GomSpace provides update on maritime monitoring program in Indonesia
The Indonesian government has publicly unveiled its plans to launch a 20-satellite constellation with satellites from Denmark. The financing plan, based on MoU with Denmark ratified on June 14, 2023, is yet to be concluded.
Following the December 22, 2023, press release, concerning the contract for 20 satellites for Indonesia's Ministry of Marine Affairs & Fisheries, with a value of approx. 650 MSEK, discussions on government-to-government financing are still pending. Further updates are anticipated in Q2 2024.

On March 6, 2024, Indonesia unveiled their plan to launch a satellite network for maritime monitoring, with the satellites from Denmark and the first satellite flying in July 2024.

In anticipation of this timeframe, GomSpace is concurrently undertaking essential satellite and launch preparations.

The Indonesian maritime surveillance program is linked to the memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Indonesian Government, ratified on June 14, 2023. The MoU outlines a potential 1 billion Euro infrastructure project financing from Denmark to Indonesia.

The fact that they are now committed to building a business in Denmark to support Danish export growth, is a testament to their commitment to success in our joint Indonesian project”.
