Jakarta (ANTARA) - Head of the Indonesian Military (TNI) Health Center, Major General Budiman, has said that the military needs to develop nuclear, biological, and chemical (Nubika), as well as cyber health units to tackle modern threats.

“In the future, there will be potential threats and wars generated by the combination of fourth and fifth generation warfare with biological warfare, which could trigger the occurrence of biological asymmetric warfare and biocyber warfare," he underlined at the 2022 Health Technical Coordination Meeting.

The meeting was held at the TNI Headquarters, in Cilangkap, East Jakarta, on Wednesday.

The discovery of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) synthesis technology, which is expected to trigger the rise of Industrial Revolution 5.0 in the future, will further diversify the pattern of biological threats, which will indirectly affect the techniques and strategies regarding the development and utilization of biological warfare, he said.

"Hence, the military needs to prevent and counter the threats by developing a Nubika and cyber health unit, which is equipped with sophisticated facilities," he emphasized.

Thus, he said he expected that the TNI will always be solid, loyal, and professional in performing its duties.

The TNI Health Center has demonstrated concrete action and its role as a national health sub-system and national resilience support in handling the COVID-19 pandemic, Budiman added.

Furthermore, the implementation of penta-helix cooperation for handling the pandemic is essentially a civil-military collaboration, which has existed for a long time—since the era of the war of independence, he said.

The collaboration can be maintained well as long as the soldiers understand the TNI’s identity, ethics code, and principal task, he added.

"One manifestation of good civil-military collaboration is the operation of the Wisma Atlet COVID-19 Emergency Hospital," he noted.

Penta-helix cooperation refers to a collaboration between the government, academics, community, business, and media.
