Aarhus, Denmark, 6 December, 2017 – Terma has been contracted by Avinor AS to upgrade two of the existing Terma Surface Movement Radars (SMR) at Oslo Gardermoen Airport. With the already installed SCANTER radar system, Oslo Gardermoen Airport will operate three of the new generation Solid State SCANTER 5502 Surface Movement Radar from Terma.

The award also reflects a sign of the long-term relationship between Avinor AS and Terma where Oslo Gardermoen Airport was the first airport in the world to implement a so-called Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS). The SCANTER 5502 Solid State Surface Movement Radars is integrated into the airport’s A-SMGCS as the primary non-cooperative surveillance sensor.

The purpose of the Surface Movement Radar is to maximize safety in airports by allowing Air Traffic Controllers to monitor, advice, and instruct aircraft, vehicles, personnel, etc. moving on the ground in an airport. A radar is very suitable for this purpose as it covers a large area and operates independently of light conditions (day/night), visibility conditions, e.g. fog, and possible precipitation, e.g. rain and snow.

Terma Surface Movement Radars are in operation at most major world hubs such as Dubai Intl., London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Paris CDG, as well as Beijing Intl. A total of +130 international airports around the globe are equipped with SMR radars from Terma.
