On the 24th of August, Isavia Training and ATS Procedures finished validation and accepted Tern Systems latest version of the TSIM ATC training simulator, into operation. Isavia will immediately start using this version of the TSIM ATC training simulator, during training and re-training of air traffic controllers in tower, approach and en-route training.
Isavia Training and ATS Procedures have been using Tern Systems TSIM ATC training simulator for 12 years. In the Isavia training facility, TSIM is responsible for interfacing with Isavia’s operational systems, such as surveillance processing, flight data processing and datalink systems, providing data feed and response to messages such as coordination to adjacent centers. With the TSIM ATC training simulator, Isavia is able to maintain a high-fidelity training environment for air traffic controllers.
The TSIM simulator also provides a realistic visualization of airports, for tower training. At Isavia’s training facility, this includes Keflavík international airport, Reykjavík airport and Akureyri airport.
On 23rd of August, Tern Systems completed the upgrade of the TSIM ATC training simulator, at the Korea Airport Corporation (KAC) facilities in Jeju, South-Korea. KAC has been using the TSIM simulator for the training of air traffic controllers, in an environment that includes Tern ATC Automation System (TAS) and Tern Voice Communication Simulator (ComSim), for the last 5 years.
Along with the upgrade, KAC personnel received training in the operation of the simulator, with focus on new functionality added in this version of TSIM. Following installation and training, a site acceptance test was completed successfully.
Jeju airport is the second busiest airport in South-Korea, with close to 20 million passengers passing through it each year. On top of that, Jeju airport is part of the busiest air route in the world (Jeju – Seoul). The TSIM ATC training simulator allows KAC to prepare air traffic controllers during unit training, in the operation of the TAS system, that is the main ATC automation system for tower and approach sectors, at Jeju International Airport.
The main purpose of the ACC team at Tern Systems is to provide service to the Reykjavík Area Control Center (Reykjavik ACC). This includes support and development for some of the main ATC systems that the Reykjavik ACC uses in its daily operation.
Among these systems are systems such as the Isavia Integrated Situation Display System (ISDS) and the Isavia Integrated Controller Environment system (ICE) and Tern Systems is currently implementing the Eurocontrol Cat 062 ASTERIX standard for these systems.
These systems (the ISDS and the ICE) need to be compatible for the Eurocontrol ASTERIX standards CAT 062 in order to be able to process data from the newly acquired ARTAS tracker, which will replace the current tracker system “Radar Data Processing System” (RDPS), and to be able to process data from the ADS-B system.
On December 21st, Tern successfully completed the installation and testing of a new approach and tower ATC system at Sepinggan International Airport in Indonesia. Sepinggan Airport is situated just outside the city of Balikpapan and is the principal airport serving East Kalimantan area on the island of Kalimantan. The airport services over 65.000 aircraft movements and over 6 million passengers pr. year.
The system installed runs the Tern ATC Automation System (TAS) and consists of 4 approach controller positions, supervisor and analyzing positions and tower controller positions. It is equipped with all latest technology in ATC automation and will assist the ATC controllers to keep high security standards while maintaining an orderly flow of traffic in the region.
The Sepinggan Intl Airport is the 5th busiest airport in Indonesia and traffic has been increasing rapidly through the years. It has been important to helicopter services for the oil industry since 1960 and later on for domestic and then international air traffic. The airport has been undergoing total renovation where new terminals are being built and plans for runway extensions are in the pipeline. The system operation at Sepinggan is owned and governed by Angkasa Pura I.
Ommeron Aeronáutica S.L. and University Carlos III de Madrid have purchased a tower simulator center from Tern Systems for the upcoming ATC training in Madrid this fall. Tern will provide eight 3D tower simulators for ADI training with a possible extension to APP and ACC training in the coming semesters. UC3M will start the training in a brand new facility currently being finished for operation. The photo shows mr. Francisco J. Moreno, the director of Ommeron Aeronàtica and mr. Frosti Heimisson, sales manager of Tern Systems, signing the contract.
Isavia has implemented a new Radio Operator Simulator from Tern Systems. The simulator is used to train users on the Tern Radio Operator Flight Data System, RO-FDS, which is operated by Isavia’s Gufunes Communications Centre in Reykjavik, Iceland.
