Indonesia approves defence ministry plans to acquire military communications satellite

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
28 June 2016

Key Points

• Indonesia has approved plans by the military to acquire a communications satellite that will be launched in 2019
• Acquisition is expected to spur the usage of satellite-based communication systems across the Indonesian Armed Forces

The Indonesian House of Representatives commission on defence, intelligence, and foreign affairs (Komisi I) has approved a request for funding from the country's defence ministry and the Indonesian Armed Forces (Tentara Nasional Indonesia, or TNI) to acquire a satellite from Airbus Defence and Space for USD849.3 million.

Plans to acquire the satellite were approved on 27 June, according to a transcript of proceedings between Komisi I and the Indonesian Ministry of Defence and TNI, provided to IHS Jane's on the day after.

The satellite will be used for military satellite communications on the L-Band frequency and is targeted for launch in 2019. The satellite is expected to be developed with input from the military and various Indonesian institutions, but Airbus Defence and Space will be fully responsible for its launch.

Upon launch, the satellite is expected to occupy the orbital slot of 123 degrees east longitude. The orbital slot, which has been allocated to Indonesia by the International Telecommunications Union, was previously occupied by the Garuda-1 satellite belonging to Asia Cellular Satellite. However, it has since been taken out of orbit due to various malfunctions.

The satellite's acquisition costs are expected to be disbursed by the Indonesian government over a five-year period leading up to 2019.

under international aviation conventions, to be frank, it was intercepted ie an electronic and visual detection was made by the Indons. he just dowan to make a big noise or even explain what happened. so he invented the story that intercepted = forced down doh.gif to save face.

can read a brief overview here. the flightgear article mentioned inside is also informative.

its a small thing because after all no one got hurt and no ones rights were trespassed, but its the kind of casual lying that has become the norm in Msia to feed the public, thats why I rage vmad.gif same fucking attitude during MH370, keluarkan bohong dulu thats why we were shamed on international news and China fuck us so hard. never fuckin learn bangwall.gif vmad.gif

Based on what I read from the link you gave, I don't consider it as interception for this case as indons f16 didnt even do anything other than observing from far not even trying to communicate with the rmaf pilot. Rmaf pilot even try to contact them but without reapond. In other words, there is no indication that the indon air force attempting to chase away rmaf's c130. Also, I think u r a bit too emotional in this matter accusing hishamuddin as lying or trying to twist facts. I know maybe u dont support bn/umno but we should not let it hinder us from thinking rationally. Why would the indon chase away rmaf c130 when it doesn't violating anything? No one knows whats the indon intention here but for all we know rmaf c130 doesn't violate anyone's airspace. Maybe indon just trying to show their power and Malaysian govt couldn't be bothered to entertain? I don't know.

Edit: Maybe it can be considered visual interception but I think hisham trying to tell the public that c130 route wasn't "blocked" nor they receive instruction from indon to change route or exit their airspace. I think that is what hisham means as he know normal public wont know such term as "visual interception". Why would hisham lie anyway? To save face? From indon? I think they really dgaf. What embarrassment u will get getting ur plane being visually intercepted especially by indon?

interception don't have to mean communication. if you read the article (s) the definition is simply, making an electronic and/or visual check of an aircraft. which DID happen. Such as this: no communication, no forcedown, considered an intercept.

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/raf-t...russian-7992033

I actually agree with you and Hisham that its a very minor thing not worth making a fuss of. But the converse question is: kalau dia memang hal remeh-temeh, then apasal Hisham kena bohong? come up with some cock definition of "intercepted = forcedown" bangwall.gif simply to... I dunno.

My politics got nothing to do with it bro. But for gods sake, don't make it so easy for people (including other countries) to shoot, especially over small issue. You all feel its ok to be lied to casually huh?

Turkey 'sorry for downing Russian jet'

QUOTE
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has apologised for the downing of a Russian military jet on the Turkey-Syria border, the Kremlin has said.

Mr Erdogan sent a message to President Vladimir Putin expressing "sympathy and deep condolences" to the family of the killed pilot, a spokesman said.

Turkey had angered Moscow by failing to apologise for the incident in November.

Russia responded by imposing trade sanctions and suspending Russian package tours to Turkey.

Mr Putin said at the time the restrictions would not be lifted until Russia received an apology.

Mr Erdogan spoke of his deep regret for what happened and said he wanted to restore relations, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

"The letter states, in particular, that Russia is a friend to Turkey and a strategic partner, with which the Turkish authorities would not wish to spoil relations," Mr Peskov said.

Turkey has not yet commented on the Kremlin statement.

Eight injured in blast at nightspot in Puchong, Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR: A blast at a nightspot in Puchong in the early hours of Tuesday (Jun 28) morning left eight people injured.

The Special Branch Counter-Terrorism Division told Channel NewsAsia that investigations are ongoing and that it would look into all possibilities, whether gang-related, business rivalry or terrorism.

SUSPICIOUS FACEBOOK POST

Malaysia's Inspector General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar later said authorities are investigating a Facebook post claiming the blast was the "first blessed attack" in Kuala Lumpur by a terror cell.

"We are still investigating," Mr Khalid told Channel NewsAsia when asked about the posting.

Early reports from local media has said that police had ruled out terrorism but were investigating the case as "attempted murder", suspecting it to be an attack linked to business rivalry.

However, on Tuesday afternoon, local Mandarin news outlet Sinchew posted a screenshot of a Facebook post under the account "Abu Hamzah Al-Fateh". The account is known to be associated with a Malaysian fighting with Islamic State in Syria, but the post is not publicly visible.

Abu Hamzah reportedly wrote that two members of "junud khilafah wilayah milazia" (sic) had targeted a nightclub full of "heathens" who had not respected the Muslim holy month of Ramadan with "immoral acts". He also urged Muslims to stay away from places like this to avoid becoming targets.

The incident occurred at Movida nightclub at around 2.30am when some 20 patrons in the restaurant were watching Italy play Spain in the Euro 2016. Bernama also quoted DPC Rahim as saying that a car located about 30 metres from the nightspot was damaged.

"ISOLATED INCIDENT": MOVIDA


user posted image

In a Facebook post on Tuesday afternoon, the director of the bar Roger Hew said preliminary investigations revealed that the incident involved "an Indian couple" targeted due to personal matters.

"An eyewitness saw two Indian men (throw) an explosive at the said couple," he wrote. "This is an isolated case and (does) not in any way indicate an attack (based on) any religion, belief or race."

He added that the couple in question suffered minor injuries are and in a stable condition.

In a statement released by Movida later that night, the club's management said they are in close contact with authorities and are monitoring the status of the injured customers.

"We believe that the explosive item shattered the glass panels at the alfresco and injured the customers sitting at the outdoor dining area," the statement said, echoing the director in calling it an "isolated incident". "We do not speculate and shall leave the investigation to the authorities."

Istanbul Ataturk airport attack: 41 dead and more than 230 hurt

A gun and bomb attack on Istanbul's Ataturk airport has killed 41 people, at least 13 of them foreigners, and injured more than 230, officials say.
Three attackers arrived in a taxi and began firing at the terminal entrance late on Tuesday. They blew themselves up after police fired back.
PM Binali Yildirim said early signs pointed to so-called Islamic State but no-one has so far admitted the attack.
Recent bombings have been linked to either IS or Kurdish separatists.

Tuesday's attack looked like a major co-ordinated assault, says the BBC's Mark Lowen.
Ataturk airport has long been seen as a vulnerable target, our Turkey correspondent adds, reporting from a plane stuck on the tarmac in Istanbul.
There are X-ray scanners at the entrance to the terminal but security checks for cars are limited.

Pictures from the airport terminal showed bodies covered in sheets, with glass and abandoned luggage littering the building.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the attack should serve as a turning point in the global fight against militant groups.
"The bombs that exploded in Istanbul today could have gone off at any airport in any city around the world," he said.'

The US called the attack "heinous", saying America remained "steadfast in our support for Turkey".
German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere called the attacks "cowardly and brutal".
'Dressed in black'

Istanbul's governor confirmed 41 people had died and 239 were injured in the attack. At least 13 of those killed were of foreign or dual nationality. Some 109 of those hurt have now been discharged from hospital.
One Iranian and one Ukrainian were confirmed dead.Reports of the attack vary but it appears the attackers opened fire at the entrance where the X-ray machines are positioned, sparking an exchange with police. At least two ran into the building.

Footage on social media shows one moving through the building as people around him flee. He is shot by police and remains on the ground for about 20 seconds before blowing himself up. All three attackers were killed.
Analysis: BBC security correspondent, Frank Gardner
The lack of any immediate claim for this attack by so-called Islamic State is not surprising. IS rarely, if ever, claims responsibility for attacks against the Turkish state yet it is quick to advertise its assassinations of Syrian activists inside Turkey.

user posted image

All the signs point towards IS being the culprits. This is what British counter-terrorism officials term "a marauding terrorist firearms attack", following a pattern first seen in the Mumbai attacks of 2008.
The Istanbul targets were international air travellers and ground staff at an iconic location, the third busiest airport in Europe.
IS is targeting Turkey because it sees its government as being un-Islamic and too close to its Western allies in Nato. IS is also feeling the pressure as the Turkish authorities move to close down its networks inside Turkey.
Turkey's other main foe, Kurdish separatists, have carried out many attacks over the years but their primary targets have tended to be Turkish policemen and soldiers.
Paul Roos, who was due to fly home to South Africa, told Reuters he saw one of the attackers.

"He was wearing all black. His face was not masked. We ducked behind a counter but I stood up and watched him. Two explosions went off shortly after one another. By that time he had stopped shooting.
"He turned around and started coming towards us. He was holding his gun inside his jacket. He looked around anxiously to see if anyone was going to stop him and then went down the escalator. We heard some more gunfire and then another explosion, and then it was over."

Taxis were used to rush casualties to hospital after the attack. Desperate relatives of those missing later gathered outside a local hospital where many victims were taken.

Flights in and out of the airport were suspended after the attack. They have now resumed, but information boards showed about one-third had been cancelled, with many delays.
Charles Michel, the prime minister of Belgium whose capital city was targeted by bombers in March, tweeted from the EU summit in Brussels: "Our thoughts are with the victims of the attacks at Istanbul's airport. We condemn these atrocious acts of violence."
#PrayforTurkey began trending on Twitter after the attack.

QUOTE
Varunastra” was developed by the Naval Science and Technology Laboratory, a unit of DRDO. The torpedo is an indigenous state of the art heavyweight ship-launched anti-submarine electric torpedo. Its weight is around 1.25 tonnes, carries 250 kg of explosives and has a speed of around 40 nautical miles per hour.
The Indian navy has ordered 73 such torpedoes.

Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar said that it will not only be a boost to country’s indigenous capabilities but also an opportunity to export to other countries.

A Malaysian Playboy Corrupted the U.S. Navy

QUOTE
Investigators found that a Malaysian ship-support contractor distributed lavish gifts, paid travel expenses and provided prostitutes to Navy personnel in the U.S. 7th Fleet so they would steer business to his company
QUOTE
The man at the center of the case is Leonard Glenn Francis, a Malaysian national and the CEO of Glenn Defense Marine Asia. Popularly known as “Fat Leonard” due to his physical stature, his company provided port services, also called husbanding, to the 7th Fleet while it operated in the Pacific
QUOTE
This is a lucrative business. The 7th Fleet consists of more than 60 ships operating continuously in that part of the world. Each time one of these ships comes into port, the Navy pays a contractor for all of these services
QUOTE
Just one such port call by an aircraft carrier to Port Klang, Malaysia, handled by Glenn Defense Marine Asia in 2006, cost the American people more than $1.2 million
QUOTE
But the investigation is far from over. So far, 14 people have been charged and approximately 200 remain under investigation
QUOTE
This number includes 30 admirals

Istanbul Ataturk Airport Terrorists Behaved Like a Special Forces Unit

user posted image

QUOTE
It was carried out in a way that suggests the kind of advance intelligence, careful study of a target, and cool execution that would normally be practised by Western special forces
QUOTE
There were three phases. It began with an attack in a car park adjacent to the international arrivals terminal. The purpose was to draw security staff away from the terminal
QUOTE
as in many airports, there was no security threshold before the check-in desks
QUOTE
The car park diversion achieved its aim of drawing police and security staff from the building’s first line of defense—and left vulnerable scores of people at the taxi and drop-off area waiting to go through security
QUOTE
This was where the second attack was carried out, causing most of the casualties: 41 dead, more than 200 injured. The blast effect of this attack breached the doors and security cordon, allowing a third attacker to get inside the building
QUOTE
From the video it seems that the guard died while trying to prevent the attacker from detonating the suicide belt—an act of supreme bravery
QUOTE
In Europe (excepting Germany) the airport authorities have to fund their own security. In the U.S., of course, the Transport Security Administration (TSA) is responsible for all airport security as part of Homeland Security
QUOTE
It may always be true that once terrorists get to an airport it is already too late to stop an attack, even if it can be disrupted. The most effective last line of defense is intelligence that identifies and thwarts an attack before it can be executed
