The Terminal will be to your right, up on the platform where an enemy is spray painting on the wall. To reach the platform, turn right from the locked door and go down the small set of stairs, use a silent takedown on an enemy in front of you and and turn left. There should be another enemy here setting up the Trap Arm on the wall, take him down as well and turn left where you should find the stairs that lead up to the platform.

Take the door behind the table and go straight, turn right and you will find an Ammunition Cache.
