Tern Systems developed in cooperation with Isavia a new system (Isavia NOTAM System) to send NOTAM messages via ATFN terminal. The project started in 2014 but was taken into operation late April this year. NOTAM (A Notice to Airmen) is sent to alert pilots of potential hazards along a flight route or at the destination that could affect the flight.
The main difference from the legacy system is a database to store NOTAM, more efficient procedures and is supposed to minimize human error. Site Acceptance Test completed early April.
An important milestone was achieved with the completion of both factory training and factory acceptance testing for the Pohang ARTS project on the 4th of March. Valuable time with the end-users resulted in the ability to customize the ARTS to the needs that arose during the training. Cooperation is one of Tern Systems values and being able to satisfy customer expectations is of importance to us.
Next phases of the project include installation of the system, inspection, on the job training and site acceptance test. The TAS system will support multilateration which is being implemented for the Pohang Airport.
Tern Systems has won a contract to upgrade the current ATC Systems in Bali and Surabaya, Indonesia, with TAS. This contract means that there will be four International Airports in Indonesia equipped with TAS, for both approach and towers.
Juanda International Airport in Surabaya is currently the second busiest airport in Indonesia and Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali is the third busiest.
The airports will be equipped with Tern Systems latest-generation of Air Traffic Control solutions, including surveillance (radar and ADS-B) and Flight Data Processing, Safety Nets and Arrival Sequencing Tool.
The project has already started and is scheduled for completion before Q4 2016.

In February, a successful installation of a new version of the Tern ATC System (TAS) was done in the Control Tower in Keflavik and the Approach Control Center in Reykjavik for the ANSP in Iceland, Isavia. This was a large update containing an improved surveillance data processing, renewal of hardware and an OS upgrade. The update is a base for further development of the TAS system in use at Isavia, such as implementation of ADS-B, AMAN, Improved Short Term Conflict Alert, Multilateration Virtualization and Datalink.
Following a public tender for a ATC training simulator, Tern Systems has reached an agreement with ENNA – Algerian Air Navigation Services, to deliver and install TSIM – Tern Systems ATC Training Simulator.
The ATC simulator that Tern Systems will deliver will include 360° tower simulator, with positions for tower and ground controllers/students, four approach and area controller/student positions, six pseudo-pilot positions and two supervisor positions. Additionally, positions for exercise creation, data preparation, maintenance and system supervision will be provided.
TSIM – Tern Systems ATC Training Simulator, developed in cooperation with Isavia, the Icelandic Air Navigation Service Provider, is a mature and established product, deployed at several ATC training facilities around the world, such as in Morocco, Spain, Greenland, Iceland and South-Korea. Along with TSIM, Tern Systems will deliver TAS as the controller/student HMI. TAS is Tern System’s ATC Systems, supporting a broad range of air traffic control zones and a proven system through deployments in Indonesia, South-Korea and Iceland. For the tower simulator, a 3D model of Algiers Houari Boumediene International airport will be created.
Project preparation is already underway, with development scheduled to start in the beginning of 2016. Deployment, installation and training will be in the first half of 2016.
Tern Systems, in partnership with Shin Myung Power, has won a contract to install an ATM system at three airports in South Korea.
The new ARTS system is based on the Tern ATC Tower and Approach System (TAS) and will be installed at three airports at the east coast of S-Korea, Pohang, Uljin and Ulsan. The system includes approach working positions in Pohang, as well as tower positions at all three airports. Part of the project is to connect to a new MLAT system, currently in installation in S-Korea as well as providing an Electronic Flight Strip System.
In addition, Tern Systems will be providing a simulator to be used for training and testing at Pohang Airport.
The project has started and is scheduled for completion in October 2016. Once completed this project will bring the number of TAS equipped airports in South-Korea up to four, since Tern already has a system in operation at Jeju International Airport.
