The Indonesian Army has used computers to gather information for over 20 years. Computers have been installed throughout the entire Army organization, from Army Headquarters down to Army Main Region Commands and Army Branches. Data is currently collected from various Army units in remote areas, recorded by the Army Main Region Commands and Army Branches, and then sent to the Army Headquarters all via courier service. To improve the quality of Army's command and control and administration processes, the data must be accurate and timely. Therefore instead of sending the data manually via courier service, the data could be sent via electronic communication. This thesis analyzes the data collection process and recommends that the Army's computers be integrated via LANs at each major command and that long-haul connectivity be establish via satellites in a star topology. The Department of Defense Communication Agency can provide Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) service in single hop mode, and PT Lintasarta, a specialized data communication company, can provide data communication via Public Switched Packet Data Network (PSPDN) as a backup.
