Abstract [en]

In today's society, our everyday life has become increasingly digitalized and our environment is dependent on the connection to international networks, electronic communication and radio connections. This accessibility creates new opportunities for antagonistic attacks and generates a whole new form of warfare where the entire world is available. Information Operations have therefore gained an increasing role in armed conflicts when affect campaigns can be used to disseminate information or influence the decision making of military or civilian actors by "getting inside" the decision cycle in accordance with John Boyd's OODA loop often used in the context of the decision making. But the OODA loop is not sufficiently tested and an application within the context of the digitized world is of interest, since its development may possibly affect military warfare in the future.

The following study is a theoretical text analysis on Boyd’s model within the context of cyber- and netwar.

Based on selected indicators taken from the theory of the OODA loop, three articles linked to the concepts of cyberwar and netwar were analyzed in order to discover correlations between Boyd's OODA loop and the concepts.

The results show that the OODA loop is applicable to the concept, but further studies are required to measure the extent to which the OODA loop is applicable.
