GENERAL

To carry out these vital missions for our country, the Balitbang KP has provided its experts with a host of high-tech resources from one of the world leaders in the field, the French satellite system operator and space services provider CLS (Collecte Localisation Satellites). The company, a subsidiary of the French Space Agency (CNES), custom designed this facility, the only one of its kind in the world. Our marine resources forecasting and management center now boasts the world’s most advanced IT and algorithm development. It receives the most precise and relevant Earth observation data there is. The INDESO center also uses precursor models for forecasting the ocean and predicting changes in marine resources for the purpose of sustainable management. The French and Indonesian teams spent several years developing the project, getting it off the ground and making it operational. More than 100 scientists, engineers, operators and project managers now work here every day. The center’s mission is to predict changes in our fishery resources, protect them (mainly from illegal fishing) and also to develop them.
