December 7, 2023 – Thales Alenia Space 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 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 security 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.
