South Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) has handed over the second of three Nagapasa (Type 209/1400)-class diesel-electric submarines (SSKs) ordered by the Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia-Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) in 2011.

The TNI-AL received the 61.2 m-long boat, which will be known as KRI Ardadedali (with pennant number 404) once commissioned later this year, in a ceremony held on 25 April at DSME’s Okpo shipyard on South Korea’s Geoje Island, according to a company statement.

The boat, which displaces about 1,400 tonnes when dived, was launched in October 2016. Powered by four MTU 12V493 diesel engines, the submarine has a top speed of 21.5 kt when dived and 11 kt when surfaced.

Ardadedali , which has a crew complement of 40, is part of a KRW1.3 trillion (USD12.1 billion) contract signed between DSME and the Indonesian government in December 2011 for three SSKs.

First-of-class KRI Nagapasa (with pennant number 403), which was also built by DSME, was commissioned in August 2017, while a third vessel, Alugoro , is currently under construction at the facilities of Indonesian shipbuilder PT PAL in Surabaya, with delivery expected by 2021.

As Jane’s reported, the Nagapasa class is equipped with the Wärtsilä ELAC KaleidoScope suite of sensors, which consists of a cylindrical array sonar (CAS), a flank array sonar (FAS), an acoustic intercept sonar (AIS), and a mine avoidance sonar (MAS).

Key Points

- The Indonesian Navy is establishing a new unmanned naval aviation squadron
- Formation will initially operate the ScanEagle system that is being provided under a US assistance package

The Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia – Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) is establishing a new squadron to oversee the service’s unmanned naval aviation requirements.

TNI-AL sources told Jane’s that the new squadron will be known as Skadron Udara 700 (Aviation Squadron 700) and it will be based in Juanda Surabaya. The first equipment to be operated by Skadron Udara 700 would include the Insitu ScanEagle surveillance unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

Indonesia is currently anticipating the delivery of four Insitu ScanEagle UAVs and associated equipment, from the US government. The UAVs are being provided under a grant by the US government under a capacity-building programme for Southeast Asian navies known as the Maritime Security Initiative (MSI).

The MSI programme was first revealed by then US secretary of defense Ashton Carter at the 2015 iteration of the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore. The initiative seeks to improve maritime surveillance capabilities of Washington’s partners in the region: Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. The Philippines took delivery of six ScanEagle UAVs, which have been delivered as part of the MSI programme, in March 2018.

The Indonesian MSI package seeks to specifically improve the country’s maritime patrol capabilities, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance integration, and equipment maintenance capacity. The aim is to ensure that Jakarta has the capacity to adequately safeguard its maritime territories and economic resources, and contribute to regional security and stability, according to a note on the MSI programme published on a US government website.

Indonesia equips second KCR-60M attack craft with Chinese-made naval weapon

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - Jane's Navy International

16 July 2018


Test-firings of the Type 630 CIWS were conducted on board in July 2018. Source: TNI-AL

Key Points

- Indonesia has removed missile launchers from its second KCR-60M fast attack craft, and replaced these with a Chinese-made naval gun
- The vessel has also been equipped with Chinese-made fire-control sensors and a combat management system

The Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia – Angkatan Laut, or TNI-AL) has equipped its second KCR-60M fast attack craft, KRI Tombak (629), with a Chinese-made Type 630 30 mm close-in weapon system (CIWS) turret.

Tombak is the second-known KCR-60M vessel that has been modified to carry the six-barrelled weapon system. First-of-class KRI Sampari (628) received the same CIWS type in late 2017.

Jane’s has been made to understand that both ships underwent the modifications at state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL’s facilities in Surabaya in a process supervised by engineers from China.

The Type 630 is essentially a Chinese version of the Russian-developed AK-630. It is being marketed by China Shipbuilding Trading Company (CSTC) as the “NG-18 30 mm six-barrelled naval gun”. It can engage low-flying aircraft at distances of up to 2,500 m, sea-skimming projectiles at up to 1,300 m, and can fire between 4,500 and 5,000 rds/min.

To accommodate the weapon system, missile launchers on both Tombak and Sampari have been removed, with the Type 630 turret installed on a pedestal at the stern position where a rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB) used to be positioned.

The RHIB has now been repositioned slightly forward to occupy the space that was previously installed with diagonally mounted missile launchers. These launchers were meant to have provided the vessel with anti-ship missile capabilities, and could deploy weapons such as the Chinese-made C-705.

In line with the installation of the Type 630, both Tombak and Sampari have also been equipped with Chinese-made fire-control sensors and combat management systems (CMS).

The Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) has restored the hull-mounted sonar system of its Diponegoro (Sigma)-class corvette that ran aground in January 2015.

The vessel, KRI Frans Kaisiepo (368), ran aground while navigating the Surabaya Western Shipping Route (Alur Pelayaran Barat Surabaya, or APBS).

Frans Kaisiepo was on its way to the Java Sea to relieve sister ship KRI Sultan Hasanuddin (366) in search operations for downed Air Asia airliner QZ8501, a TNI-AL source told Jane's at the time.

Besides sustaining damage to its hull, the corvette’s Thales Kingklip hull-mounted sonar system was adversely affected in the grounding.

Thales has since restored the sonar's functionalities, and updated the ship’s operator console and signal processing systems. The company worked with an Indonesian industrial partner, PT Dharma Satya Nusantara (DSN), during the repairs as part of a technology transfer programme.

STERNA Flies for Indonesian Navy - The First Magnetic Measurement Mission by UAV

(Source: ECA Group; issued Sept 25, 2018)

For the first time, a drone has been used to check the magnetic signature of a vessel in order to assess its vulnerability against underwater mines and other unfriendly detectors. STERNA is the first UAV based portable aerial magnetic range used by a navy in operational conditions. The UAV-based solution STERNA, has been deployed by the Indonesian Navy in July 2018.

STERNA is based on ECA Group’s airborne drone IT180, a compact, high-performance mini-UAV VTOL (complementary to the VTOL UAVs of the higher categories) embedding a magnetometer and its digitizer. This system is a part of set-up degaussing systems in compliance with NATO standards.

3 Years: From innovation to operational concept testing

Developed by ECA Group in 2016, STERNA is a portable aerial ranging solution able to measure the magnetic signature of vessels. This solution is an innovative patented system rewarded with the innovation award by the French Minister of Defence in 2016. The first contract for this innovative ship protection system was awarded in early 2017.

Today, ECA Group announces a first successful mission at sea for Indonesian Navy.

Pushing technical boundaries

To perform a magnetic measurement using a drone the key points are to:
-- Use the norm of the magnetic vector instead of the three axes relatives’ components
-- Know how to compensate the carrier (drone) own magnetism;
-- Know how to correct sensors’ errors

The last two points are ensured through a performing algorithm and a calibration figure which have proven their efficiency on real vessel’s measurements. Consistent magnetic signatures have been computed from these measurements applying sensor data optimisation and carrier effects compensation and by recalculating the components thanks to a multi-dipolar model (plane of dipoles at the sea surface). ECA Group’s solution was also able to measure coils effects of a degaussing system.

VIDEO: ECA Group - Magnetic Risk Management - Aerial Ranging: https://youtu.be/G_9mqCwp-WM

Thus, STERNA can be used for different type of magnetic measurements performing several runs along the longitudinal axis:

-- At least one run to measure submarine in MAD type measurement (Magnetic Anomaly Detection): height of flight chosen far enough to be in the simple dipolar area of the submarine but close enough to have signal, so Direct computation of MAD risk

-- At least three runs to check vessel’s magnetic signature (with or without degaussing system): height of flight chosen far enough to avoid vessel’s superstructure and local magnetic effects but close enough to have signal, so Evaluation of MAD risk, escape scenario and mine risk, checking of the magnetic signature and of the degaussing system efficiency on operation theatre

STERNA: Faster and more accurate results

The use of a moving disturbing carrier is made feasible thanks to an innovative system performing algorithm to compensate the carrier disturbances and model the vessel.

Using the IT180 UAV, the measurement of vessel’s magnetic signature was completed in less than one hour in operational conditions, while traditional methods require an immobilisation of the vessel during several days.

'Using the latest technology certainly has an impact on effectiveness and efficiency without reducing the purpose and the objective of the test, so using STERNA will be much faster than the old method and will provide us with more accurate results,' says Colonel Anis Kelaikan, MOD inspector for HAT and SAT.

Benefits from IT180 UAV’s outstanding performances for sea operations

The STERNA system benefits from a unique design and outstanding performances of IT180 UAV. This combat proven versatile mini-helicopter drone is already in mission within the French Armed Forces in Mali and integrated within several other world’s Armies. It is easy to use, even in harsh weather conditions or in hostile environments such as the desert, mountain or Polar Regions.

'Further developments have been done and will be continued in order to optimize its performances for operations at sea', says Guénaël Guillerme, CEO of ECA Group. 'The IT180 UAV mini-drone navalisation project is in ECA Group R&D roadmap for Naval Forces. It should bring a new carrier called IT200N by 2020'.

With an autonomy of up to four hours giving it a range of 40 nautical miles, ECA Group’s IT200N aerial drone will:
-- Carry payloads up to 9kg (EO/IR, LIDAR…)
-- Detect floating drifting mines in front of an expeditionary naval force in transit,
-- Relay data as trans-horizon radio relay with the other aerial drones and the naval surface drones (USV) implemented by the same ship.

Indonesian Navy to send aviators for anti-submarine warfare training in India

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - Jane's Navy International

07 October 2018

Key Points

- Indonesia will dispatch an initial cohort of three naval aviators for anti-submarine warfare training in India
- The training is being conducted as part of efforts to bolster the country's embarked rotary-wing anti-submarine capabilities

The Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut, or TNI-AL) is preparing to send an initial batch of three naval aviators to Kochi, India where they will undergo training at the Indian Navy's Anti-Submarine Warfare School.

The training is part of the TNI-AL's effort to re-establish an anti-submarine warfare (ASW)-specific rotary-wing formation known as the Skadron Udara 100, a TNI-AL official confirmed with Jane's on 5 October. It will take place over a period of three months.

"We usually send surface-ship naval personnel for such courses. But this is the first time we're sending naval aviators, as we are trying to develop skill sets in this domain urgently", said the official.

"Besides receiving instruction in ASW theories and operations, the aviators have also been tasked to develop a curriculum that will be taught at the Juanda naval aviation base [near Surabaya]", he added.

Upon returning to Indonesia at the end of the three-month programme, the aviators will assume duties alongside the TNI-AL's newly acquired AS565 MBe Panther helicopters.

Indonesia has ordered 11 new Panther helicopters to bolster the TNI-AL's embarked aviation and ASW capabilities. Two of these have been commissioned. The rest of the airframes are in various stages of completion, some of which are fitting out at the Bandung factory of Indonesia's state-owned aircraft manufacturer, PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI).

The helicopters' suite of ASW sensors include the L3 Ocean Systems DS-100 HELRAS dipping sonar, a lightweight torpedo launching system, and a lightweight operator console.

I find this choice a little weird?

The Indians have known serious problems with their ASW fleet, to whit, they really only have a partial fleet that s active and not archaic, and that's Russian-sourced, and of dubious relevance to a Wester-equipped ASW fleet the Indonesians will soon have............

The Indians also don't use Panthers as an ASW asset, nor most, if not all of the gear they are equipped with.

The Indian fleet is mostly Russian designed if not built. The Indonesians, primarily Western (they have a bunch of Ex East German/DDR "relics" of dubious worth and capability).

If the Indon's were serious about this, they need to go to the Europeans, either France, who also use Panther, or the UK, as they at least understand, and have active, an ASW fleet.

IMHO of course............

Indo Defence 2018: France eyes Indonesian submarine expansion

1st November 2018 - 16:46 GMT | by Beth Maundrill in London



Indonesia has its sights set on the acquisition of additional attack submarines beyond the three Nagapasa-class boats that are currently being delivered.

One company that is looking to fulfil this requirement is France's Naval Group which will be present at Indo Defence 2018 to promote its Scorpene submarine.

In 2011 the Indonesian Navy selected the three Chang Bogo class, known as the Nagapasa-class in Indonesia, which is based on the German Type 209 hull design and built under license in the Republic of Korea by DSME.

While no formal decision has been made it is understood that a targeted fleet of ten to 12 submarines is desired by the Indonesian Navy. Currently, it has four submarines in its fleet and one Nagapasa-class still to be delivered.

‘Naval Group, as a recognised naval platform designer and manufacturer together with its unique experience of Transfer of Technology in export programme, is ready to offer the Scorpene class submarine together with adapted Transfer of Technology in accordance with the New Defence Bill issued by the Indonesian government,’ said a Naval Group spokesperson.

The company is also looking at the potential of building in-country and said that its main industrial partner will be the state-owned shipyard PT PAL.

Members of the PINHANTANAS (Private Defence Industry Association) could be suitable industrial partner the spokesperson said.

‘The operational requirements of the Indonesian Navy tend to be oceanic with shallow waters capabilities. Our Scorpene-class submarine offers unmatched capabilities in both oceanic and shallow water,’ he added.

While the company has not built the latest batch of submarines for the South East Asian nation the company is well implemented in the region with the active P-75 programme in India. This will provided six Scorpene diesel-electric submarines to the Indian Navy.

Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems TKMS, the design owner of the Type 209 which it acquired after the merger of TKMS and Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft, is also set to be at Indo Defence and will likely be vying for the same opportunities as Naval Group.

Sea Ceptor aims for corvette retrofit [ID18D2]

07 November 2018



European guided weapons house MBDA (Hall D, Stand D210) is pushing its new Sea Ceptor local area anti-air missile system as a potential retrofit for the Indonesian Navy’s three Bung Tomo-class corvettes, writes Richard Scott.

Based on the new Common Anti-air Modular Missile (CAMM) effector, Sea Ceptor has been ordered by the UK Ministry of Defence to replace VL Seawolf on the Royal Navy’s Type 23 frigates, and to equip new Type 26 frigates from build. The system has also secured export orders from New Zealand and Chile for frigate upgrade programmes.

The 95m Bung Tomo-class ships were originally designed to receive the VL Seawolf point defence missile system (with space for a 16-cell silo forward of the bridge). However the Seawolf system was not installed prior to Indonesia’s 2013 agreement to acquire the ships.

With VL Seawolf no longer in production, MBDA is now proposing to equip the three vessels with the next-generation Sea Ceptor system. “As demonstrated by the highly successful Type 23 upgrade programme for the Royal Navy, Sea Ceptor is a proven and low-risk upgrade option for vessels configured for the previous Seawolf system such as the Bung Tomo corvettes,” an MBDA spokesperson said. “Also, the system’s design, including its active radar seeker and a two-way datalink, makes it virtually radar- and combat management system-agnostic.”

Capable of ranges of more than 25km, CAMM uses an active radar seeker (supported by mid-course guidance updates) to deliver an allweather engagement capability against multiple targets simultaneously. It also features novel ‘soft launch’ technology, where a gas-powered piston propels the missile away from the ship before thrusters orientate it in the required direction of flight. Once the low-speed/low-energy turnover is complete, the missile fires its main rocket motor.

“At only 100kg per missile and utilising cold vertical launch, Sea Ceptor offers substantial weight and volume savings over alternate systems,” MBDA told the Show Daily, “while providing shorter interception times and substantially increased maximum range.”

Key Points

- Indonesia's Martadinata-class frigates will receive launchers for the VL MICA missile in 2019
- Delivery paves the way for an eventual procurement of effectors for the air defence system

The Indonesian Navy's (Tentara Nasional Indonesia-Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) pair of Martadinata (SIGMA 10514)-class guided-missile frigates will each receive a set of 12-cell launchers for the VL MICA air defence system in 2019, an industry source has confirmed with Jane's at the Indo Defence 2018 exhibition in Jakarta.

A contract to deliver the launchers has been concluded, and installation of the weapon systems will be undertaken at state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL's premises in Surabaya, in collaboration with Damen and MBDA, the source added.

The SIGMA 10514 frigates, KRI Raden Eddy Martadinata (331), and KRI I Gusti Ngurah Rai (332), were commissioned in April 2017 and January 2018 respectively. Both ships were delivered to the TNI-AL in the 'fitted for but not with' (FFBNW) configuration for its major weapon systems including point-defence missiles, surface-to-surface missiles, and a close-in weapon system (CIWS).

However, both frigates have each been armed with one Leonardo (Oto Melara) 76/62 Super Rapid gun in the primary position.

The VL MICA is a vertically launched point, and close area air-defence system that provides protection against a wide range of airborne threats including hostile aircraft, and precision-guided munitions. The system does not require dedicated sensors nor consoles, and can be fully integrated into the SIGMA 10514's existing combat infrastructure.

While a contract for the launchers has been concluded, Indonesia has yet to confirm acquisitions of the missiles, although the industry source Jane's spoke to at Indo Defence 2018 posits that a deal for the missiles will follow through eventually. "A contract for the missiles will follow logically, and we hope it will happen soon," he added.

Indonesia signs for four additional KCR-60M fast attack craft

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - Jane's Navy International

03 January 2019

Key Points

- Indonesia has acquired four more KCR-60M vessels, the first of which will be delivered in 2021
- Additional boats will be part of an overall effort to reconstitute the class for lower-tempo operations

The Indonesian Ministry of Defence (MoD) has placed an order for four more KCR-60M-class fast attack craft with state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL.

A contract for the vessels, worth IDR2,800 trillion (USD195 million), was signed on 28 December at the MoD's office in Jakarta, a senior official from PT PAL has confirmed with Jane's . All vessels will be constructed by PT PAL at its facilities in Surabaya.

However, unlike contracts for four earlier vessels in the KCR-60M class, the latest order calls for construction work in the 'fitted-for-but-not-with' (FFBNW) configuration for all the vessels' combat effectors including weapons, sensors, and countermeasures systems.

Jane's understands that the Indonesian MoD will issue separate contracts for the vessels' weapons and sensors, although it is unclear when these are expected to materialise.

The Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut, or TNI-AL) currently operates a fleet of three KCR-60M vessels, which were commissioned between May and September 2014, and is currently anticipating delivery of a fourth boat that was launched in February 2018.

The class has an overall length of 59.8 m, an overall beam of 8.1 m, and a hull draught of 2.6 m. Powered by two MTU 20V 4000 M73L diesel engines, the vessel can attain a maximum speed of 28 kt and a maximum range of 2,400 n miles at 20 kt. With its full crew complement of 43, the vessel has an endurance of nine days.

The KCR-60M was originally conceived by Indonesian defence planners as a 'hit-and-run' platform that could swiftly deploy guided anti-ship missiles against larger surface combatants, before quickly receding into the archipelagic background.
