With several subsidiaries in Europe, Singapore and India, Danish defence and security group Terma (Stand 03-C14) has just opened an office in Abu Dhabi.

“For the past 10-15 years, Terma has supplied radar systems and airborne solutions to the Middle East region in close collaboration with regional partners,” said Jørn Henrik Rasmussen, vice president, Terma Global. “Opening a permanent presence here was a natural next step.” As far back as 2003, Terma delivered the first surface movement radar and Scanter 2001 radar to Abu Dhabi International Airport. Since then, the company has provided Dubai, Bahrain and Qatar with its state-of-the-art solutions, radars and automated terminal information systems.

Terma is showcasing its T.react Critical Infrastructure Protection system here at IDEX, which provides a total metre-by-metre coverage of large areas. By analysing and fusing overlapping data from multiple intelligent detection sensors and cameras, it can identify threats inside and outside a perimeter.

A demonstration site was established in Bahrain to show the system in operation by means of live scenarios. Terma and Lockheed Martin have partnered to field the T.react CIP at Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training facility in Owego, New York.

Besides the Scanter radars, Terma is also showing its naval C-Flex command and control solution, and its 3D Audio, which provides air crews with significant situational awareness and speech intelligibility enhancement.
