Indonesia to set up satellite-based oceanography centre

Indonesia: The government has chosen CLS, a subsidiary of CNES, to create a major national centre to forecast changes to marine resources, protect them (especially against illegal fishing) and develop them.

The Indonesian government has chosen CLS and entrusted it with the creation of its national centre for monitoring and sustainable management of marine resources. This national centre, commissioned at a cost of almost $30M, will include a research and surveillance centre, a receiving station for the acquisition of high-resolution radar satellite imagery, models for forecasting the evolution of tuna populations and a training programme for scientists.
