    Allmänt säkerhetsvakuum under Irakkriget 2003 - en effekt av modern krigföring?2004Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Irakkriget 2003 manifesterade evolutionen av den moderna krigföringen som gått emot enverklighet där politiska mål kan uppnås med allt mindre förband som kostar mindre resurser. Demoderna förbanden har ändock en allt större effekt i att kunna bekämpa en motståndaren påslagfältet och härigenom kan de bemannas med allt färre soldater som verkar på fältet.Efter en intervention i en främmande stat är det av största vikt att under den första kritiskaperioden efter sönderfallet att etablera säkerhet och stabilitet. Denna undersökning har somambition att svara på huruvida modern krigföring och moderna förband bidrog till ett allmäntsäkerhetsvakuum under Irakkriget 2003 under denna kritiska period.Undersökningens resultat är att förutsättningarna för ett allmänt säkerhetsvakuum fanns iIrak innan kriget 2003. Koalitionens förband och krigföringsmetoder var bidragande orsaker till attsläppa loss krafter som redan skapats av den forna regimen under lång tid.Den övergripande slutsatsen är att det centrala vid operationen av detta slag är attomedelbart ha förband med tillräckligt antal soldater på fältet för att kunna etablera säkerhet ochstabilitet i territoriet. Av detta följer också att planeringen av denna kritiska period måste görasinnan kriget börjar och det måste finnas en vilja att satsa de resurser detta kräver.

    Al-Qaeda och Gulfkartellen: en studie om våldsamma icke-statliga aktörers begränsningar gällande global påverkan2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Violent Non-state Actors (VNSA) such as Criminal and Terrorist organisations or Warlords have become a more prominent actor of our time. The main goal of this study is to find limitations to violent non-state actors potential for global influence by conducting a case study of two different VNSA: Al-Qaeda and The Gulf Cartel. The purpose of this study is to contribute to the rather sparse field of studies about violent non-state actors by using the analytic framework by Ersel Aydinli called ARI. The empirical material is analysed by using a qualitative method, to examine how if these actors are by any means limited in their potential for global influence. The result of the analysis shows that the two units being examined are being restricted by inner variables more so than being affected from the outside.

    Al-Qaeda’s Terrorist Threat to UNIFIL2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    On August 11, 2006, in response to the 34-day summer war between Israel and Hizb’allah, the United Nations Security Council passed resolution 1701, which called for a more robust international military presence along the United Nations-drawn Blue Line dividing Israel and southern Lebanon. But the strengthened United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) is likely to face a range of security threats that could undermine its peacekeeping duties and endanger its personnel. Among the more serious threats, underscored by intelligence reports over the past few years that indicate a growing al-Qaeda presence in Lebanon, is a catastrophic terrorist attack against UNIFIL by local salafist jihadist entities.

    Alternativa Drivmedel som Enhetsdrivmedel2013Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Fossil fuels currently account for the vast majority of the total amount of fuel that isconsumed globally every day. Alternatives to fossil fuels are needed to ensuresufficient supply in the future. The Swedish Armed Forces have been tasked by theGovernment to investigate and examine the possibility of operating their vehicles onrenewable fuels.Military organizations strive for the use of a single fuel concept. A single fuel conceptmeans that only one kind of fuel is used in all vehicles and machines. The majorreason for this is the simplified logistics that can be achieved if only one fuel is used.This paper has sought an alternative fuel that can also be used as a single fuel in theSwedish Armed Forces. In order to solve the problem of changing to a renewable andto a single fuel in one single step.The main conclusion drawn in this paper is that Fischer-Tropsch fuels have thepotential to be a single fuel from a technical perspective. The high flashpoint ofFischer-Tropsch fuels could mean that they might also be used in navy vessels.However, there is currently insufficient availability and production is in thedevelopment stages.

    Alternativa drivmedel: Vilket alternativt drivmedel uppfyller bäst Försvarsmaktens behov?2009Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay is written within my education for Technical Officer in the Swedish armed forces. The essay describes the alternative fuels that the Swedish armed forces can make use of if the supply of fossil fuels is insecure. The alternative fuels that are described and compared are; Synthetic diesel, Organic diesel, Methanol and Ethanol. The essay describes the process of producing the alternatives, the need for modification and the economics for each alternative. The alternatives are compared and assessed for their ability to secure the supply of fuel to the Swedish Armed Forces. The result of the study is that, while synthetic diesel has the best chemical constitution but is not produced in Sweden, the best alternative fuel for the Swedish armed forces at this moment is organic diesel.

    Amber Nine: NATO's Secret Use of a Flight Path over Sweden and the Incorporation of Sweden in NATO's Infrastructure2009In: Journal of contemporary history, ISSN 0022-0094, E-ISSN 1461-7250, Vol. 44, no 2, p. 287-307Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    All through the 1950s and 1960s NATO had secretly utilized a secret flight path, called Amber Nine, over the southwestern part of Sweden. The Swedish government condoned the frequent overflights, despite the fact that Sweden was at the time professing to follow a policy of neutrality in the power struggle between the two superpowers. This article argues that the frequent American use of Amber Nine should be viewed as a materialization of Sweden's consent to US hegemony, and that Amber Nine effectively made Swedish airspace and airports a part of NATO's infrastructure. It also makes the case that the arrangement contributed to the eradication of the credibility of Sweden's policy of neutrality, and that NATO's routine use of a flight path over Sweden, a non-NATO country, warrants a reinterpretation of Sweden's role in the Cold War on NATO's northern flank, as well as challenging the definition of the NATO alliance.

    Amerikansk utrikes- och säkerhetspolitik kopplad till EU:s militära krishanteringsförmåga2001Student paper otherStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The essay analyses American foreign and security policy conducted verbally by predecessors of the Clinton and Bush administrations due to the development of the military crises response capabilities of the European Union. The analysed period stretches from year 2000 until the first quarter of year 2001.

    The analysis aims at determining if there are any substantial divergences regarding the policies of the two administrations. The analysis also aims at conducting a brief prediction in what principal features the Bush administration will continue to conduct their policy on European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP) until the end of their term of office.

    In order to accomplish the analysis it is based on a model of Kjell Goldmann suggesting that international-political action is affected by ideological and domestic-strategic considerations. Above that, in order to increase perspicuity the empirical matters, statements and arguments, are categorized in schools of thought.

    The author can establish that nothing indicates substantial divergences in the policies conducted by the two administrations on the matter of development of the military crises response capabilities of the European Union. Slight discrepancies in the political rhetoric’s is all that is indicated.

    The future policy of the Bush administration on the issue of ESDP will most likely be a continuation of the already established policy implying an American support as long as it won’t counteract with American national interests.

    Amerikanska marinkåren under Irakkrigen 1991 och 2003: manöverkrigföring i teorin och praktiken?2005Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish doctrines emphasises the use of maneuver warfare in combat. Therefore we need tounderstand how a modern state can transform maneuver theories in doctrine into combat practice.United States Marine Corps, a joint armed force in itself, has participated in both Desert Stormand Iraqi Freedom and has since the 1980’s used a maneuver warfare concept. The aim of thisessay is to describe and explain to what degree USMC has conducted maneuver warfare in theIraq wars 1991 and 2003 according to maneuver theory, in the light of how maneuver warfareis thought to be conducted in accordance with then present warfighting doctrines. Theconclusions are that USMC has followed their doctrines in part; the Desert Storm warfaredeviated more from doctrine than the Iraqi Freedom warfare regarding maneuver warfare. At thesame time there was a slightly higher degree of maneuver warfare in accordance with maneuvertheory during Iraqi Freedom than during Desert Storm. There are multiple explanations to thisbut one of the most important reason is that the Corps has had a longer period of time toimplement and train according to doctrine. There exist a number of independent variables thathave an impact on the degree of maneuver warfare - such as weather, the enemy and the terrain –but they are assessed to have a totally equal impact on war fighting in both wars. There is aninherited dependence on the general use of firepower, as a complement to movement, beingviewed upon as an important tool to shatter enemy cohesion and will to fight. This could be aa result of the Desert Storm experience and was implemented in doctrine prior to Iraqi Freedomand is a clear divergence from maneuver theory.

    Amerikanska marinkårens taktik med pansarvärnsrobotför-band i Operation Desert Storm: Av relevans för svenska armén idag?2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande arbete tar sin utgångspunkt i en observation av hur United States Marine Corps (USMC) använde pansarvärnsrobotförband förvånansvärt aggressivt under Gulfkriget 1991. Med syftet att studera denna taktik och att därigenom skapa en ökad förståelse för pansarvärnsrobotförbandens taktiska möjligheter/begränsningar skapas en problemformulering som undersöker vilken relevans USMC:s taktik med pansarvärnsrobotförband i Operation DESERT STORM har för svenska armén idag? För att kunna besvara denna övergripande fråga bryts den ned till tre forskningsfrågor som beskriver vilken taktik som karaktäriserade USMC:s pansarvärnsrobotförband, därefter förklarar motiven för denna taktik och slutligen värderar vilka lärdomar som svenska armén kan dra från detta 2012.

    Resultatet visar att marinkårens taktik i huvudsak har låg relevans på grund av de unika förutsättningar avseende terräng, siktförhållanden och teknikasymmetri som förelåg i Persiska viken 1991. Terrängen var nästan helt platt vilket gav god effekt för pansarvärnsrobotarnas övertag i skjutavstånd gentemot irakiska stridsvagnar. Oljerök och dimma gjorde att deras termiska sikten kunde verka där inga irakiska motsvarigheter fanns. Konceptet Combined Anti Armor Team bedöms värt att beakta för armén inom ramen för kombinerade vapen och slutförande av Insatsorganisation 2014.

    Abstract [en]

    This essay deals with the Amphibious battalion 2014 and maneuver warfare theory, in order to examine whether there exists a causal relationship between military theory and the actual design of an organization.The method is based on a case study of a single organization and an analysis tool, created by the author, which takes as its basis conclusions concerning maneuver warfare, and individual authors' theories. The analysis tool is based on six different parts which consists of general - and specific terms, set against the empirical data as in this case is the Amphibious battalion 2014.The results of the analysis show that there are many similarities between theory and organization, and above all, this can be detected from the specific part of the analysis. On the whole, the analy-sis shows that a causal relationship between theory and form of organization may exist.Key words:Maneuver warfare, William S. Lind, Amphibious battalion 2014, causal relationship.

    Abstract [en]

    The transformation of the Swedish Armed Forces after the end of the Cold War, with enhanced tasks in the future to contribute within PSOs, generate a need of new combat capabilities within the Amphibious Brigade. This essay is especially considersi in particular, ng indirect systems for ground and sea combat in the phase of year 2010-2020, but will describe capabilities in general which can be valid to all indirect systems of combat. The vision and objectives of the strategic level, future conflicts and combat environments, and the technological potentials are the foundations of this essay. Alongside the guidance from the Military strategic level, the essay consider the assessments and opinions made in the ongoing studies within the Amphibious Forces and the organisations for research, development and procurement, FOI and FMV.The essay describes the complexity involved in the creation of a new architecture of systems and armed forces in an environment where old boundaries need to be crossed. The need of engagement systems with enhanced availability, mobility and range are crucial qualities for the most significant capabilities. Precision engagement, interoperability and control in even a larger area stipulate new demands for new and old capabilities in a different combat environment.The essay enunciates a continued need of integrated systems with an autonomous capability in order to maintain perseverance in an environment of degraded C3.

    Abstract [en]

    This essay is written in the course of War science during the author’s studies to become an Officer in the technical corps, in the Swedish armed forces. Due to the descriptive method in Explosive Ordnance Disposal and demining in modern conflict the reader gets an exposé of the basics, history, and present time features for the Swedish EOD- and Demining personnel. The main purpose with this essay is to discuss the problems that Swedish Explosive ordnance clearance (EOC) personnel might encounter in their current daily service. The opportunities for parts of the supporting technical corps and the technical equipment for detecting, locating and classifying mines, Explosive remnants of war (ERW), Improvised explosive device (IED) and booby-traps to be at hand in the process of solving these problems are also discussed. From interviews and literature studies the author conducts predictions of the development in the subject area. The predictions contains amongst others a more understandable supporting technical corps and multi-sensing-platforms for detecting, locating and classifying mines, ERW, IED and booby-traps. Some of the research that the Swedish defence research agency (FOI), the Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) and the Swedish EOD- and Demining Centre (SWEDEC) have produced is presented in the essay.

    An Art-Based Leadership Intervention for Enhancement of Self-Awareness, Humility, and Leader Performance2014In: Journal of Personnel Psychology, ISSN 1866-5888, E-ISSN 2190-5150, Vol. 13, no 2, p. 97-106Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study represents a new cross-disciplinary approach. A year-long art-based leadership intervention was compared to conventional leadership training using a random allocation design. The study has examined whether the art-based intervention has a stronger beneficial impact on leaders' development than the conventional program. Comparison was made utilizing leaders' self-ratings and subordinates' ratings of their leaders' frequency of expressed laissez-faire leadership and capacity to cope with stress. Our findings show a striking difference in the development between the two groups. In addition to displaying less laissez-faire behavior, the leaders in the art intervention appear to have improved their self-awareness, humility, and stress coping, while contrasting results were noted in the conventional group. These findings confirm the earlier results in our research.

    An examination of the implementation of risk based approaches in military operations2014In: Journal of Military Studies, ISSN 1799-3350, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 1-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Today several nations utilise risk based approaches in military planning. However, the discussion on limitations with the approaches in regard to aspects such as uncertainties, the nature of the threat and risk to civilians is limited.

    The aim of this work is to identify important challenges when applying risk based approaches to military activity. This article discusses risk based approaches in general and their military applications. Five generic quality requirements on risk analysis are presented from research in risk philosophy. Two military application areas for risk analysis: military intelligence, and risk management in legal assessments are analysed in relation to the presented quality requirements on risk analysis.

    From the analysis it is clear that risk analysis is an integral part of the decision-making analysis and cannot be separated in time, space or organisationally from the decision-making process in general. Defining the scenario to analyse, including the time span, is a central task in risk analysis and will affect every aspect of the risk estimation. Therefore, the principles for scenario definition must be communicated and continuously updated throughout the organisation. Handling the uncertainties throughout the process is also important, especially if the aim is a resilient military system.

    An Experimental Approach to Improve on the Situational Awareness of Soldiers Transported in an Armored Vehicle2011In: Stockholm Contributions in Military-Technology 2010 / [ed] Åke Sivertun, Stockholm: Försvarshögskolan , 2011, 1, p. 95-106Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Inside armored vehicles, such as e.g. Hägglunds CV90 or Mowag Piranha, the possibilities for looking out are rather limited. That is especially true for the soldiers being transported inside the personnel compartment. Because of this, the soldiers are in effect expected to put themselves into harms way with very limited knowledge of what is happening outside the vehicle. One possible way to improve the situational awareness inside an armored vehicle is to have screens showing live images of the outside environment. The current investigation utilizes a set of carefully placed cameras connected to screens streaming live images inside the vehicle. It is found that this will significantly improve the situational awareness of the soldiers inside the armored vehicle. Field trials conducted in a realistic environment show that a careful placement of the cameras and the screens will increase the safety, and the efficiency, of the soldiers when they dismount the vehicle.

    Abstract [en]

    A case study approach, based on interviews and document reviews, was used to analyze the systems engineering processes of the SEP (Armored Multirole Vehicle, in Swedish) and the Visby class corvette cases respectively. The focus was on signature management. The result is a thorough investigation of what worked in the cases studied. The main conclusions can be summarized in three points. 1) A preferred workflow from mission analysis to sub system design has been derived from lessons identified; 2) The three main success factors identified were: building technology demonstrators, having an Integrated Product Team approach, and establishing stealth as a key system design goal; 3) Coherence and traceability between military needs on the battlefield and signature requirements need further research.

    An exploratory study of the association between the Big-Five personality dimensions, the use of upward influencing tactics ans political skills with military staff members' perveived performance2017In: Scandinavian Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology, E-ISSN 2002-2867, Vol. 2, no 1, article id 8Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose was to explore the relationship and mediation effects between the Big Five personality dimensions, and political skill with military staff members’ perceived performance. The sample included 185 Armed Forces International staff members from several military education facilities. The results indicated that the PSI and several personality dimensions were positively correlated with individuals’ perceived performance. In addition, the personality dimension Conscientiousness acted as a statistically significant mediator between an individual’s use of political skills and their perceived performance. Practical considerations and future research directions are suggested.

    An idea paper on leadership theory integration2012In: Management Research Review, ISSN 2040-8269, E-ISSN 2040-8277, Vol. 35, no 3/4, p. 177-191Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to pursue an idea on leadership theory integration which includes two integrative attempts. The first involves three different leadership models (the developmental/transformational leadership model, the authentic leadership model, and the indirect leadership model). The second consists of a suggestion of how this integrated model, in turn, can be integrated into an interactional person-by-situation paradigm including a process-over-time perspective.

    Design/methodology/approach – A qualitative analysis of the three existing leadership models mentioned above was performed. In the second integrative step, the following concepts were added: individual characteristics (general and stable as well as specific, of importance in a given situation); contextual characteristics (general more stable contextual profile as well as specific contextual profile in a given situation); appraisal and sensemaking processes over time; trust; and psychological capital.

    Findings – An integrated leadership model is proposed which rests on three explicit hypotheses with two addendums. Empirical support for the suggested model is evaluated.

    Practical implications – The presented idea may be of value in recruitment and selection, leadership development programmes, and organisational design.

    Originality/value – The theoretical integration of existing models is new and could act as a conceptual bridge.

    An integrative research framework to unravel the interplay of natural hazards and vulnerabilities2018In: Earth's Future, ISSN 1384-5160, E-ISSN 2328-4277, Vol. 6, no 3, p. 305-310Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Climate change, globalization, urbanization, social isolation, and increased interconnectednessbetween physical, human, and technological systems pose major challenges to disaster risk reduction(DRR). Subsequently, economic losses caused by natural hazards are increasing in many regions of theworld, despite scientific progress, persistent policy action, and international cooperation. We argue thatthese dramatic figures call for novel scientific approaches and new types of data collection to integratethe two main approaches that still dominate the science underpinning DRR: the hazard paradigm and thevulnerability paradigm. Building from these two approaches, here we propose a research framework thatspecifies the scope of enquiry, concepts, and general relations among phenomena. We then discuss theessential steps to advance systematic empirical research and evidence-based DRR policy action.

    “An undisturbed afternoon of writing”: a qualitative study of professors’job satisfaction2019In: Journal of Applied Research in Higher Education, ISSN 2050-7003, E-ISSN 1758-1184Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to model factors that contribute to job satisfaction amonguniversity professors.Design/methodology/approach – The approach was qualitative; 12 in-depth interviews were conductedwith Swedish university full professors representing 11 different academic subjects.Findings – Five facets of job satisfaction were identified: distal environment (e.g. impact on society and thescientific community), proximal social environment, self (e.g. receiving external credit and experiencinginternal pride), the uplifts of daily life and formal conditions (e.g. pay and opportunities to continue afterretirement). A model was inductively developed according to which professors’ job satisfaction is influencedby interacting contextual and individual antecedent conditions.Research limitations/implications – Because a qualitative approach was used, with a limited number ofinformants, there is a lack of representativeness and the concepts generated are of a sensitizing rather than adefinitive character.Practical implications – Attention should be paid to university professors’ need for autonomy, otherwisepublic management control strivings may become counter-productive.Originality/value – A new model of professors’ job satisfaction with a richness of details was developed.

    Abstract [en]

    The defence bills of 2009 and 2015 seem to have provided a break in trend as regards Swedish defence planning. The trend seems to be that the Swedish Armed Forces are yet again focused on defending Sweden. Therefore, this paper seeks to analyse the driving forces for the Swedish military strategy within the defence bills of 2009 and 2015. This paper draws on Graham Allison and Philip Zelikow´s theoretical framework constituting one model of analysing rational decision-making. The study uses qualitative text analysis to examine the empirical data in order to allow different themes within the text to emerge. The results of this analysis suggest that the rational model does not entirely explain the driving forces underlying Swedish military strategy within the defence bills from 2009 and 2015. Nevertheless, findings indicate two key orientations influencing current Swedish military strategy. These are the will and desire to cooperate and an awareness of a more uncertain global geopolitical climate and security environment.

    Analys och jämförelse av SEAD-förmågorna hos JAS 39 Gripen samt en svensk UCAV år 20152002Student paper otherStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att jämföra/analysera förmågorna till Suppression of Enemy Air Defences (SEAD) hosJAS 39 och en svensk UCAV år 2015. Årtalet 2015 är valt för att flera bedömare anser att det är först vid dennatidpunkt som en Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (UCAV) har en utvecklingsnivå som tillåter att de sätts in i SEADuppdrag.I uppsatsen redovisas vilka krav som ställs på en plattforms sensorer och bekämpningsförmåga för attgenomföra ett SEAD-uppdrag mot två utvalda typer av mål. Därefter sker en jämförelse mellan de båda farkosternasförmåga att detektera respektive bekämpa de båda målen. Resultatet visar att JAS 39 som bemannad plattform har enfördel i de fall då operationer är hårt styrda av Rules of Engagement (ROE), särskilt gäller detta vid fredsbevarandeoperationer. Uppsatsen visar även att flygplanradarns förmåga att upptäcka och identifiera markmål är beroende avinförandet av en SAR-mod. Vidare konstateras att en UCAV genom att vara obemannad och signaturanpassad kan tastörre risker vid vapenleverans än JAS 39 Gripen, samt att en liten och signaturanpassad UCAV har stora svårigheteratt bära konventionella signalsökande robotar. En av slutsatserna visar på svårigheterna att med kameror i en UCAVåstadkomma en visuell omvärldsuppfattning liknande den för en pilot. För båda plattformarna gäller att SEADkapacitetenmot en radarstation till stor del är beroende av möjligheten att skjuta signalsökande robotar. Både för JAS39 och en UCAV är ett emitterlokaliseringssystem en viktig komponent för att kunna lokalisera en radarstation. För attklara detta från en plattform krävs Doppler Difference Of Arrival (DDOA).

    Analysing Chinese Civil-Military Relations: A bottom-Up Approach2018In: China Quarterly, ISSN 0305-7410, E-ISSN 1468-2648, Vol. 234, p. 377-398Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines Chinese civil-military relations using a bottom-up analytical approach and hitherto untapped sources, including interviews with military personnel in active service. It argues that traditional approaches to political control, which generally interpret the changing political-military relationship through military professionalism and institutional autonomy, miss out on important aspects and may generate erroneous conclusions. Here, focus is instead on the professional autonomy of the Chinese officer corps. Through an empirical study of the organization of military work at two of China’s top military education institutes, the article illustrates how professional autonomy and direct political control varies, both between hierarchical levels and issue areas. This highlights the multidimensionality of both control and professional manoeuvrability and underlines the fruitfulness of including an intra-organizational perspective in order to reach better informed conclusions about political control and civil-military relations in today’s China.

    Analysis of the decision making process leading to appendectomy: A grounded theory study2004In: Scandinavian Journal of Psychology, ISSN 0036-5564, E-ISSN 1467-9450, Vol. 45, no 5, p. 449-454Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim was to develop a theoretical understanding of the decision-making process leading to appendectomy. A qualitative interview study was performed in the grounded theory tradition using the constant comparative method to analyze data. The study setting was one county hospital and two local hospitals in Sweden, where 11 surgeons and 15 surgical nurses were interviewed. A model was developed which suggests that surgeons’ decision making regarding appendectomy is formed by the interplay between their medical assessment of the patient's condition and a set of contextual characteristics. The latter consist of three interacting factors: (1) organizational conditions, (2) the professional actors’ individual characteristics and interaction, and (3) the personal characteristics of the patient and his or her family or relatives. In case the outcome of medical assessment is ambiguous, the risk evaluation and final decision will be influenced by an interaction of the contextual characteristics. It was concluded that, compared to existing, rational models of decision making, the model presented identified potentially important contextual characteristics and an outline on when they come into play.

    Analysis of Unmanned Ground Vehicles systems.2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 12 credits / 18 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    With the increasing quantity of soldier equipment in some cases weighing up to 50kg per soldier, a need to decrease the workload of the soldier emerges. There are several conventional solutions in the working, amongst them there are unmanned ground vehicles. But pack animals has for a long time played a major role in war, as modes of transportation, logistics and battle. This study will compare two UGV:s the LS3 and the TAROS V2 to the horse. The purpose is to compare old technology to new to a relatively new problem of high equipment weight.The method used to compare is a military technical system analysis, with the use of a multi-criteria and SWOT analysis. The result of the comparison is that the one of the UGV:s have better mobility and endurance that are up to date with today’s standards.
