Indonesia Readies Maritime Defence with Tech

According to Ismail, Director-General, Postal and Information Technology Equipment Resources, the Ministry of Communication and Information together with the Indonesian Navy (TNI AL) have collaborated to strengthen the controlling process of the nation’s frequency spectrum control. The two parties also collaborate on human resources and offer mutual data and information support.

The data and information that we will be prepared to support data related to activities – we call it electronic warfare. But basically, this is an effort to prevent and monitor various ships and users of the radio frequency spectrum at sea,” Director-General Ismail explained. He emphasised that cooperation with the Indonesian Navy is a great way to help each other with data and information availability. Given that this collaboration also serves to strengthen the ranks of Heads of Monitoring Centres throughout Indonesia.

The state of the aviation radio frequency spectrum was highlighted by Director-General Ismail. According to him, the supervision carried out by the Directorate General of Post and Information Technology (SDPPI) of the Ministry of Communication and Information is still under control due to the use of routine tools and processes.

According to Director General Ismail, the prevention system for flight communications is certainly carried out together with the Indonesian Navy, especially in the middle of the sea. He emphasised that through a cooperation agreement the implementation was also carried out in the field.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Communication and Information is pushing the implementation of Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) migration to Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). This was intended to be able to improve the performance of internet service access in the country according to the latest needs. IPv6 is one solution to overcome the availability of so many reliable address numbers and it can guarantee better data integration and security. The socialisation of the use of IP numbering version 6 also held very intensive discussions with the entire industry.

In addition, the Ministry of Communication and Informatics must also identify one by one, so that this timeline is in accordance with the readiness of all industrial lines. One of the targets to be implemented in the future is to classify cellular operators and service providers for internet access.

Furthermore, Indonesia is developing new renewable energy sources, beginning with hydro, wind, solar, and geothermal power plants. This government’s commitment is also reflected in the inclusion of energy transition as a priority issue for the Indonesian G20 Presidency this year.

Airlangga Hartarto, Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs, stated that the G20 Forum was creating a financing mechanism for the development of new and renewable energy (EBT) through international financing. Cooperation can be carried out on Indonesian EBT projects that are based on geothermal, hydropower, wind turbines, and solar panels.

It should be noted that Indonesia is attempting to reduce emissions in the energy sector by gradually phasing out coal to achieve Net Zero Emissions by 2060. To accomplish this, an Energy Transitions Mechanism (ETM) policy in the form of Cap and Trade and Cap and Tax has been developed.

The ETM policy is a transformative approach that employs blended finance to accelerate the phase-out of existing coal-fired power plants and their replacement with clean energy.

It is hoped that this Green Energy Transition Roadmap will aid in the achievement of the Net Zero Emissions target by 2060 while also promoting a fair and affordable energy transition for the Indonesian people and government, as well as providing investors with a business climate certainty.
