Bogor - PR BRIN. How can we optimize Research Groups based on research activities? there are some things that should be given more attention. Each researcher does not have to join a particular Research Group (KR), he can just carry out independent activities without having to join the KR. The formation and existence of KR is a natural instrument to see potential, topic dynamics, researcher dynamics, etc. in the PR and OR environment.

This was disclosed by Laksana Tri Handoko, Head of the National Research and Innovation Agency, during the opening ceremony for the Discussion of the Aviation and Space Research Organization (ORPA) Research Program, at the Kusnoto Building, Bogor.

Programs and performance targets at OR and PR levels are not necessarily handed down to researchers and/or Research Groups. The formation of KR can be carried out in a bottom-up manner according to the needs of PIs / PJs who have research topics from various sources of funding or independently. This KR is a requirement for PIs / PJs to execute their research. The Head of PR and OR facilitates researchers who have good creativity in their fields.The creative world needs a review, so OR-PR must strengthen the competence capacity of researchers in related fields and have a network.

In order to be able to evaluate substantially at the process level, monev is needed, which can be in the form of weekly meetings, to identify problems.During the discussion meeting, the Head of BRIN also hoped that more and more researchers at ORPA could continue their studies to a higher level by continuously increasing the capacity of human resources (HR) researchers through various schemes, such as the BRIN Degree-by-Research.

On the same occasion, the Head of ORPA BRIN, Robertus Heru Triharjanto, and his staff, explained the latest progress of research activities within ORPA, which oversees 5 (five) Research Centers, namely; Rocket Technology Research Center (PRTR), Satellite Technology Research Center (PRTS), Aviation Technology Research Center (PRTP), Remote Sensing Research Center (PRPJ) and Space Research Center (PRA).

In research activities in the Aviation and Space Sector at 2 ORPA 2023 Program Houses, the results included Aviation Technology Innovation Prototypes and Space Technology Innovation Prototypes. Within the Program House, 79 Research Proposal titles were approved, namely 20 titles at PRA, 10 titles at PRTP, 9 titles at PRTR, 12 titles at the Satellite Technology Research Center, and 28 at PRPJ.

Heru also conveyed that ORPA's performance targets this year apart from producing 1 target Unmanned Aircraft Component Prototype, 1 target Prototype Manned Aircraft Component, and 1 target Prototype Satellite Component, will also produce a minimum of 150 international scientific publications, and 60 intellectual property.In the Satellite Research Program, BRIN will launch LAPAN-A4 next year, which will be introduced as the first satellite of the first constellation of the Nusantara Earth Observation (NEO-1), with the specifications of a 5 m resolution multispectral imager.

Various remote sensing data processing research and satellite technology will be produced with the operation of NEO-1, which will involve researchers at the Earth and Maritime Research Organization (ORKM) and the Electronics and Informatics Research Organization (OREI). Assuming that the entire satellite launch process goes smoothly, the NEO-1 data will enter the national remote sensing data bank managed at Pusdatin by the end of 2024. Until 2027, it is hoped that more micro-satellite components can be made in Indonesia, especially with the operation of the particle the BRIN accelerator, which can simulate various disturbances in the space environment on satellite electronic components.

ORPA will prepare a team of researchers who will be involved in satellite integration at partner sites, and prepare various software for standard correction and data utilization. , to be ready for use in 2026. The team involved in the integration of NEO-2, will become the human resources who will build NEO-3 in Indonesia.Heru further explained that this year's infrastructure needs are upgrading the Earth station in Rancabungur, Bogor.

In 2024 a new Earth station is needed to replace the Earth station in Rumpin, Bogor, which has expired. The new station will be built in Rancabungur, Bogor, which will become the center for the BRIN satellite antenna on the island of Java.The research program also includes a development schedule for the NEI (Nusantara Equatorial IoT) satellite constellation. In 2023 the design process for the NEI-1 satellite and its user terminal will still be carried out. It is hoped that the satellite components can be made in 2024-2025, in accordance with the funding conditions of BRIN and partners (joint development mode). In the same period the development of the user terminal is scheduled to be completed. Assuming stage

In Satellite Research Program, BRIN will launch LAPAN-A4 next year, which will be introduced as the first satellite from the first constellation Nusantara Earth Observation (NEO-1), with Specification 5 M Resolution Multispectral Imager. Various researches Remote sensing data processing and satellite technology will be generated with the operation of NEO-1, which will involve researchers at the Earth and Maritime Research Organization (ORKM) and the Organization Research in Electronics and Informatics (OREI). With assuming the entire satellite launch process is smooth, then the NEO-1 data will go to the bank national remote sensing data maintained at Pusdatin at the end of the year 2024. By 2027, more microsatellite components are expected can be made in Indonesia, especially with the operation of particles BRIN accelerator, which can simulate various environmental disturbances Space on satellite electronic components.

The second satellite of The constellation or NEO-2 planned is a satellite with a specification of 50 cm imager to be built under PPP scheme. For the program, this year a feasibility study was conducted by the BPK team together with Bappenas and the Ministry of Finance, and It is expected that the program can start in 2024. ORPA will prepare a research team who will engage in satellite integration at partner premises, and set up Various software for correction standards and utilization of data, to be ready used in 2026. The team involved in the integration of NEO-2, will be HR which will build NEO-3 in Indonesia.

More Heru explained this year's infrastructure needs are upgrading the Earth station in Rancabungur, Bogor. By 2024 a new Earth station is needed to replace Earth station in Rumpin, Bogor, which expired. New station It will be built in Rancabungur, Bogor, which will be the center of the antenna BRIN satellite on the island of Java.

In research programs there is also a schedule for the development of the NEI (Nusantara Equatorial) satellite constellation IoT). The year 2023 is still being processed design of the NEI-1 satellite and its user terminal. Expected components satellites can be made in 2024-2025, according to funding conditions from BRIN and partners (join development mode). In the same period e user development The terminal is alreadycompleted. Assuming the stage is passed and partners invested, NEI-2 to 10 satellites can be built and launched in the year 2025-2029. The development of NEI will produce many local satellite components and accompanying intellectual property.

Heru added One of the development of remote data methodsthis year is a platform for the design and monitoring of mitigation infrastructure flood. The PUPR-led project will be funded from Asian loans Development Bank starts in 2024. In addition, it is also currently middle Integration of methode of calculating raw rice fields using developed remote sensing PRPJ with field survey data conducted by BPS. This integration is planned Completed next year and become a standard platform for productivity statistics Indonesian food.

Until 2029, Various studies will be conducted on the characteristics of the remote sensing spectrum from various types of food and industrial crop objects, so that later it can created standard remote sensing platform for palm oil monitoring, mangroves, etc. Conceptually, a multi-input data science-based platform and Multi-output can be built to unify each of those applications. In response tothis, the head of BRIN suggested that a special RIIM be proposed for remote sensing platforms to DFRI. So that BRIN can make an Open Call for its development, which involves national potential, including universities high and PPBR.

In the field of key rocket technology development, ORPA in 2023-2024 will develop propellant (rocket fuel) that has higher energy, composite rocket tubes, and heat insulation In that year there is also planned to be training for prospective trainers (ToT) on solid rocket motor production technology from PRTR to defense industry. At the same time, design and simulation of the system are carried out with Rocket Control system, in accordance with the partner's request to develop a powerful and father reach rocket. Planned for 2025 to 2027, the design will be implemented in the RHAN450 prototype developed by the defense industry.

Heru also conveyed that ORPA's performance targets this year apart from producing 1 target Unmanned Aircraft Component Prototype, 1 target Prototype Manned Aircraft Component, and 1 target Prototype Satellite Component, will also produce a minimum of 150 international scientific publications, and 60 intellectual property.

Meanwhile for the manned and unmanned aircraft key technology research program, from 2022 to 2024, together with researchers from the Nanotechnology and Materials Research Organization (ORNM), a composite data base for aircraft applications, such as float N219A, UAV wings and body, will be built with researchers from the Energy and Manufacturing Research Organization (OREM).

It is planned that in 2025, the N219A composite float technology developed by BRIN will be ready to be integrated by PT. DI (Indonesian Aerospace), as a certified aircraft manufacture. For unmanned aircraft research, the key technological research for 2023-2026 will be on the autopilot subsystem, for 50 kg and 200 kg unmanned aircraft, which must comply with different aviation safety regulations. Research on the development of unmanned aircraft operating modes for various missions (observation of disaster/volcano areas, mapping, and smart farming) is also continuing, in collaboration with ministry/institutional and private partners.

Finally, related to program Space science research in 2023-2029, divided into the topics of Solar Phenomena, Environment Space, and Astronomy (Observatory), and Space junk (observation falling objects). Telescope at Timau Observatory planned to operate on the moon July 2023, so that usage planning for BRIN researchers and partners is being done. The phenomenon of the Sun, and its interaction with the Earth's magnetic field, affect the weather, both inside the atmosphere and outside the atmosphereer, which known as space weather.

The research focus is modeling with various machine learning schemes, to be able to create prediction of weather that affects the propagation of radio waves. As aircraft navigation systems increasingly rely on satellites, so do predictions Space weather is critical to mitigating interference with transmission the radio.

With more and more the large number of satellites launched, hence the handling of space junk is an important issue to ensure the continued use of technology Satekit. In cooperation with various international space agencies, Indonesia can be one of the observation points for Space Situational The awareness. (sh/rht/edt. akb)
