WATM 2019: Canadian SCANTER heats up

12 March 2019

Nav Canada has put into service a new SCANTER 5502 solid-state surface movement radar (SMR) from Terma at Toronto Pearson International Airport.

This is the third SCANTER SMR in operation at the Canadian airport, but it includes a new feature to stop the accumulation of ice on the antenna while it spins. Heating elements automatically switch on when the temperature drops below a defined level. “When installed, this feature requires no additional maintenance,” according to Terma.
