Basarnas AFTN system

The existing AFTN infrastructure was used for a Search And Rescue (SAR) network. As a prime contractor for the project Inster contacted Tern Systems to supply a customized AFTN solution for the BASARNAS – the Indonesia Search and Rescue agency. The AFTN solution receives SAR messages from radio and satellites, and stores and forwards the message via the AFTN towards the BASARNAS central in Jakarta. There are 26 remote sites with AFTN Terminal, AFTN Gateway and customized AFTN radio interfaces installed around Indonesia. In the central located in Jakarta, one redundant AFTN switch and 16 terminals are installed.
