Asep Karsidi, M.Sc
Asep Karsidi started his career at the Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology in 1981 in the Artificial Rain project. At that time, artificial rain was still a special project initiated by BPPT. Ten years later, in 1990, Asep Karsidi joined TISDA (Center for Natural Resources Inventory Technology) then became Director of TISDA BPPT in 1997.
In 2000, Asep Karsidi continued his study for Ph.D. at Adelaide University South Australia and finished the study it at the end of 2003. A year later, Dr. Asep Karsidi was elected as Head of the UPT (Technical Implementation Unit) of Artificial Rain.
Retracing the field of artificial rain, several important breakthroughs were made. Dr. Asep Karsidi popularized the term “Weather Modification Technology” (TMC) instead of “Artificial Rain”. “I have the idea that we can’t create rain but modify the weather conditions to increase rainfall and induces the rain,” he explained.
Dr. Asep Karsidi even managed the Artificial Rain UPT to be equally qualified compared to foreign institutions and winning an international tender for the TMC implementation in the mining concession area of PT. INCO in Soroako, South Sulawesi, in 2004/2005. At that time, the main competitor, the Weather Modification Inc (WMI) from the United States has failed to win the tender.
Although having business competition, Asep Karsidi took advantage of the momentum by inviting WMI to collaborate (2005-2006) in an effort to improve the potency of Weather Modification Technology. Some of UPT Artificial Rain scientists were even sent for training and internship at Fargo North Dakota, USA, (WMI campus).
In the field of TMC research, Dr. Asep Karsidi initiated the use of flare technology in Indonesia, including encouraging scientists from the UPT Artificial Rain to make flares made in Indonesia. “Among them are Djoko Gunawan and his friends,” he said.
The flare is a tube contained chemicals and seedling material mixture prepared in a way that the post-combustion smoke test shows particles in suitable size for cloud modification engineering. “The flare technology makes TMC operations more optimal,” he said.
Dr. Asep Karsidi also modified the Kingair aircraft belongs to PT. Survei Udara Penas (State Aerial Survey Company) to be used as a flare-based cloud seeding aircraft. When El Nino hit Indonesia around 2005, Dr. Asep Karsidi took quick action by facilitating the Water Bombing operation and bringing in the BE200 aircraft from Russia based on the request from BAKORNAS PB-Coordinating Ministry of Welfare.
In 2007, Dr Asep Karsidi resigned from the UPT Artificial Rain and was appointed as Deputy Minister for People’s Welfare for Social Vulnerability in charge of the establishment of BNPB (National Agency for Disaster Management).
Nevertheless, Asep Karsidi still hopes that the leaders and the extended family of BBTMC will be more proactive in improving the potency of weather modification technology. “Weather modification is not only focused on increasing and decreasing rainfall. But the successors are also able to create new technological breakthroughs based on the technological developments demands and the changes acceleration in the natural environment,” he said.
Dr. Asep Karsidi was appointed as Head of BAKOSURTANAL in 2010 with the achievement of issuing the Geospatial Information Law (UU IG) in 2011. BAKOSURTANAL also changed its name to the Geospatial Information Agency. Dr. Asep Karsidi also initiated the One Map Policy and the construction of the Ina Geoportal as a sharing platform with stakeholders in the field of geospatial information.

Currently, apart from being the market leader and largest investor among IOCs (International Oil Companies) in the downstream oil and gas sector (lubricants, retail/gas stations, fuel industry, etc.), Shell has returned as one of the main players in the upstream sector (Masela PSC, Pulau Moa PSC).
Shell was Darwin’s second oil and gas company, after early in his professional career he worked as a geophysicist at BP (British Petroleum) for more than 9 years – including 3-year placements at BP Houston (America), London (UK) and Aberdeen (Scotland). Darwin’s operational experience is not only in multinational, but also national companies. Despite the comforts of being in a multinational company, Darwin was motivated to learn new skills and contribute to Indonesia’s economic development by working for 4 years in a national conglomerate with the position as Director at Dharmala Group and Bakrie & Brothers.
When the Ministry of SOEs was first established, Darwin was one of the several private professionals who joined as senior Government Officials. Darwin worked as a Director (6/1998 – 12/1999) with a portfolio of SOEs in the telecommunications, energy and transportation sectors, and also played a significant role in developing a blueprint for the overall reform of SOEs to become world-class competitive companies. For this reason, Darwin’s work experience is often described as complete – in Multinational, National conglomerate and Government Institution.
Prior to serving at Shell, Darwin was the CEO of strategic management consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton Indonesia (later changed to Booz&Co and now known as Strategy&) – a company based in the United States for more than 7 years. As a consultant and learner-practitioner of strategy and transforming leadership, Darwin advises on the strategic issues and assists the CEOs or corporate leaders and Government Officials to develop and implement the strategies and organizational transformation programs to build world-class competitiveness.
Darwin completed his Bachelor of Physics from the Universitas Indonesia in 1985, an MBA with awards in 1993 at the University of Houston (Texas), MMR (Master of Management Research) at the University of Western Australia (Perth) in 2007 and AMP (Advanced Management Program) at Harvard Business. School (Boston, United States) in 2003.
Born in Hinalang village, Balige sub-district, North Sumatra, May 2, 1962. Darwin grew up and completed his primary and secondary education in Siborong borong (North Sumatra) before moving to Jakarta at the age of 15. Darwin is married to Martha Tobing and has two children, Nathania and Daniel.
Haryo Sumowidagdo Ph.D
Born in Bali, October 25, 1976 is an Indonesian scientist working at CERN (Conseil Européene pour la Recherche Nucléaire) or the European Organization for Nuclear Research. A complex of the world’s largest particle acceleration laboratory located in the border of France and Switzerland, west of Geneva where thousands of scientists, especially of the particle physics community perform the joint experiments.
Haryo Sumowidagdo obtained his Ph.D. from Florida State University after received his Bachelor and Master degrees from Universitas Indonesia. After completing his studies, Haryo found a job as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Riverside (UCR). The particle physics research group at UCR is involved in an experiment called CMS at CERN, and he will be stationed at CERN. In 2009, Haryo moved from Fermilab in Chicago to CERN in Geneva.
Activities at CERN
At CERN, Haryo Sumowidagdo serves as a technician, supervisor, and physicist. As technician, he arranges the guidance and control programs for his experimental apparatus. Apparatus for particle physics experiment is not available in stores. As a supervisor, he guides and assists the doctoral students when they have questions. His interactions with students are two-way relation, since sometimes he also asks them questions. As a physicist, Haryo analyzes data to measure the physical quantities or search for new discoveries in the field of physics. Then, of course, writes scientific articles and publishes them in scientific journals.
Currently, Haryo is indirectly involved in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) project. He becomes a member of the Compact Muon Solenois (CMS), a particle physics experiment located at the LHC. LHC itself is part of CERN. The LHC is an accelerator / particle accelerator. An accelerator is a machine that can accelerate things. Like the gas pedal in a car that can increase the speed of the car from rest to high speed. Zarah (adapted from Arabic) is something very small, invisible, but is the raw material that makes up all the things we see around us. Inside the LHC, the particles are accelerated almost to the speed of light. These high-speed particles then collide with each other. In the collision, other particles can be created which are then seen by the experimental tools of particle physics. The LHC is an underground tunnel that forms a circular path with a diameter of eight km. Soekarno-Hatta Airport can be placed inside the LHC circle. The location of the LHC is near the city of Geneva in Switzerland. Part of the LHC circle is on the territory of France, part of it is on the territory of Switzerland.
Working at CERN, one must complete undergraduate education. Then, continues with the postgraduate education and joins a university/research group that has research activities at CERN. Many universities/research institutes (PT/LP) from 66 countries conducting research at CERN. Scientists at CERN come from 66 countries having participating institutions in the research at CERN. Then, there are personnel aside these 66 countries who work for one of the PT/LPs in these 66 countries (such as Haryo from Indonesia who doesn’t have a PT/LP to perform research at CERN, but works for UCR performing research at CERN) . There are currently citizens from 97 countries residing at CERN. CERN alone employs around 2,500 personnel, and there are around 10,000 visitors each year as visiting researchers. CERN is one of the largest international organizations in Geneva.
Drs. Karliansyah, M.Si
Since he was a student, MR Karliansyah has loved the environment. In 1989, he joined the Center for Human Resources and Environment Research, Universitas Indonesia. Karliansyah started his career as a Civil Servant Candidate (CPNS) when the Environmental Impact Management Agency (Bapedal) was formed based on a Presidential Decree.
