Tern ATC Tower and Approach System installed at Adisucipto International, Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Tern Systems recently successfully finished a factory acceptance test (FAT) for a new ATC automation system for Adisucipto International Airport in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.  The airport is the 8th biggest airport in Indonesia, serving over 6.000.000 passengers pr. year.   

The system consists of 11 working positions in tower and approach configuration.  The system also incorporates recording and playback facilities, supervisor and technical support workstations amongst the controller working positions.

The new system comes equipped with a built-in AMAN (Arrival Manager) which is embedded into the operators‘ radar display and therefore does not require separate system or hardware to operate.  This is a brand new product in Tern Systems‘ product line and gives the controller a much better overview of the upcoming traffic.

Tern Systems have also succesfully finished the training of 7 air traffic controllers, 6 ATC Specialists and 4 ATC technicians.  A further training will continue on site when the installation of the system will commence in April 2015.

AirNav Indonesia, also known as Perusahaan Umum Lembaga Penyelenggara Pelayanan Navigasi Penerbangan Indonesia, was established on 16-Sep-2014.  Airnav was formed after the merger of the three main Indonesia Air Traffic Management providers: Angkasa Pura I, Angkasa Pura II and the Government Operated ATS. Airnav is a non-profit, state-owned enterprise. The organisation is responsible for providing all air traffic control services across the Indonesian Flight Information Region (FIR).
