Approved for public release, distribution unlimited; This thesis is part of a software project to develop a diagnostic expert system for the MK 92 Mod 2 fire control system (FCS) daily system operability test (DSOT). The focus of this work examines the feasibility of applying multimedia, in the form of graphics, digital video, sound and CD-ROM technology, to the MK 92 Mod 2 Maintenance Advisor Expert System (MAES). The MAES application is intended for distribution to fleet sailors in order to increase readiness of the MK 92 Mod 2 FCS and decrease the need for outside technical assistance The MAES application is intended for distribution to the fleet on portable computers. In its current form, the MAES includes only text-based procedures and instructions to aid the user. This study examines whether it is technically feasible to employ high-resolution images, digital video, and sound to enhance the MAES and add impact to the current text outputs. Additionally, it explores the costs associated with each media. Given that the MAES will operate on a portable computer, the study also examines the limitations a portable environment places on multimedia technologies. Finally, this study recommends specific instances of incorporating multimedia in future implementations of the MAES.
Approved for public release, distribution unlimited; The Indonesian Navy presently relies on mainframe Univac 90-S to process data and support decision makers. The data are processed by batch processing. Presently, data communications use manual, indirect and direct data entry. Personnel within the organization do not understand and are not comfortable with the systems. This thesis suggests an information technology architecture for the Indonesian Navy and addresses the organizational and policy implications, including training issues, information center hardware, software, data communication capability, security, and estimation of cost. The purpose of this examination is to provide the Indonesian Navy with some input to the strategic plan.
Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; Armed forces all over the world need military equipment to support their security missions. Having a domestic defense industry is one approach that countries use to supply their armed forces’ requirements. The successful development of a domestic defense industry depends on many factors, but perhaps the most significant variable is the government. Because governments are both buyers and suppliers of national security, government policies are often designed by governments to defend and regulate domestic defense industries. This professional report explores the substance costs and benefits of various government policies to establish a sustainable defense industry. The report focuses on government policies in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, and South Korea, because defense industries in those countries have proven track records and tend to be profitable and sustainable.; ; Lieutenant Commander, Indonesian Navy; Lieutenant Commander, Indonesian Navy
Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; This thesis argues that Indonesia’s sensitivity about its sovereignty in the Malacca Straits and Indonesia’s preference toward regional security cooperation determines Indonesia’s policy in rejecting and accepting multilateral cooperation in the Straits. This thesis then analyzes the Regional Maritime Security Initiative (RMSI), MALSINDO, Eyes-in-the-Sky (EiS), and the Regional Cooperation Agreement on Combating Piracy and Armed Robbery against Ships (ReCAAP) initiatives, and examines how Indonesia responded to these initiatives. This thesis finds the following: First, regarding international effort to enhance the security cooperation in the Straits, Indonesia’s sensitivity and its wariness of internationalizing the Straits remains a big challenge for the extraregional states’ security initiatives in securing the Malacca Straits. Second, regarding the regional cooperation in the Straits, even though Indonesia prefers regional cooperation, it would still limit its cooperation when dealing with the sovereignty issue. Third, regarding the security cooperation with extraregional powers, Indonesia prefers a bilateral security cooperation framework in securing the Straits.; ; Commander...
Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; This thesis discusses the basic flight training in the Indonesian Air Force Undergraduate Pilot Training (IAF-UPT) and the primary training in the United States Navy Undergraduate Pilot Training (USN-UPT) which uses the same type of aircraft, the T-34C 'Turbo Mentor.' The investigation into the IAF-UPT and the USN-UPT shows the differences in training methods and objectives. Further analysis is presented of three aspects of flight training: the training effectiveness of military flight simulators, military training development, and the benefits of innovation in flight training. The Innovations referred to in the title of this thesis, 'Innovations in Basic Flight Training for the Indonesian Air Force', are derived from the analysis and transferred from the USN-UPT to improve IAF training.; Major, Indonesian Air Force
Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; The Indonesian Navy recognized the need for a computer security program over ten years ago. They published their first computer security regulation in 1981. But that regulation is now obsolete because of the advances in technology and the increased availability of powerful computer systems. As computer systems become bigger, more complicated, easier to use, more interconnected, and more important, they become more vulnerable to hackers, terrorist, and disgruntled employees. This thesis demonstrates the need for an updated computer security regulation. To add in meeting that need, the thesis proposes a security program for the Indonesian Navy that is based on the multilevel trusted computer criteria published by the NCSC in the 'Orange Book', the Canadian Trusted Product Evaluation Criteria and ITSEC. The proposed program includes additional regulations concerning physical security, data security, integrity and availability, and recommended trusted evaluation guide; http://archive.org/details/studyofcomputers00heru; Major, Indonesian Navy
Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; The Indonesian military has played a significant socio-political role since the independence struggle against the Dutch. Subsequently, the military continued its socio-political intervention, influencing political decisions in the military, domestic and international arenas. Most scholars consider the New Order regime (1966-1998) to have been one dominated by the military. However, this thesis concludes that the level of the military's socio-political participation has been declining in recent years. It also aims to present some reasons for this decline. The analysis involved the examination of the levels and types of military prerogatives and contestations the military exercised against the civilian leadership, allowing for both objective and subjective analyses to be conducted. The analysis conducted demonstrated that the Indonesian military's socio political role had been eroded in recent years. Suharto's policies featured prominently as causes of this decline; but pressures from within the military, Indonesian society as well as international pressures also dictated a reduction in the military's socio-political role. This reduction will continue into the future, although a total elimination of the military's socio-political role remains highly unlikely.; Lieutenant Colonel...
Approved for public release, distribution is unlimited; As a modern organization, the military becomes aware of the need for transition and it often becomes an agent of change for society. In the context of national development the military represents a major institution in the country of Indonesia. Its enormous size has made it the most powerful and well-organized group within Indonesian society, imparting modern values to the still traditional milieu. Thus, the Indonesian Armed Forces have a double function of playing a central role of contributing to the nation's development, first, as a defense and security force and secondly, as a socio-political force. The Indonesian Armed Forces as a modern institution has significantly contributed to the development of the Republic of Indonesia. This thesis will contribute toward a better understanding of the role of the armed forces and their contribution to national development.; Commander, Indonesian Navy
This research evaluated the functionality of the Planning, Programming and Budgeting System: (PPBS) in the Indonesian Navy. Specially, the objective was to determine the feasibility of improving the Indonesian Navy PPBS using the U.S. Navy model as a reference with, emphasis on the Budgeting phase. Research included conducting a review of the current processes in both systems. Several recommendations for improving the Indonesian Navy's system were made, including separating the Programming and Budgeting phases, establishing a team of dedicated budget analysts, and developing a budget review and reclama process similar to the one used in the U.S. Navy. Additional recommendations regarding the need for further evaluation of the organizational structure, culture and political influences that affect the budgeting phase in the Indonesian Navy were made for improving the Indonesian Navy's Budgeting phase.; NA; Indonesian Navy author.
Project management is very important to many industrial and governmental organizations. For governmental organizations, projects are vehicles for growth and improvement. In the Indonesian Navy for example, project management is needed to develop new warships, such as destroyers or submarines. The goal of project management is to ensure a high quality result. Generally speaking, quality is defined as adherence to specifications and high quality is defined as exceeding those specifications. Not meeting the specifications is unacceptable quality. For a project like building a warship, the Total Life Cycle Cost can be considered primarily as a function of four things: design, construction, operation and maintenance. The selection of the design and the contractor are one time decisions and cannot be changed over the life of the ship. In contrast, operation and maintenance are on-going management decisions, yet they are largely determined by the design selected and the quality of the contractor's work. To have the lowest Total Life Cycle Cost, the right design and the right contractor must be selected. This thesis develops a Design Review Checklist and a Contractor Review Checklist that can be used in reviewing the contractor's design and the contractor's quality management capabilities.; NA; Indonesian Navy author

(Presented 25 Aug 14); This paper provides a short study of Indonesia economic performance before July 1997 and an early diagnosis of the economic crisis in Indonesia which occurred from July 1997 to March 1998. After achieving a remarkable economic development success over the past several decades, Indonesia unavoidably had to face an economic difficulties. What are the causes of economic crisis? To answer this question is the purpose of this paper. The paper finds that the combination of several factors contributed to create the economic crisis, the factors are: Thailand's economic crisis; contagion/spillover effects; Indonesia's structural weakness, debt and crisis of confidence; globalization and integration within the financial/capital market; investors and panic-stricken lenders; speculative attacks; socio-political factors, haze and drought problems; and foreign exchange rate regimes.; http://www.archive.org/details/indonesiaeconomi00mama; Indonesian Navy author
Approved for public release, distribution unlimited; This thesis compares the performance of the Freedom Class Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) with five similar international frigates and corvettes in a littoral combat environment. The alternative ships are: Formidable class frigate, Singapore Navy; MILGEM (Milli Gemi) class corvette, Turkish Navy; Steregushchiy class frigate, Russian Navy; Sigma class corvette, Indonesian Navy; and Visby class corvette, Swedish Navy. The study is conducted within a fictitious scenario in the Strait of Hormuz, countering Iran's naval capabilities. Hughes's Salvo Equations Model is used to evaluate a variable number of friendly combatants versus a fixed opposing force. The results identify the number of ships required to dominate the threat in the scenario. Based on the comprehensive results, including changes by adding hardkill and introducing countermeasure effectiveness, an optimum design suggestion is made. In the end, optimum design is a relative subject because the issues of sustainment and cost play a significant role in the decision. LCS is shown to be the most combat-effective performer, but its cost detracts from its operational advantages. MILGEM is a medium size ship with high performance and lower cost...
