Thursday (12/4), LAPAN held Focus Group Discussion (FGD theme “Management of Technical Committee of Indonesian National Standard for Aeronautics and Space. The event was held on 12-13 April 2018 in Tangerang, Banten.
In his speech, Deputy Chairman for Aeronautics and Space Technology, Dr. Rika Andiarti stated, with the passage of Act No. 21 of 2013 on Space Conduct, Indonesia has a fixed and strong legal basis to run its space conduct activities. "All space activities such as the development of aeronautics and space technology, remote sensing, space and atmospheric science, space launch, and commercialization are regulated in Act No. 21 of 2013", said Rika.
"One of the important points in Act No. 21 of 2013 is about the demand to establish the norms, standards, guidelines, and criteria regarding the space conduct," said Rika. The urgency to establish such things is not only to regulate and control, but also to ensure the safety and security of the space conduct.
Rika continued, in Article No. 39 Paragraph 1 of Act 21 of 2013 it is stated that the Space Activities may be carried out by other Government Institution, Local Government, legal entity, and/or the community in accordance with the prevailing laws and regulations. Article 39 Paragraph 2 of such Act stipulates that the implementation of the space as meant in paragraph 1 shall be coordinated by the institution, in this case, LAPAN. For this reason, LAPAN makes the application of aeronautics and space standards as a matter of urgency considering the two verses in the article makes LAPAN as the coordinating institution of the standard of space. It is expected that with the introduction of national standards on space, it can be the legal basis can be carried out either by LAPAN or by other agencies in Indonesia.
Rika provides an example of the application of the standards as the tool that regulates, controls, and oversees the space conduct. In aeronautical technology, the development trend of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), the issue of UAV regulation is widely discussed both at the national and international levels. Europe, in the near future, will issue standards related to UAV, both regarding the technology and regulation. In Indonesia, for example, in the FGD held, the separation between the use of transportation and aeronautics and space technology will be discussed with the Ministry of Transportation.
Furthermore, the Deputy Chairman for Aeronautics and Space Technology LAPAN conveyed that there are three technical committees discussed in the FGD. Two technical committees proposed by LAPAN are the technical committee of aeronautics and space technology and the technical committee of information systems and data acquisition system and run this year. While the technical committee on geographic and geomatics is one existing technical committee.
Rika hopes that this FGD will support the task of technical committees in producing a comprehensive draft of aeronautics and space standards and able to be the reference for every implementation of the space as per Act 21 of 2013.
The FGD was attended by Deputy Chairman for Remote Sensing LAPAN, technical committee members from representatives of LAPAN, National Standardization Institution (BSN), Geospatial Information Agency (BIG), Ministry of Transportation, Ministry of Communication and Information, UI, ITB, Undip, UGM, IPB, and representatives from industries such as PT Telkom Indonesia, PT Dahana and PT DI.
