Interview dengan Prof. Oetarjo Diran, vi.

Prolog

Bambang Irawan Soemarwoto: Kebetulan menemukan buku International Cooperation between Politics and Practice yang ditulis Mei Li Vos (2001). Dalam buku itu ada bagian yang berjudul ‘Indonesian – Dutch Cooperation in the Aerospace Industry’ yang isinya:

“… about a long standing cooperation (1979-1999) in aerospace industry between Indonesia and the Netherlands. The initial objective of the first part of the program, the TTA-79 project, was to design, construct and operate the Indonesian Low Speed Wind tunnel (ILST) at the national research centre in Serpong, south-west of Jakarta. Also, included in the project’s objectives were human resource development and support for the department of mechanical engineering at the Institute of Technology in Bandung (ITB). In the course of years the cooperation in aerospace industry underwent changes and focus …”

Bagian yang hanya 15 halaman ini diakhir dengan paragraf menarik:

A close friend of president Habibie is sombre about past endeavours and what it has led to in 1999. Looking back on the decision to build an Indonesian aerospace industry, he summarized the problem:

“In hindsight it may have been wrong. We got help from everybody … They knew that we could not compete anyway. They said you can do it and so we did it. Habibie thought that we had a critical mass of professional people to build up an industry … But it was absurd, far from the Indonesian reality. We did not know at the time. We thought we had the money, everybody said we had to do it … We forgot the time factor and culture factor. It needs time, we cannot do it in ten years. We are very slow, the organizing knowledge and experience is very low. I am not going to blame the Dutch, but we have never had the mandate to think.”

Oleh: Hari Tjahjono*

SAYA mulai mengenal lebih mendalam Prof. O. Diran, atau biasa saya panggil Pak Diran saja, ketika mengambil tugas perancangan pesawat I dan II di Jurusan Teknik Penerbangan ITB. Sebelumnya saya hanya mengenal beliau sebagai dosen “killer”, dosen yang sangat cerdas, sekaligus dosen yang nyeleneh. Sangat cerdas dan nyeleneh rupanya memang saling berhubungan dan saling mempengaruhi yang akhirnya menjadi karakter yang built-in dan genuine dalam diri Pak Diran. Mungkin beliau sendiri tidak sadar akan hal ini.

Ketika menjadi kepala bagian Aerodinamika Teoretis perusahaan Messerscmidt-Boelkow-Blohm, GmbH, Jerman Barat, 1968, ia menangani perancangan profil transonik tanpa gelombang kejut. Atau dikenal juga sebagai profil superkritis. Saat itulah Oetarjo Diran terpesona akan kemampuan komputer.

Oetarjo Diran : Bos Tanpa Anak Buah

KERTAS, map, buku-buku, dan bundel laporan ada di mana-mana. Tak mengherankan bila tumpukannya hampir menenggelamkan meja kerja, menyita setengah lantai ruangan. Begitulah ruang kerja Prof. Oetarjo Diran, penyelidik kecelakaan pesawat terbang, yang cuma berukuran 15 meter persegi di lantai II Gedung Departemen Perhubungan, Jalan Medan Merdeka Barat, Jakarta Pusat.
