    Drönarsvärmar inom ramen för spaningsuppdrag2022Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Today, drones are used in both a civilian and military context, a swarm being a group of autonomous drones which are partly controlled by an operator. Swarms are a concept that is still in the research stage and previous research has consisted of how a swarm will communicate with the operator and how the swarm will work technically. However, the problem with the research available today is that it largely lacks the military connection. Hence, this study has aimed to investigate how the Armed Forces want to use swarms in the context of reconnaissance missions. The questions posed were, how do personnel within the Armed Forces want to plan swarm missions? What behaviors and capabilities do Armed Forces personnel want a swarm to possess? How do Armed Forces personnel want to receive information from swarms? Empirical data were collected by conducting three interviews with three individuals employed by the Armed Forces. The empirical data was then analyzed using qualitative content analysis where the responses were divided into smaller groups and sub-groups.  The study resulted in tables of desired abilities and behaviors that can be used in later research to create a real swarm system.

    Lethal visions: the eye as function of the weapon2017In: Critical Studies on Security, ISSN 2162-4887, E-ISSN 2162-4909, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 62-80Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In measure to the development of projectile weaponry, the conduct of modern war has accorded perception with destruction, marshalling and enfolding human vision into ever more sophisticated sociotechnical assemblages of targeting. Drawing upon Paul Virilio’s notion of a ‘logistics of perception’, this article charts the four successive orders of targeting constituted by the alignment of the line of sight with the line of fire (aiming), the measurement of distance to a target (ranging), the trailing and prediction of a target’s movement (tracking) and the directed navigation to a target’s position in space (guiding). Alongside the functional specification of each of these orders is concurrently drawn out the accompanying corporeal regimentations of the organisms thus imbricated. With its capillaries now spanning the wider ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum, the contemporary war machine has however extended its sensorial reach far beyond the confines of its original human strictures. Its culmination may well lie in the advent of laser technology and the promise of a weaponisation of light itself through which the definitive coincidence of perception and annihilation is to be realised, even as it dispenses with the ocular orb.

    Den obemannade tröskeln2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den obemannade tröskeln är en uppsats på magisternivå efter avslutade studier på HOP1 vid Försvarshögskolan. Syftet med att skriva den var att försöka ge ett bidrag till anskaffningsprocessen av nya autonoma system till den svenska marinen. Detta gjordes genom att använda de tydligast framträdande dimensionerande teorierna ur svensk militärstrategisk doktrin och skapa ett analysverktyg utifrån detta, tillsammans med andra enligt författaren viktiga svenska kulturella principer, nämligen efterlevnaden av krigets lagar och hänsyn till kostnad.

    Studien är konstruerad som en kvalitativ, utforskande fallstudie med den svenska marinens undervattensförmåga som studerat fall. Resultaten visar på att marinen kan ha mycket stor nytta av dessa system, men att det initialt är viktigt att få ut system tidigt som direkt stödjer befintliga plattformar i deras verksamhet.
