Abstract [en]

In modern warfare the dependence on and interaction with technology is internationally undisputed. Starting from the currently used definition of the academic subject of Military-Technology in Sweden and Finland this interaction is analyzed with reference to Swedish and Finnish doctrine. An elaborate discussion is given about how progression in the subject of Military-Technology is achieved compared to other military sciences. This paper aims to highlight that the current focus on command levels might not necessarily be suitable for strengthening the war fighting capabilities. Finally, the Military-Technology connection and contribution to the war fighting capabilities will be discussed and emphasized. The shortcomings and pitfalls of the currently used methods will also be discussed. Furthermore, the necessity of having a Military-Technology perspective to increase quality and relevance in officers’ education is stressed because it is shown that the war fighting capabilities and Military-Technology interaction is strong based on the Swedish and Finnish doctrine.
