Tern Systems took part in the yearly WOW Cyclothon in Iceland last week. The event is a 1358 km long race around Iceland and is split into 4 person team relay, 10 person relay and individual category.
Tern Systems had a team in the 10 person relay category and they completed the challenge in just over 48 hours, improving the time from last year by impressive 4 hours.
Each year the race raises funds by pledges for the teams and competitors and this year Tern Systems is happy to have played their part in raising money for Hjólakraftur (Cycling Power), an organization which helps children and teenagers who in one way or another are losing in their battle against various lifestyle related diseases and cannot find their place in traditional group sports.
Tern Systems recently finished an important milestone when a Factory Training and Acceptance Testing was completed for the ATC systems for Bali and Surabaya airports.
A group of 23 professionals from AirNav Indonesia came to Terns’ headquarters for the training and FAT. During their visit we were able to get valuable feedback from our customer on our product for improvements.
Next phase of the project is on site installation, detailed operator training and system inspection. This will be done at Juanda International Airport in Surabaya and Denpasar International Airport in Bali this summer.
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.
