Thales Alenia Space, the joint venture between Thales (67%) and Leonardo
(33%), has signed a multi-mission contract with PT Len Industri to provide a state-of-the-art Earth observation
constellation combining both radar and optical sensors and dedicated to the Indonesian Ministry of Defence
(MoD).
Both companies will join forces to deploy an end-to-end system including space and ground segment in
Indonesia. This Earth Observation constellation includes optical and radar satellites seamlessly integrated
and operated through a multi-mission ground segment in which Telespazio (Leonardo 67%, Thales 33 %) is
contributing. Thales Alenia Space operationally proven solutions are powered by Artificial Intelligence to
guarantee fast system responsiveness and enhanced Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance
capability. The constellation will be operated by PT Len to satisfy the MoD’s requirements regarding
Indonesia’s safety and sovereignty.
In conjunction with Thales Alenia Space, PT Len will develop a multimission ground segment system to
provide control, maintenance, data processing, and analytic functions for the Defense Satellite System.
Additionally, PT Len will grant the MoD access to the existing high revisit Earth observation satellite
constellation through a partnership with BlackSky. This service will provide early ISR satellite capability for
the MoD and Indonesian National Armed Forces prior to the Defense Satellite System operation.
The Indonesian Earth Observation constellation will be built on Thales Alenia Space’s all-in-one radar and
optical offer leveraging its strong expertise in delivering complex end-to-end systems that also embrace
Telespazio key building blocks for ground segment. The Indonesian Earth Observation constellation builds
on the long standing optical sensors capabilities of Thales Alenia Space in France and on the SAR satellites
expertise of Thales Alenia Space in Italy.
“Thales Alenia Space, which has a long history of working with Indonesian satellite operators, is honored to
be given the opportunity to work on a crucial program for the Indonesian Defense Ministry for the first time”
said Hervé Derrey, CEO of Thales Alenia Space. “I would like to thank PT Len Industri for putting its trust in
our company. Leveraging our long-standing expertise in Earth observation, we are proud to celebrate a new
milestone towards Indonesia’s sovereignty and safety needs, providing a one-of-a-kind integrated optical and
radar system”.
“I am extremely glad that we will contribute to meet the needs of the Indonesian Defense Ministry with our
state-of-the-art labelled all-in-one radar and optical system solutions. It is the perfect combination of our longstanding expertise and industrial capabilities in optical and radar sensors as well as in smaller platforms
aimed at high revisit observation systems. Once again we are pushing the limits of system capabilities with
emerging space technologies” said Massimo Claudio Comparini, Deputy CEO and SEVP Observation,
Exploration and Navigation.
Bobby Rasyidin, President-Director of PT Len Industri (Persero) expressed his optimism about the
collaboration between Len and Thales Alenia Space, asserting “Cooperation between Len and Thales Alenia
Space is a positive way to increase our independence in the defense industry”.
Through this partnership, PT Len is expected to strengthen its capabilities for managing and operating
satellite systems and projects. Furthermore, by handling the satellite imagery processing and analysis for this
project, PT Len will strengthen its position as critical defense system provider in Indonesia.
