In the first 3 (three) years project of SEAWATCH Indonesia, BPPT has 12 (twelve) buoys whereas 10 (ten) buoys have been developed and the other 2 (two) buoys as spare to be assessed for its development in Indonesia.
The figure beside shows the locations of SEAWATCH Indonesia buoys. It is necessary to have a study before deploying the buoys, since only 12 (twelve) buoys are available. Factors to be considered are secured locations, the need of deployment and also the distance. Based on the discussion between Steering Committee and also Technical Committee, it was decided to deploy 4 (four) buoys in Malaka Straits and 6 (six) buoys in Java Sea. Below is the position of each buoy deployed by SEAWATCH Indonesia Project:
For data distribution, during the period of the project, there are five institutions have been connected to the SEAWATCH's server: Navy Hydro-oceanographic Services (DISHIDROS TNI AL), Meteorology and Geophysical Agencies (BMG), Directorate General of Sea Communication, Directorate General of Fisheries and Research Development Centre for Oceanology (P3O-LIPI). The connection for data distribution now is still using dial up connection, where each user has specific login name and password and the classification of data/information.
As our plan in the next future, we also do some research and development to improve the data distribution facilities. Regarding to these activities, BPPT has made a co-operation project with Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) to develop Indonesia Marine Information System (IMIS).
In the implementation program, we also some co-operation research with some institutions including expert exchange with Norway. To make the implementation program focused in the field of purpose, SEAWATCH Indonesia divide the program into 4 (four) fields of interest as follows:
