Lockheed Martin agreed at the show this week to forge a teaming agreement with PT CMI Teknologi to pursue the NASRI (National Airspace Surveillance–Republic of Indonesia) program. This NASRI project seeks to greatly enhance the Indonesian military’s ability to maintain air sovereignty over the country’s widely spread territory, which includes 17,000-plus islands.

Not only will NASRI extend military coverage, but data feeds will significantly enhance civilian air traffic control. Under their NASRI proposal, LM and CMI plan to produce more than 40 new TPS-77 and FPS-117 long-range surveillance radars in Indonesia.
