Behind The Name

Aksantara is a name given by a 2011 ITB Geology Engineering student, Akbar Prima Jaya

The name Aksantara is a fusion word from Sanskrit Aksan (Aakash and Aksa) which means the eyes of the sky and Tara (Nusa and Tara) which means islands. So that the Aksantara means eyes of the nusantara’s sky and also means a strong guardian of the nusantara’s sky (Guardian of The Sky) 

Behind The Logo

The logo of Aksantara is created by a 2011 ITB Product Design student , Larasati (Rara)


The logo has a philosophy that the two wings are meant the wings of Aksantara’s UAV. The wings shape itself inspired from the wide ears of an elephant–the symbol of ITB. In addition, brown elephant ivory was added below the wings to give a strong and firm impression as the meaning of ‘Aksantara’ itself, guardian of the sky
