Remote Sensing Activity in LAPAN: From Research to Services

LAPAN is the Indonesian research institute for aeronautics and space, including remote sensing. Besides, LAPAN is also the only remote sensing data and information provider in Indonesia to ministries, agencies, and local government. Lapan operates ground stations in Parepare and Bogor for satellite data acquisition. We use low- to very-high-resolution optical satellite imageries and SAR data. LAPAN’s research area is developing methods in data processing, providing user-friendly services, and remote sensing applications. Remote sensing data are used in monitoring forest cover, plantation, environment condition, urban development, and natural resources. Disaster mitigation and post-disaster management also need remote sensing data. LAPAN also developing a microsatellite with a multispectral remote sensing camera
