Tern Systems and Mittarfeqarfiit, the operator of airports in Greenland recently performed Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) for the Aries Weather system that will be deployed in Greenland later this year. Aries Weather is a proven Aerodrome Weather Reporting system developed by Tern Systems to operate in the harsh weather conditions around Iceland. Aries will be installed first at Nuuk Airport and will be followed by installations in 12 other airports across Greenland.

Traditionally, the Factory Acceptance Testing would be performed with the representatives of Mittarfeqarfiit at our HQ in Reykjavík. But as the COVID pandemic has restricted worldwide travel, our staff had to adapt and use online video-conferencing technology to perform the tests remotely. Our software engineers along with the operational experts at Mittafeqarfiit successfully completed the tests in two days.

We congratulate the team at Tern Systems and Mittafeqarfiit for their work to achieve this great milestone, and we look forward to future co-operation with Greenland airports.

The Factory Acceptance Tests were conducted online between Tern Systems and the team from Greenland Airports.

Today our Ops team delivered an important upgrade for our customer KAC in Jeju, South Korea. KAC had requested the release to be before the end of 2020, but due to the Covid-19 situation, an on-site visit for the upgrade was not possible.

Despite the prevailing circumstances, an important maintenance release was still required. To achieve it we agreed a streamlined scope that could safely be delivered remotely. KAC received a release candidate last Friday with which they upgraded their systems and performed a planned rollback.

Yesterday, the upgrade was rolled out with support from our Ops Engineer Thórir, and is now operational. Congratulations to all involved on a successful upgrade!
