In many developing countries, including Indonesia, the military has an advantage over civilian institutions. This advantage is reflected in the resources that make the military often asked for collaboration in civilian tasks. This study discusses the cooperation between civilians and the military, in this case the Indonesian Air Force in terms of border security between Indonesia and West Kalimantan, especially in terms of the pattern of cooperation and the challenges faced. The method used in this study is a qualitative method, with the informants selected by purposive sampling technique, and the use of the NVivo12 application in processing the data. The results of the study show that collaboration between civilians and the military in terms of securing land borders between Indonesia and Malaysia is still very limited and the opportunity to continue to be developed is wide open, in an effort to better maintain border security.
