Securing Indonesia’s Maritime Sovereignty Through Asset Modernisation And Technological Innovations With around IDR 104.58tn allocated for defense spending in the 2017 draft national budget, Indonesia remains highly committed to modernising its armed forces and other military organisations as it seeks to protect its national sovereignty and monitor its vast maritime borders against both traditional and increasingly technologically-savvy non-traditional and transnational threats. Weapons replacement and assets modernization remain key focuses due to outdated armament and there are also plans to build military bases in the Riau Islands and Natuna Islands for the Navy, Air Force and Army. With more than 17,000 islands to patrol across an archipelago three times bigger than Texas, the Navy is also looking to procure several new types of assets including submarines, fast-missile boats and frigates to increase their coastal surveillance capabilities. This conference is geared towards addressing some of the most important issues regarding Indonesia’s maritime security and coastal surveillance capabilities, including operational, procurement and tactical strategies in place to protect freedom of navigation in Indonesia’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and regional waters with the ultimate aim of transforming Indonesia into a global maritime fulcrum with a “Green-water” Navy by 2024. Among the Indonesian maritime organisations represented at the conference are the Indonesian Navy, Indonesian Air Force, Bakamla, Indonesian Marine Police, Badan SAR Nasional and the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries.
