Terma has been awarded a contract with Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) for the delivery of an Emergency Air Situation Display System for their air traffic control centers in Dublin and Shannon. The Emergency Air Situation Display System is based on the Terma TERADS BACKUP system (Radar Data Processing Display System) which was delivered to the Danish ANSP Naviair last year and went into operational use in December 2007 in connection with Naviairs cut over to their new air traffic control centers (in Copenhagen, Roskilde & Billund) and tower in Kastrup. The system operates as a hot standby emergency system (backup) to their main Radar Data Processing Display System. It has been important to IAA in their choice of supplier that Termas reference of the TERADS BACKUP system already has been approved by another service provider as an emergency system and that this service provider has the same main radar system as IAA. Nikolaj Kannik, Director, Sales and Marketing, Air Traffic Management, Terma A/S said The fact that it is the same system to be delivered to IAA as delivered to Naviair is an important milestone for Terma A/S. Naviair and IAA are both members of COOPANS whose members cooperate in order to harmonize procedures and standardize the respective ATM systems which are the foundation in the delivery of air traffic services.
