Indonesia is an archipelago with a geographical location prone to natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions and tsunamis. One way to cope with this disaster is by optimizing disaster sensor communications on earth through satellite technology. One of satellite technologies that can be used for disaster sensor communication is by utilizing the VHF Data Exchange System (VDES). VDES is a maritime communication system using Very High Frequency (VHF). In this study the authors conducted a study of VDES implementation for sensor communication in Indonesia. This study will analyze and provide conclusions about the capacity and capability of VDES as transciever data of all disaster sensor platforms in Indonesia. From this study, it was concluded that VDES can be used as an alternative technology to support disaster sensor communication in Indonesia.
