Enhancing Indonesia’s Network Communication Capability

As the first step of an MoU signed between Saab and Unhan (Indonesian Defence University) in June, Roland Heickerö, Associate Professor at the Swedish National Defence University along with a team from Saab, led by Bo Granbom, recently conducted a two day seminar and workshop at the Indonesian Defence University, Unhan in Jakarta.

With over 80 participants from both Indonesia and Sweden it was a platform to exchange knowledge and experience on topics like tactical data links, network communications and information superiority.

Several specialists in the field as well as senior officers from Indonesia took part in the seminar. On the second day an exclusive workshop was conducted with senior officers from all branches of the Indonesian armed forces to find a common way forward for Indonesia’s Network Communication Capability.

The MoU between Saab and Unhan is intended to forge closer ties between Saab, Unhan and TNI to collaborate in various fields. The seminar and workshop will be followed by several other activities in the upcoming year, like guest lectures and faculty support to share knowledge of new defence technologies.
