Indonesia begins sea trials of first SIGMA 10514 frigate

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
18 July 2016





Key Points
Indonesia has begun sea trials of its most complex indigenously assembled warship to date
The platform is on track to be delivered to the Indonesian Navy in January 2017
Indonesian state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL has begun sea trials of the country's first SIGMA 10514 Perusak Kawal Rudal (PKR) guided-missile frigate on order for the Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut, or TNI-AL).

The vessel, which will be the future KRI Raden Eddy Martadinata (331), began its sea trials in the week starting 11 July in waters off Ujung, Surabaya. The trials included a speed test, a crash stop test, and turning manoeuvres, the company told IHS Jane's on 18 July.

Raden Eddy Martadinata was launched by PT PAL on 18 January at the company's shipyard in Surabaya. The frigate is one of two platforms being constructed jointly by Dutch shipbuilder Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS) and PT PAL under a contract signed with the Indonesian Ministry of Defence in June 2012.

According to specifications provided by PT PAL, the PKR frigate has a standard displacement of approximately 2,400 tonnes, can accommodate a crew of 120, and it can hold a 10-tonne helicopter on its flight deck. The platform has a top speed of 28 kt, a maximum range of 5,000 n miles at 14 kt, and a standard range of 4,000 n miles at 18 kt.

Raden Eddy Martadinata 's weapons include an Oto Melara 76 mm main gun, launchers for MBDA MM40 Exocet Block II anti-ship missiles, six (two triple) Eurotorp B515 torpedo launchers, the Rheinmetall Defence Millennium 35 mm close-in weapon system, and a 12-cell vertical launch system that can deploy the MBDA VL-MICA surface-to-air missiles.

The weapon systems will be completed with a modified version of Thales' TACTICOS combat management system.

The platform is on track for delivery to the TNI-AL in January 2017, said PT PAL.

MINUSCA a ajouté 7 photos de juillet à l’album La MINUSCA honore la compagnie du génie indonesien — à Bangui.

Bangui, 19 juillet 2016 – Deux cents soldats indonésiens de la compagnie du génie de la Minusca ont été décorés mardi à Bangui par le Représentant spécial du Secrétaire général des Nations Unies en Centrafrique, Parfait Onanga-Anyanga. Ces Casques bleus ont reçu la médaille de la paix des Nations Unies, qui représente selon le chef de la mission, la preuve du travail ardu accompli par ces « génies » indonésiens.

Déployés en Centrafrique depuis le 15 août 2015 et basés à Bangui, ces hommes ont pour attributions principales, le rétablissement des axes routiers ainsi que la construction et la réfection des infrastructures de la Force de la Minusca. D’après le Lieutenant-Colonel Denden Sumarlin, Commandant du contingent indonésien, depuis la date de leur déploiement en Centrafrique, ses hommes ont réalisé plus de 120 ouvrages allant de la construction des infrastructures militaires, à la construction ou à la maintenance des routes en passant par l’aide aux personnes déplacés par le conflit. « Nous entretenons également une très bonne relation avec les autorités centrafricaines », a-t-il soutenu.

Pour sa part, le Représentant spécial a remercié les soldats « pour le dur travail accompli avec succès en Centrafrique ». Il a aussi adressé ses remerciements au peuple indonésien pour avoir accepté d’envoyer des soldats dans les opérations de maintien de la paix à travers le monde et particulièrement en Centrafrique.

Saab submits Gripen bid for Indonesian fighter requirement

Jon Grevatt, Bangkok - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
20 July 2016



Saab has submitted a proposal to Indonesian authorities to supply its JAS 39 Gripen multirole fighter aircraft to meet the air combat requirements of the Indonesian Air Force (TNI-AU), Peter Carlqvist, head of Saab Indonesia, has confirmed to IHS Jane's .

Carlqvist said that the proposal is flexible over the version of Gripen aircraft that can be supplied to the TNI-AU but that the company remains "100%" committed to meeting Indonesia's requirements for localised industrial participation. The proposal was submitted earlier this year, although Carlqvist said the company is still waiting for the formal bidding process to commence.

The TNI-AU requirement is long-standing and is centred on a programme to replace the service's Northrop F-5E Tiger II fighters, which entered service in 1980. The programme is expected to feature the initial acquisition of 16 aircraft for about USD1.5 billion, but could expand considerably in the future as the TNI-AU responds to growing territorial concerns within Southeast Asia.

Carlqvist said Saab has proposed the current Gripen C/D version but is also open to supplying the new Gripen E version, which was rolled out by the company in May at its Linköping production plant in Sweden. The Gripen E offers several enhancements over the C/D in terms of survivability, sensors, general systems, payload, communications, performance, range, and avionics.

"Saab has submitted a budgetary proposal for one squadron of the latest generation Gripen," said Carlqvist. "Since we know rapid delivery is important to the Indonesian Air Force, Gripen C/D is the proposed version, but if a longer delivery time is acceptable Gripen E can be offered."

Central to the proposal, he said, is Indonesia's Defence Industry Law 2012 (also known as Law Number 16) that requires foreign contractors to fully engage with local industry.

"Law 16 will be absolutely central to everything that we offer to Indonesia," he said.

Indonesian president pushes to remove procurement agents

Jon Grevatt, Bangkok - IHS Jane's Defence Industry
21 July 2016




Indonesian president Joko Widodo has called on his Ministry of Defence (MoD) to ensure that it procures military equipment through government-to-government arrangements to support efforts towards transparency and accountability.

Underscoring the problem that Indonesia still faces with procurement agents - despite years of trying to eradicate their influence - Widodo said that middlemen involved in the process of purchasing defence equipment direct from industry were pushing up the costs of military acquisitions.

"To strengthen national defence the weapons procurement process should be between governments directly," Widodo said in a Cabinet meeting on 20 July according to state-run news agency Antara.

Mistral Atlas missile system carries out successful trial in Indonesia
Jul 23, 2016





MBDA with Pt. Pindad successfully conducted a user trial of short range air defence weapon system Mistral Atlas in Indonesia . The missile was fired targeting a pilot-less target aircraft (PTA).

Mistral is an infrared homing surface-to-air missile manufactured by the European multinational company MBDA missile systems (formerly by Matra BAe Dynamics).

The missile was launched from the launching complex of the Integrated Test Range . The test was aimed at gauging the flight consistency and effectiveness of the missile besides ascertaining the serviceability of the system in various conditions.

The system is a twin launcher, which is vehicle mounted, but can be easily deployed on the ground or on top of a building for static missions. MISTRAL ATLAS is normally operated by a gunner and a crew commander. However, if the mission is carried out in a simple tactical environment, it can be operated by one single soldier.

It can be either operated autonomously, thanks to its latest generation thermal sight and its IFF or integrated to a fire control and co-ordination system such as the MCP (MISTRAL CO-ORDINATION POST) or I-MCP (Improved Missile Control Post).

Budget Cuts and the TNI’s Modernization Program
(Source: The Jakarta Post; published Sept 5, 2016)
By Imanuddin Razak
JAKARTA --- State budget revisions usually happen because of a number of reasons, most often revenue shortfalls. However, this year’s budget revisions, or cuts to be precise, are different as they have now been made twice. After revising the 2016 state budget in June in line with the slump in the global oil price, the government took further austerity measures late last month to cope with the higher-than-predicted revenue shortfall.

President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo issued Presidential Instruction (Inpres) No. 8/2016 on Aug. 26 setting out a second round of budget cuts amounting to Rp 137.6 trillion (about US$10.4 billion) following a projected Rp 219 trillion state revenue shortfall, particularly stemming from low tax revenues, this year. Around Rp 64.7 trillion will be slashed from ministries and state institutions.

The across-the-board budget cuts will have an impact on the Defense Ministry’s budget, which includes spending on the Indonesian Military (TNI). All in all, defense spending will be reduced by some Rp 2.8 trillion this year. The savings will result from efficiencies in operational expenditure worth Rp 1.1 trillion and the rest from efficiencies in other expenditures.

Cost structure-wise, 40 percent of the Defense Ministry/TNI budget is spent on routine spending, such as on salaries for ministry employees and TNI personnel, 20 percent on procurement of military equipment and weaponry and the remaining 40 percent on capital expenditure, including on personnel welfare and housing provision.

In view of the above cost structure, it is therefore next to impossible to cut the routine spending of the Defense Ministry/TNI, unless the country’s economy is really in a bad shape. The only possible way is to cut spending on either the procurement of military equipment and weaponry or capital expenditure, or both.

However, upon looking further into the current state of TNI equipment and weaponry, it is also nearly impossible to slash the budget for equipment and weapons procurement, at least until the country can meet its commitment to the Minimum Essential Force (MEF) 2024.

Initiated in 1999 in the reform era, the MEF 2024 serves as a basis of transition until Indonesia is able to initiate a military innovation program that will adopt the most advanced military technology to start a revolution in military affairs and which will hopefully transform the TNI into an agile 21st century force.

Apart from the MEF 2024, President Jokowi’s “global maritime fulcrum” campaign has also added to the complexity of the TNI’s modernization program. The campaign, aimed at strengthening Indonesia’s maritime infrastructure and security apparatus to better propel Indonesia’s economic and political rise, has also led to the commitment to prompt modernization of the military’s equipment and weaponry, particularly that of the Navy.

Also part of the consideration in not reducing the budget for military equipment and weapons procurement is the fact that payment for all these procurements has been made in installments, a commitment to timely payment of which is an essential part of the sustainability of the country’s military modernization program in the future. Otherwise, we may find it difficult to purchase modern military equipment and weapons from top foreign producers as a result of our failure to pay previous installments on time.

Upon observing the above conditions, the last possible resort of the military budget cuts is to slash capital expenditure.

Until now, the Defense Ministry/TNI has been correct in not aggressively pursuing its ambition of providing more housing for its personnel, but using existing housing complexes instead. There have been reports of the eviction of retired officers and their family members from their official residences.

However, this policy must be enforced, especially during an economic crisis like today. Moreover, those official residences have from the beginning been allocated for use by active officers only.

Apart from housing, other programs that have no direct correlation with defense or military affairs should also be cut or postponed. One program in point is the Bela Negara (state defense), which was launched in October last year. The program, which is designed for Indonesian citizens of all backgrounds and income levels, has been initiated and conducted by the Defense Ministry.

Defense Minister Ryamizard Ryacudu has insisted the program is aimed at building national character, instilling discipline and promoting solidarity that could eventually prepare citizens for dealing with threats and playing a role in the event of war. It is also aimed at instilling the country’s Pancasila ideology so that foreign ideas cannot easily corrupt the minds of citizens.

The program has so far used the Defense Ministry’s budget, with some Rp 45 billion having been earmarked for the first year. Sustainable organization of such a program will certainly need state money although the ministry has insisted that in the future local governments will be expected to foot the bill.

Such a program is indeed important for an archipelagic and pluralistic nation like Indonesia but its organization could be postponed to a later time when the country’s economy has improved, or the ministry could cooperate and share the burden with related ministries, such as the Education Ministry and Social Affairs Ministry, in administering the program.

Areas of the world riddled with natural disasters and cursed by the secondary effects of mother nature’s wrath demand a responsive force that thinks, trains and plans ahead.

An exercise bringing together those very forces from 18 nations’ military and government organizations kicked off Sept. 5, 2016 at 14th Military Circle, Chonburi Province, Thailand. ASEAN Exercise 16-3 commenced with a fitting demonstration of an earthquake-induced collapsed building Search and Rescue operation.

Helicopters from Japan, Russia, Singapore and Thailand roared toward the airfield, dispatching fast-rope rescue teams and airlifting casualties. Meanwhile, teams on the ground moved casualties from the “hot zone,” a simulated collapsing building, to the “warm zone,” the immediate safety of an open field, and triaged according to casualty condition.

Teams from the Indian Army, Japan Ground Self-Defense Force and Royal Thai Army moved casualties secured on backboards swiftly to the pickup zone or field hospital. It was a grand display of pre-planned, coordinated and rehearsed disaster response, reinforcing the pay-off of the very familiarity and training this exercise will focus on.

“This exercise is intended to foster cooperation and to share experience, information and skills among military medics of the ASEAN member states and plus countries, while fostering capabilities of military units in the region through joint humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations,” said General Prawit Wongsuwon, Kingdom of Thailand Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, during the opening ceremony.

AEx 16-3 is an opportunity for different nations to apply and hone common standard operating procedures and diversify each other’s capabilities for the inevitable calamities of the volatile Indo-Asia-Pacific.

A U.S. contingent of approximately 25 personnel from U.S. Pacific Command; U.S. Army Pacific; U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Pacific and Pacific Air Forces will work alongside the other nations in both the command post and field training exercises conducting medical planning, air medical evacuation, military medicine and chemical/ biological/ radiological/ nuclear defense.

Approximately 2,000 personnel are participating in the exercise from the 10 ASEAN member states Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam and “plus” countries Australia, China, India, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia.

“This is considered an important milestone of defense cooperation,” Wongsuwon lauded the ASEAN Defense Ministers Meeting Plus program, which, “which helps maintain peace, stability and security in the region.”

Humbling reminders of the significance of combined joint disaster response training come in the form of approximately 100 natural disasters on average each year in the Indo-Asia-Pacific. Sharing and honing real-world, on the ground, tactical and operational response capabilities facilitates effective, efficient response in a merciless environment.
