Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Ministry of Industry, along with the Association of Unmanned Systems and Technology (ASTTA), facilitated several drone industries in Indonesia to display their products at the 2022 Industrial Transformation Asia-Pacific (ITAP) in Singapore.

Apart from showcasing technological capabilities of the drone industry in Indonesia, which has become increasingly advanced, this opportunity can also build international cooperative relations.

"In line with digital transformation in various aspects of the economy, the Ministry of Industry continues to support development of the domestic drone industry to be more innovative and competitive," the ministry's Director General of Metal, Machinery, Transportation, and Electronic Equipment (ILMATE), Taufiek Bawazier, noted in a statement here, Tuesday.

Bawazier remarked that the drone industry in the country was able to develop and produce various types of drones that can be used for surveillance, plantations, and the military.

"We must master this technology to maintain state sovereignty and support the government's vision in implementing Making Indonesia 4.0," Bawazier emphasized.

Furthermore, the transformation has become an obligation for industry players everywhere, including utilizing drone technology to support the production process, he stated.

"This is the basis for our collaboration with ASTTA to participate in the 2022 ITAP activity," he remarked.

The 2022 ITAP is part of a series of the 2022 Hannover Messe activities that will be held on October 18-20, 2022, in Singapore, with the big theme of “Industry 4.0 for Business Sustainability.”

This event aims to promote industrial products as well as bring together technology companies and institutions from various countries, including the drone industry and logistics, which are one of the sectors grabbing attention at the annual event.

The five drone companies from Indonesia participating in the 2022 ITAP are PT Innovasi Solusi Transportasi Indonesia (FROGS) that displays drone sprayer products for agriculture, PT Bentara Tabang Nusantara (BETA) and CV AMX UAV Technologies (AMX UAV) that carries VTOL drone products for mapping, PT Aria Agri Indonesia (ARIA) that will demonstrate drone systems and IoT technology for agriculture, and PT Terra Drone Indonesia (TDID) with LiDAR sensors for mapping.

The ministry's Director of the Maritime Industry, Transportation Equipment, and Defense Equipment (IMATAP), R. Hendro Martono, said that the use of drones in Indonesia was becoming the center of attention in the Industry 4.0 era.

"Along with the very rapid development of technology, strategic steps are needed in the development of drones in the country to achieve independence in the provision of supporting components," he stated.

Meanwhile, General Chair of ASTTA, Dian Rusdiana Hakim, lauded the steps taken by the Ministry of Industry to bring several drone industries in Indonesia to participate in international events, such as ITAP.

"I hope that many strategic collaborations, both through business-to-business and business-to-government, would be established through this activity. We hope our industry would continue to develop and become a global player," Hakim added.

BALI, itb.ac.id--PT Dirgantara Indonesia established a Joint Commitment collaboration with the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) on Monday (21/11/2022) in Bali. The collaboration was held in a series of events at the Indonesia Development Forum (IDF) 2022.

President Director of PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI), Gita Amperiawan and Rector of Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), Prof. Reini Wirahadikusumah, Ph.D., signed a Joint Commitment in building a competency center in the field of aircraft design, witnessed directly by the Minister of National Development Planning /Head of Bappenas, Suharso Monoarfa.

In order to build and realize the Republic of Indonesia as an aircraft design competency center, PTDI and ITB agreed to build a joint strategy to improve and maintain Indonesia's interests in involving and optimizing the utilization of its human resources in the aircraft development process by a global Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).

In addition, PTDI and ITB agreed to jointly develop sustainable aircraft design competencies, through domestic aircraft and aerospace development projects.

"Something that is very mandatory for the industry is development, in the current situation where development is very expensive, then collaboration is very important. The collaboration between PTDI and ITB in terms of R&D will certainly be business-oriented and how we are able to meet existing demands. The scope has no limits, but the most important and top priority is the N219 and N219 Amphibious programs, and one of them is also we want to build a collaborative design center," said Gita Amperiawan, as released by PTDI Public Relations.

This collaboration is a form of initiative from PTDI and ITB to provide space and opportunities, as well as a forum for the development of the design industry in Indonesia, so that then the ideal of mastering high technology of aircraft can be pursued in a faster, more precise and feasible time.

"From the ITB side, this is not only ordinary teaching and research, but also must be towards product down streaming, this is in line with the roadmap developed by the State. The link and match between universities and industry has actually been made before, but with this commitment, now the implementation has become more concrete," said Prof. Reini.

She continued, PTDI and ITB will work on joint projects carried out in the same physical facilities, as is the trend of business models that have occurred in developed countries, where universities and industries will work mutually.

Rector said the linkage between industry and universities requires a medium and long-term roadmap and planning. However, ITB believes that the Government, especially the Ministry of National Development Planning, can play a key role as a regulator, facilitator, and enabler. "We hope that the linkage between PTDI and ITB, facilitated by the government as an intermediary, can bring Indonesia's industrialization process to a new phase, which is accompanied by strengthening Indonesia's innovation ecosystem," she explained.
