Abstract : Continuing development of LAPAN satellite, Satellite Technology Center of LAPAN develops Indonesian microsatellite. This satellite development continues from the heritage of LAPAN-A1/TUBSAT which is still in orbit and operational since 2007. Recently LAPAN developed LAPAN-A2/ORARI and LAPAN-A3/IPB. LAPAN-A2 carries amateur payload, Automatic Identification System (AIS), and also surveillance payload. The amateur payload are voice repeater and automatic packet reporting system (APRS) which will be used to support amateur communication during disaster mitigations in Indonesia. The AIS will be used to monitor maritime traffic in equatorial and become unique ship surveillance mission. The surveillance payload will use video and digital space camera with better resolutions than LAPAN-A1/TUBSAT satellite. In addition to that LAPAN-A2 has on board recording for video and digital image capturing in remote areas. Development of LAPAN-A2 is done and only waiting for launch with PSLV Rocket in India while LAPAN-A3/IPB in detail design stage and will be launch in middle of 2015. LAPAN-A3 satellite will carry several payloads such as an experimental line scan imager payload, high resolution digital space camera with 4 megapixel images, Automatic Identification Systems (AIS), Earth Magnetic Field sensor and Automatic Packet Relay System (APRS) for data communication. Beside LAPAN-A2 and LAPAN-A3, LAPAN has also put into the program list, of LAPAN-A4 and LAPAN-A5. LAPAN-A5 will be developed under cooperation with Chiba University with SAR Missions. In this talk, we will describe the development of LAPAN-A2 and LAPAN-A3 and other LAPAN satellite program.
