San Diego - At the Maritime Security 2015 West workshop and exhibition in San Diego, Terma displays a range of radar products to support a range of mission requirements.
Securing our borders, inland waterways, ports, and critical infrastructure has never been more challenging. On land or in a maritime environment, from security to safety, across the expanse of an ocean or along the narrow bends of a tightening river, Terma has a range of products to address a range of mission requirements.
The SCANTER Radar Series is a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS), X-band, 2D, fully coherent pulse compression radar that meets all levels of the International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) Recommendation V.128 on technical performance requirements for VTS equipment.
Through a combination of advanced technology such as Solid State power amplifiers (SSPA), multiple transmission frequencies (i.e., frequency diversity), pulse-compression, coherent integration, and cutting edge signal processing, the SCANTER Radar Series is specifically tailored to detect and track very small and large cooperative and non-cooperative targets in high clutter environments (i.e. high sea states) and under a variety of extreme weather conditions (i.e. heavy rain, fog), making it ideal for coastal surveillance, port and waterways management, and perimeter security solutions.
Built on a network-based open architecture, the SCANTER series easily integrates into new and legacy command and control systems or displays. The radar systems are engineered to provide multiple, simultaneous feeds, each of which can be optimized for a specific application. This allows a single sensor to support multiple operations such as providing an air and marine picture at the same time or a VTS traffic picture optimized for large shipping traffic while also providing a law enforcement picture optimized for detection and tracking of small contacts.
