    Since 2010, Bogor Agricultural University (IPB) and the National Institute of Aeronautics and Space of Indonesia (LAPAN) have committed to work together in developing satellite in order to support the food security and environmental monitoring program in Indonesia. The LAPAN-IPB Satellite called “LISat” is designed and developed by LAPAN, and IPB will be responsible for developing algorithm and datasets application, in order to support the food security and environmental monitoring program. The LISat satellite will be launched in the mid of 2016 with PSLV Rocket in Sriharikota, India. Moreover, LAPAN-IPB collaboration is also intended to enhance the role of environmental satellite data such as NOAA, MODIS, LANDSAT and others, in order to more effectively support the research in agricultural, forestry, climate and marine resources.

    Through this LAPAN-IPB collaboration, the LISat task force have organized the International Symposium on LAPAN-IPB Satellite for Food Security and Environmental Monitoring (LISAT-FSEM) in 2014, 2015 and 2016, and co-hosted by:

    Bogor Agricultural University (IPB):
    Directorate of Research and Innovation, IPB (DRI-IPB), Indonesia
    Center for Environmental Research, Research and Community Services Institution, IPB (PPLH-LPPM, IPB), Indonesia
    National Institute of Aeronautics and Space of Indonesia (LAPAN), Indonesia
    This international symposium will focus on:

    To enhance beneficial use of satellite technology in the fields of agriculture, forestry, climate change, and marine resources, in terms of food security. This will be associated with the estimation of agricultural land and marine resource productivity as well as the system of Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of the REDD program (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation).
    To prepare and complete the processing chains of the existing environmental satellite data as well as the LISat-data utilization from upstream to downstream of the selected locations in accordance with the focus study.
