Indonesia Chooses CLS to set up its Satellite-based Oceanography Centre

The region’s natural resources are also threatened by global warming, pollution and coastal deforestation. To combat these risks and support the country’s Blue Revolution, which aims to make Indonesia the world’s leading producer of seafood, the government has chosen CLS, a subsidiary of CNES, to create a major national centre to forecast changes to marine resources, protect them (especially against illegal fishing) and develop them.

 

But how to monitor a maritime region the size of Europe? One solution is by satellite, backed up by CLS expertise in acquiring, processing, analysing and interpreting of satellite data, combined with 20 years’ experience and expertise in space-based oceanography and the modelling of marine ecosystems.

 

The Indonesian government has chosen CLS and entrusted it with the creation of its national centre for the monitoring and sustainable management of marine resources. This national centre, commissioned at a cost of almost $30M, will include a research and surveillance centre, a receiving station for the acquisition of high-resolution radar satellite imagery, models for forecasting the evolution of tuna populations and a training programme for scientists.

 

The data processed and stored will be acquired from observation and surveillance satellites covering the entire maritime region around Indonesia.
