Team Tern!
On the 8th of May, Tern Systems successfully delivered the latest version of the Tern Systems’ ATC simulator (TSIM) to Isavia Training and ATS Procedures. The TSIM simulator provides a realistic training environment for the training of air traffic controllers.
The new version has been set up at the Kangerlussuaq Airport in Kangerlussuaq, on the west coast of Greenland. The airport is the largest airport in Greenland and is one of two airports that are large enough to handle large airliners.
Isavia Training and ATS Procedures will use the TSIM simulator for the purpose of training air traffic controllers in approach control, in an environment that also includes TSIM Situation Display and Tern Voice Communication Simulator (ComSim).
Tern Systems have successfully upgraded the Radio Operator Flight Data Systems in Gannet Communication Center in Gufunes, Iceland, and in Shannon Aeradio in Ballygirreen, Ireland. The systems now run on new hardware and operating system. In addition, the RO-FDS now has the ability to connect and interact with the newly acquired VCCS system from Rohde & Schwarz.
The RO-FDS has been in operation in Gannet and Shannon Aeradio since 2005. The systems are interconnected via a dedicated link which allows radio operators in the centers to cooperate in joint operation. The RO-FDS is used to aid radio operators in relaying messages to pilots from air traffic controllers and vice versa. The RO-FDS receives, sends, processes and displays messages and maintains a flight database.
Tern Systems holds a ISO 9001:2008 certificate, and as part of maintaining the certificate, we recently had auditors from DQS UL of Denmark conduct a recertification audit.
We are pleased to announce that the audit was successfully completed without any deviations, ensuring continued ISO certification of our management system.
