Assalamualaikum Wr Wb,
Satellite industry milestone in Indonesia has started since 1976 and throughout its history has launched more than 13 satellites, and has been instrumental to unify the Indonesian archipelago which consists of thousands of islands, hundreds of languages and hundreds of millions peoples.
As the growth of Indonesian nation, the satellite industry has been active on various sectors, like voice and data telecommunications, advanced technology weapons to -backhaul cellular, Internet-backbone of the town to a village on the border, hundreds of television channels broadcasting via satellite, banking, oil and gas industry, agriculture, mining and many others.
Besides industrial satellite Indonesia also continues to innovate through a variety of groundbreaking either through satellite technology weapons used, range freq used such as c-band, ext-c-band, ku-band, L-band, S-band, innovations in the field of VSAT and ground segment and also through LAPAN has started building its own satellite known as LAPAN-TUBSAT, A2 and A3, which is mainly devoted to earth observation.
As part of the citizens of the world, satellite industry in Indonesia also continue to open up and collaborate more closely with the manufacturing industry in other country, regulation is relatively fair to foreign satellite operators, as well as a variety of other business cooperation for mutual benefit.
In addition it is also realized that the satellite industry is an industry that is full of risks, starting from the many possibilities of satellite and launch failures. But according to the principles of no-pain no-gain, then we believe all these risks in the future will make the Indonesian satellite industry is getting better and give biased domino-effect for the progress of the Indonesian nation.
