Bangladesh’s Mongla port to get Scanter radars

17th May 2019 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Terma has been selected to supply three Scanter 2202 vessel traffic services radars with 18 and 21ft antennas for deployment in three different sites along the Port of Mongla in Bangladesh, the company announced on 14 May.

The systems will be operated by the Mongla Port Authority, Harbor and Conservancy Department to monitor traffic in the second busiest seaport in Bangladesh and one of the major ports of the Bengal delta.

Terma’s Scanter 2202 offers high performance in a small footprint. The Scanter 2000 series is an X-band, 2D, fully co­herent pulse compression radar, based on solid state trans­mitter technology with digital software-defined func­tionality. The outdoor transceiver unit can be placed up-mast close to the an­tenna to minimise waveguide loss be­tween antenna and transceiver. 

The radar provides detection of small targets in all weather conditions.

Scanter radars for vessel traffic system applications have previously been selected for use in Bangladesh’s Chittagong port.
