JAKARTA, KOMPAS – In order to face the threat of modern warfare as a consequence of Industry 4.0, Indonesia needs to transform its civil-military relations. A comprehensive defense concept must be implemented in the form of civil capability mobilization, especially in the aspect of technology mastery.

Civil involvement in defense can extend beyond physical matters, such as involvement in basic military training. As Indonesia prepares for its centenary in 2045, defense threats will increasingly involve cyber technology, electronics, chemicals and biological matters.
