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.
World ATM Congress in Madrid was a success for Tern Systems and Isavia. Our custom made stand with our volcano theme proved to be a hit as well as our fresh pieces of lava from the latest eruption in Iceland.
This year we had our TAS (Tern ATC Systems) on two type of displays and our TSIM (Tern Simulator) along with AWOS system from Insero. Furthermore, our mother company, Isavia had a presentation on the ADS-B implementation.
Our CEO, Magnús, drew out the lucky winners of our game for a trip to Iceland with Icelandair and Golden Circle tour with Reykjavik Excursions. Halvar Myrseth from NATCA was the lucky winner of the first prize and Jorge Dias from IFAIMA and Eugene Hoeven from CANSO won a book about Iceland´s hot stuff as well as decorative ice cube moulds.
World ATM gave us the chance to meet new prospective clients and current customers, as well as catching up with many of our partners. We thank you all who visited our stand and look forward to be in touch with you soon.
