French term or phrase: "porteur" & "terrain"
Here is an extract of the context:
"Le porteur (ATPSPH) est positionné à Z=40 mètres.status collision porteur = 0
Le porteur descend progressivement.
A Z=20 m au-dessus du terrain, il touche le sol :status collision porteur = 8 (collision terrain)"
Is terrain = field and porteur = carrier?

Explanation:
Absent further context, I'd agree that "porteur" = "carrier."
I would also suggest: "il touche le sol" = "it touches down", and
"collision terrain" = "collision with the ground," with
"collision porteur" = "collision with the carrier."
