Bandung (15/9/2020) Center for Atmospheric Science and Technology (PSTA) -LAPAN held a Focus Group Discussion on Atmospheric Science about Technology, Environment and Latest Climate Series 2 (SATELIT # 2) with the theme Development of Satellite Sensors for Atmospheric Observation.

SATELLITE FGD # 2 was held through a virtual media zoom meeting. Deputy for Space and Atmospheric Sciences, Ir. Halimurrahman, MT. attended to open the SATELIT FGD # 2. In his speech, he said that the development of satellite sensors for atmospheric observation at LAPAN must be implemented immediately considering the need to monitor urgent atmospheric parameters as well as the national independence of space technology.

"There is urgency to start developing satellite sensors to monitor atmospheric parameters." The territory of Indonesia is large, and it is prone to increasing disasters. For example, extreme rain, tornadoes, land / peat fires and volcanoes erupt more frequently. The potential for environmental monitoring with space technology is enormous. Another urgency is that the national independence of space technology must be started to show that Indonesia is an independent and advanced country and is ready to compete globally ”. Halimurrahman emphasized.

Head of PSTA-LAPAN, Dr. Didi Satiadi, M.Sc. delivered a presentation on Atmospheric Observation Technology Research and Development.

In his presentation, the Head of PSTA-LAPAN explained the importance of developing satellite sensors for atmospheric observation at PSTA-LAPAN as mandated in the Space Master Plan.

"As part of the space agency, the development of satellite sensors for atmospheric observations is very important at PSTA-LAPAN. Satellite observation has several advantages, including broad synoptic observations (including areas that are usually difficult to access), uniform (with a single sensor for all regions. ), fast and concurrently, and continuously, which is very much needed for atmospheric science

research and its application to various development sectors. Currently, satellite sensor development activities are starting to be carried out in 2020 by utilizing the onboard IR thermal imager sensor of the LAPAN-A4 Satellite. launched soon (Center for Satellite Technology-LAPAN), to achieve the target of developing an Equatorial Atmospheric Dynamics Decision Support System (DSS) integrated with national remote sensing satellites by 2024 as mandated in the Space Master Plan". explained Didi Satiadi.

Director of Space Mission Center (SMC), Prof. Yukihiro Takahashi from the Department of Cosmosciences, Graduate School of Science Hokkaido University, Japan delivered a presentation on On-Demand Coordinated Observation for Extreme Weather and Flood Using Micro-Satellite and Ground Networks.

Exposure on LAPAN-A4 Satellite, Optical Payload of LAPAN-A4 Satellite and Spectrum Filter and A4 Camera Test Results was delivered by the Engineers of the Satellite Technology Center - LAPAN, M. Arif Saifudin, ST., M.Kom., A. Hadi Safrudin, ST ., M.Sc. and Rommy Hartono, ST.
