    Archer i ökenterräng: En jämförelse med Brittisk bandhaubits M109 i Kuwaitkriget2012Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I modern tid har flertalet konflikter utspelat sig i ökenterräng och den nya svenska försvarspolitiken utesluter inte ett svenskt deltagande i en framtida ökenkonflikt. Samtidigt så inför den svenska försvarsmakten det moderna artillerisystemet Archer. Det här arbetet undersöker hur Archer kan hantera de taktiska krav och den terränginverkan som öken skapar. Syftet med arbetet är att undersöka huruvida Archersystemet är lämpligt för insats i öken mot en konventionell motståndare.

    En jämförande metod har använts i arbetet där Archers förmåga har ställts mot bandhaubitsen M109A2 i tre fallstudier från Kuwaitkriget. Baileys teori om artilleri i öknen har använts för att fastställa terränginverkan. Linds respektive Falkenhayns teorier om eldunderstöd har använts för att definiera de taktiska situationernas krav.

    Resultatet visar att Archer har en bättre förmåga än M109A2 att leva upp till ökenkrigets taktiska krav. Dock visade sig Archer vara mer känslig för terränginverkan. Författaren drar därför slutsatsen att Archer är en relativt duglig ökenpjäs, men att moderna, bandgående pjäser utgör ett bättre alternativ.

    Ardenneroffensiven 1944 i speglingen av NATO:s planeringsprocess2002Student paper otherStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay analyses the German planning of the attack in the Ardennes usingthe NATO guidelines operational planning as help. Firstly the planning processand its interaction with military theory is described. Then the German planningof the Ardennes offensive is analysed by using the different steps of theplanning process in purpose to find differences and similarities. Finally adiscussion is being brought up about the planning process as an instrument foranalyses. The result of the analysis shows that the German planning in generalhas had the same contents as the NATO planning process. An importantdifference in the German planning have been the absence of a clear connectionto the military theory and also that the operation partly was planned on thewrong level. The NATO planning process has by its military theory connectiona timeless shape that makes it work as an instrument for analyses of historicaloperations.

    Are Quantity-Distances Narrowing in?2010In: Department of Defense Explosives Safety Board Seminar (34th) held in Portland, Oregon on 13-15 July 2010, Portland: Department of Defense Explosives Safety Board , 2010Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Quantity-Distance (QD) is an established method used among other things for safety related to ammunition storage. The beauty of the QD-method is obvious - the simplicity - a simple solution to a complicated problem.

    As often is the case, the simple solution may be too simple for some applications. This makes a need to question the QD-method - if, when and how to use it.

    QD methods are generally appreciated by authorities who have to apply it and they consider it easy to understand (Acceptable - Not acceptable and nothing in between). Technical people who are involved in the ammunition safety process are well aware of the deficiencies associated with it. These deficiencies have led to alternate ways to be used in safety regulations e.g. methods based upon risk analysis.

    Increased costs for land and military operational requirements make it necessary both to apply alternate methods to ensure adequate safety and to question the criteria behind the QD: s and how they are used for different situations.

    The paper describes the background to and the development of some current regulations for the storage of ammunition. Comparisons are made of different criteria used and how these criteria influence on QD: s and Field Distances for the Military Operational Theater.

    The paper gives special emphasis on work done within the NATO AC/326 Operational Safety Group and efforts made to reduce Field Distances in the interest of Operational Readiness.

    Argentinas roll inför kriget om Falklandsöarna 1982: en vild chanstagning eller en kalkylerad risk?2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta arbete syftar till att teoriprövande analysera och jämföra två av Graham Allisons teoretiska perspektiv avseende drivkrafterna bakom den argentinska militärjuntans agerande och beslut inför kriget om Falklandsöarna 1982. Den studerade tidsperioden avser åren 1976-1982. För att identifiera militärjuntans drivkrafter har Allisons teorier om förklaringsmodeller använts. I arbetet förekommer två förklaringsmodeller; det rationella aktörsperspektivet samt det interna maktkampsperspektivet. Dessa perspektiv innehåller av Allison konstruerade konceptuella faktorer och frågeställningar som för arbetets syfte har operationaliserats. De två perspektiven har därefter använts som ett analytiskt verktyg för att systematiserat bearbeta det empiriska underlaget i syfte att klarlägga vilken av modellerna som har den tydligaste förklaringskraften.

    Undersökningens resultat visar att det interna maktkampsperspektivet har den tydligaste förklaringskraften till militärjuntans agerande och beslut. Det signifikativa för militärjuntan var att den präglades av individuella målsättningar och flertalet konflikter, där den enskilda individens agenda fick företräde framför organisationens. Däremot kan perspektivet inte återge alla nyanser i en aktörs drivkrafter. Allisons modeller lämpar sig väl för att försöka förklara ett skeende som redan inträffat, men svårigheter uppstår troligtvis vid ett framåtblickande och vid en generalisering av andra fall.

    Argentinean flood management and the logic of omission: The case of Santa Fe City2013In: Stockholm Review of Latin American Studies, ISSN 1654-0204, E-ISSN 1654-0204, no 9, p. 69-81Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When the disastrous flood, generally referred to as “la Inundación”,occurred in Santa Fe City in 2003, it seemed like a bolt from the blue. Yet, it was far from the first flood to strike the city. Situated between two major rivers, flooding is part of the city’s history since its foundation. The lack of preparedness raises questions about the relation between past experience and future action in matters of disaster management. This article analyses the processes of remembering and forgetting as mediators of this relation. By focusing ethnographically on how these entwined processes playout within the Santa fesinian bureaucracy, following a logic of omission, it is argued that this logic contribute to the normalization of disaster instead of future prevention.

    Argument för Fältflygarsystemets införande: är dessa giltiga för att introducera ett tvåbefälssystem för flygvapnets piloter idag?2010Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In 1946, the Swedish Air Force (SwAF) introduced a new position open for pilot applicants. These pilots were trained and hired as non-commissioned officers and served in during a limited period of time. Influenced by the British RAF system with short service personnel, this system was in use until 1982. That year, it was decided that the Swedish Armed Forces would consist only of commissioned officers. However, in 2008, the non-commissioned officers were re-introduced into service. Today, the officers of the Armed Forces serve either as non-commissioned officers (“specialistofficerare) or commissioned officers (“officerare”). Aspirants who are applying to figher pilot training within the SwAF go through a three-year-long academic education in order to become commissioned officers. This essay aims to elucidate the key arguments used to introduce the system of non-commissioned fighter pilot officers and to test the validity of these arguments for applying the “new” system of officer ranks/other. The essay investigates the evolution, shaping, implementation and termination of the Fältflygare-system. It also compares 1946 and 2010 on three different aspects: the air force’s economic situation and tasks as well as the security policy-situation of the country. Also, a comparison of how officers are organised is made, between the SwAF and the air force of five other countries. The end of the essay consists of a discussion of the results. The result of the essay shows that none of the previous arguments are valid for implementing a system of non-commissioned fighter pilot officers for the SwAF pilots today. The main reasons for this are major differences in the tasks given to the armed forces and the differences of the security policy-situation. The main purpose of the Fältflygare-system, to recruit and train a large quantity of pilots for an air force that was being developed, does not reflect the situation today. Furthermore, the armed forces and air force today must be ready to solve a wider range of tasks today than before, particularly when it comes to peace keeping and peace enforcement missions. The older system trained for a more specific task - defending the Swedish country’s borders in case of a war between NATO and the Warsaw Pact.

    Arkitektur för stöd av ledning inom det flexibla insatsförsvaret2003Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish Armed Forces plan to develop technical solutions to the futurecommand and control (C2) system, according to the Swedish Governmentsguiding principles. This thesis deals with a common technological architecturein the C4ISR structure and what kind of support the system will give thecommanders according to their decision cycle.First of all, the Network-Based Defence is introduced in the thesis and thewriter describes what NBF are thought to be as a method in the upcomingflexible defence. Besides that the thesis are studying what C2 are intended to befor the Swedish Armed Forces, four important elements are studied inside thecommand area and they are: organization, methods, personnel and technology.Finally the decision-making process is studied, as the human influence is acentral factor inside the C2 system.The thesis concludes that it is possible to evolve the decision-making process ifa high technology communication network supports the C2 systems. The thesisalso concludes that there is a strong need to open up the organisation structureand hierarchy and to permit an information stream and to integrate the peoplebetween different functions.

    Arktis i skuggan av Ukraina: en studie om den säkerhetspolitiska utvecklingen i Arktis ur ett svensk perspektiv2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Arctic is today an area of opportunities when it comes to science, new international trade routes and exploration of natural resources among other things. It is also an area of potential conflict about who has the right to the natural resources. All the littoral states in the area are backing up their sovereignty claims with increasing military presence. Russia stands out as the country with the most ambitious arctic policy. In the light of the Ukraine conflict and the resulting worsening international relations between Russia and the west, the purpose of this study is to contribute to the situational awareness when it comes to how the security situation in the Arctic is developing. Since Sweden is an Arctic state, the development in the Arctic will have an impact on Swedish security policy and the Swedish defence forces. The study focuses on the Swedish public debate and aims to identify trends of development within military, economic and political security. The main conclusion is that the security situation in the Arctic, within the limits of this study, is moving towards securitizing and increased risk of conflict. This is to some degree linked to the events in Ukraine because of the economic sanctions that USA and the EU put on Russia, and also because Russian actions in the Ukraine have increased the western countries perception of Russia as a military threat. The study also shows an increasing connection between development in the Arctic and other parts of the world.

    Arms Acquisition: Why is it So Difficult?2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There are several examples of failed arms acquisition programs, where costs have been underestimated, and unproven technology misunderstood.

    Arms acquisition programs seem to suffer from particular difficulties, judging from the results obtained. This is not only a U.S., and to some extent U.K., phenomenon, although the debate is by far most active in those two nations. The problems express themselves as cost overruns, delayed deliveries, and fundamental, sometimes insoluble, technical challenges. The term “acquisition” is here used for the complete life cycle process of a system, covering concept generation, design phase, prototypes, volume production, operational use, various upgrades, and disposal. The problems are typically, but not always, encountered in the design phase.

    Is military acquisition inherently more difficult than similar programs in non-military business areas? The fact that these programs are usually paid for by public money, that large sums of money are involved, and that programs often are not competed, all contribute to making these programs much more prone to extensive media coverage, in particular concerning any failures, compared to similar big-money, high-tech programs in the private sector.

    In this paper we will examine the technologies involved and their sometimes extraordinary pace of development, some inherent difficulties with big military programs, the fundamental difficulties with cross-border collaboration and the funding challenges in times of austerity, and we will propose some remedies.2We believe that the conclusions of this paper are relevant e.g. for the ongoing negotiations for Sweden-Brazil military cooperation and arms acquisition.

    Armén vs Flygvapnet: Uppföljning och hantering av materiella brister inom den tekniska tjänsten2010Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Technical Service is one of the cornerstones that make the Swedish armed force operational. Handle and manage failure within technical materials are, among other tasks, something that technical service needs to deal with. The aim with this paper is to examine two different systems that handle the follow-up of different failures, one system from the army and one system from the airforce. Based on the aim, the systems will be compared and discussed through different points of view, focusing on the advantage and disadvantage. Looking at the background description of the systems, it shows that ARGUS and DA go two different tracks when they do a follow up. ARGUS focus on the follow up of the material, while DA focuses on the follow up in an individual aspect. Further in the background, it shows that, the same procedure isused in the report process, a four-step-model. The background is followed up by an analysis of two different cases where the follow up systems is the main point and after that, a discussion around the result was made. During the discussion, the writer of this paper made up some conclusions, and those are as follows. In the beginning, the ARGUS system was complicated to use. The fact that you needed to type in the report twice in two different kinds of systems made it complicated to use. However, this problem, were fixed due the integration of the system within another system. In the DA system, everyone that uses this system needs to be loyal against the system, due the lack of connection between report and report writer. As a summary of the whole paper, the writer recommends a system that has both of these parts, in other words, both individual follow up and materials follow up, might make the system more effective.

    Abstract [en]

    Background: The transformation of the Swedish Armed Forces (SAF) from the Cold War conceptto today’s mission-oriented SAF with units designated for international operations. This,combined with Swedish political ambition to increase SAF commitments to operations abroad,affects the demands placed on the physical capacity of Swedish armyofficers.Purpose: To examine Swedish armyofficer ability to fulfill Nordic Battle Group physicalrequirements.Theory: A competence model and theories related to it have been utilised.Method: An abductive method has been applied and empirical results have been gained fromquestionnaires and interviews.Main result: A minority of armyofficers aren’t aware of the new physical requirements of thetransformed Armed Forces. However, most armyofficers’ physical capacity corresponds to therequirements of the new mission-oriented SAF. Nevertheless, the study concludes that there isroom for improvement concerning Swedish armyofficers’ physical capacity.

    Artificiella neurala nät för datorseende hos en luftmålsrobot2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study is aimed at increasing the knowledge to those concerned within the Armed Forces by providing information on the possibilities of modern artificial intelligence (AI).

    Motivation comes from observations of civilian technology on the use of AI in the field of Computer Vision showing performance equaling the level of the human vision when using the technology of Deep Learning of Artificial Neural Nets. In air-combat aircraft the pilot´s vision is used for recognizing the aircraft that is about to be shot down. For example when utilizing helmet mounted displays, the seeker of an air-target-missile is directed upon the aircraft on which the pilot´s eyes are looking. However when air-target-missiles are utilized beyond visual range the pilot´s vision cannot help in directing the seeker on a specific target. Therefore computer vision within an air-target-missile is studied.

    The results of the study support that the technology of neural networks may be used in an air-target-missile and that computer vision provided by this technology can do the job of recognizing a combat aircraft.

    Artilleri - i framtidens armé eller på armémuseum?: har artilleri någon roll att fylla i den svenska försvarsmakten 2010-2020?2001Student paper otherStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Based on the extensive changes which the Armed Forces are undergoing within the framework of a RMA-concept (Revolution in Military Affairs), there are reasons to examine what systems are needed to meet future demands. The aim of this thesis is to clarify if tube- or rocket artillery brings any unique abilities to the battlefield of tomorrow. Thus justifying upgrading existing, and/or procuring new equipment. In order to evaluate if artillery has any unique system abilities, the demands in terms of fire support in the timeframe 2010 -2020 are described. After this, the capabilities of artillery- as well as other potential fire support systems are defined. The fire support demands are based on an analysis of two main sources. Initially the most important document concerning the Armed Forces’ aims, objectives and evolution, FMI 2020, is analysed. After that, demands based on the principles of maneuver warfare are listed. The capabilities of systems are founded on modern artillery systems, JAS-39 in the ground attack role together with up to date attack helicopters and surface to surface missiles. For each type of system, operational conclusions are drawn, and presented accompanied by a predicted system evolvement within the specified timeframe. The systems abilities are based upon independent sources, or such connected to the Armed Forces. By evaluating to what extent each of the fire support platforms has the ability to meet the various demands, it is possible to ascertain if artillery is in any way unique. It is this way shown that artillery is irreplaceable by any of the other systems in two aspects. They are both connected to availability. The two areas are – the ability to engage short dwell targets, and the ability to perform direct support tasks to maneuver units

    Artilleri i internationella insatser2010Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Artillery is used daily in Afghanistan as part of support to maneuver units through force protection and show of force. Sweden has introduced the new artillery system Archer. Archer has not yet been tested internationally. This creates a need for the collection and analysis of experiences from international operations with artillery units. The main purpose of this study is to compare the new Swedish howitzer Archer with howitzers used by other countries in Afghanistan to be able to draw conclusions that determines Archers functionality in an international context. The main conclusion is that the Archer system is well suited for an operation in Afghanistan. Archer is able to solve many of the tasks that American artillery units have been solving in Afghanistan. Archer's main advantages are the armored crew compartment, the long range with accurate modern grenades and the ability to autonomously conduct fire missions. Two main weaknesses have been identified with Archer. Archer needs illuminating grenades in order to implement the show of force. The opportunity for strategic air transport of Archer is limiting and the only option at present is to borrow air transport resources from other nations.

    Artilleri i nationell konflikt: En studie om finländskt principfokus i det Finska vinterkriget och en jämförelse med svenska artillerireglementet2012Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 12 credits / 18 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den svenska något begränsade artilleri-förmågan skall kunna verka effektivt i alla konfliktnivåer och detta skapar behov av erfarenhetsinhämtning av tidigare konflikter. Finska vinterkriget har i denna uppsats behandlats för att utvärdera en konflikt av nationell karaktär liknande den svenska försvarsmakten skulle kunna ställas inför.

    Undersökningen behandlade två områden; ”Mannerheim-linjen” och ”Norr om Ladoga” på grund av dess olika karaktär och på så sätt behov av finsk taktikanpassning. Analysen genom kvalitativ litteraturstudie genomfördes med utgångspunkt i teorin krigföringens principer. Analysen skulle sedan mynna ut i ett antal principer som verkade framgångsfrämjande för artilleriets användande. En jämförelse gjordes senare mellan resultatet av studien och svenska artilleriets tänkta principfokus idag.

    Resultatet av undersökningen visar att principerna måste vägas mot varandra för att vara framgångsfrämjande, dock framträdde principer som stridsekonomi, samordning, mål och målsättningar samt god anda som viktiga dels som enskilda principer men även för att kunna möjliggöra andra principers uppfyllande.

    Artilleribataljonen och vapenanskaffning: taktiskt eller organisatoriskt rationellt?2010Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish armed force has changed from defending the country from invasions to a military force that can be used as a military intervention at different places around the world. This change has meant that some organizations has been discontinued and reorganized. The artillery is one of the branches of the fighting services who have gone from several regiments to only one. The artillery battalion is recognized as a unit that has a long range and powerful impact. With 15,5 guns they support the maneuver units. Today the artillery battalion have 8cm mortars as secondary armament, a weapon that has bad range compared to 15,5 guns and a weapon that can’t penetrate armored targets and has bad accuracy. This essay is a study about why the artillery battalion has acquired 8 cm mortars. Is it because of tactical rational reasons or is it because of organizational rational reasons? The essay takes stand from two hypotheses that explain why the artillery battalion has acquired 8 cm mortars. The study indicates that the artillery battalion increases their assignments by acquiring 8 cm mortars. This enables the battalion theoretical possibilities to compete for places in missions or places in the Nordic battlegroup. The study also analyses the artillery battalion’s tasks, tasks that the organization should manage. The artillery battalion has, according to the result, not the resources to solve all the assignments without the 8 cm mortars. Therefore it is tactical rationally to acquire 8 cm mortars assecondary armament.

    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen undersöker Marinens uppbyggnad och omstrukturering i och med Försvarsbeslut 58.Marinen gick från en flotta uppbyggd kring två stridsgrupper med en kryssare som ledare, stödfartygvar jagare och motortorpedbåtar i formationen till att efter beslutet gå mot ett kustförsvar medtorpedbåtar och kustartilleri.Uppsatsen undersöker huruvida möjlighet fanns att bedriva Fleet-in-Being innan Försvarsbeslut 58och efter genomförandet. För att kunna göra detta analyseras Fleet in Being främst utefter två storateoretiker, Alfred Thayer Mahan och Sir Julian Corbett, för att urskilja om det finns ett visst agerandeeller punkter som måste uppfyllas för att Fleet-in-Being ska vara applicerbart.Analysen av Försvarsbeslutet visade att Flygvapnet till stor del skulle ta över försvaret av Östersjönutifrån delkonceptet som sammanfaller Fleet-in-Being, bland annat att slå mot försörjningslinjer. Manräknade med att flygplanens förluster skulle fortskrida så hastigt att man inte kan upprätthålla detaktiva långtgående hot som Fleet-in-Being kräver.Resultaten som uppsatsen kommit fram till visade på att Marinen hade god förmåga till Fleet-in-Beinginnan Försvarsbeslut 58 genomfördes. Marinen hade till viss del Fleet-in-Being även eftergenomförandet med de jagardivisioner som sattes samman. Att Flygvapnet var tänkt att på egen handagera mot ett överskeppningsföretag baserades på bedömningar och antaganden som gav enmissvisande bild av dess förmåga.

    Abstract [en]

    Artillery Tactics Codification in two eras, consequences? - The Swedish Artillery is in the process of instituting a new howitzer system to the artillery battalion. Not only is the new howitzer system being introduced, but also a new artillery regulation. The regulation currently used is a preview release called Förhandsutgåva Artillerireglemente Artilleribataljon 2012. The aim of this work is to analyze how the essential abilities demonstrated in the current regulations compare with its forerunner Artillerireglemente Artilleribataljon 1985. How are the basic abilities depicted in the regulations and do the tactics in relation to the abilities differ between the current and the old regulation? Through a qualitative analysis of the regulations with the basic text from the 1985-years edition, selected parts are to be compared and analyzed. Thereafter, tactical implications of differences between the regulations are discussed. The results points to obvious differences in how clearly the essential abilities are presented in the regulations. Causes for these differences as well as the overall design of the regulations are argued in the discussion.

    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the possibility of using computer-based simulators and war games as a part of the ballistics and artillery courses offered to officers and cadets at the Swedish Defence University. The idea is to enhance the learning process by allowing the students to experiment with physically justified exterior-ballistics models and demonstrate how artillery can be used in combat to achieve military objectives. The pedagogical effect of two types of exercises is investigated: one focusing on the physics of exterior ballistics and the other being a war game where artillery warfare can be exercised. The students are shown how different forces and moments affect the trajectory of a shell in-flight and what possibilities and limitations different artillery systems offer. In the war game, the students get to practice command and control in a tactical scenario against an intelligent opponent, an opponent in the form of another student. The main result of the study consists of a self-report survey and lessons learned by the author. The survey revealed that both the officers and the cadets thought that this type of interactive learning was a good compliment to more traditional education and that they perceived that their understanding of exterior ballistics and artillery tactics was enhanced by working in the simulator. This initial successful outcome gives reason to further explore how other learning objectives can be achieved by expanding the scenarios and focusing on other factors, such as logistics or deployment of artillery locating radar. Furthermore, the war game was limited to a fix situation, scenarios with multiple objectives several ways of completing those objectives should be considered to better reflect the complex environment encountered in ground warfare.

    Arvet eller framtiden?: en förändring av den svenska operativa underrättelsebedömandemetodiken2001Student paper otherStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The background that gave rise to this paper is the change in the world around us during the last decade and Sweden’s ever increasing involvement internationally by sending units and officers to multi-national staffs. This paper discusses how the Swedish Method of Operational Intelligence Assessment will change in comparison to the Joint Intelligence Preparation of the Battlespace of the US (JIPB).The paper begins with the hypothesis that the JIPB is more detailed and penetrates deeper into more areas than the Swedish equivalent. The paper continues with a description of the two models. In this connection, the American model is described fairly exhaustively. After this part, the two models are analysed and compared with the purpose of answering the overall question of whether or not the Swedish Method of Operational Intelligence Assessment should be retained, changed or if a transition to the JIPB should take place. The result indicates that a change to the American model will occur, though with certain additions from the Swedish equivalent. Finally, a suggestion is made for the continued development within the area of Operational Intelligence Assessment at an operational level.

    Asambleas socioambientales en la Argentina: Activismo como Agenciamiento2017In: Etnografías Contemporáneas, ISSN 2451-8050, Vol. 3, no 4, p. 200-224Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [es]

    En la Argentina del siglo XXI, la asamblea se ha convertido en una figura de movilización política y social. Las asambleas argentinas muestran rasgos transnacionales de acción colectiva contemporánea, pero también se caracterizan por discursos y prácticas relacionadas con los procesos políticos particulares de la Argentina y Latinoamérica. En este artículo se examina la asamblea argentina como un agenciamiento y se analiza cuáles son los elementos heterogéneos que se relacionan en y durante las asambleas. El análisis se basa en diferentes investigaciones etnográficas recientes, a saber, en la anti-minera Asamblea El Algarrobo en Andalgalá, en la Unión de Asambleas Ciudadanas y en la Asamblea Permanente por los Afectados de la Inundación en la Ciudad de Santa Fe.

    Asault rifles: Comparison, analysis and future trends2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: There is a large worldwide market for assault rifles. Many armed forces need new weapons when their old cold war equipment starts to break down. Throughout the world today, the development of new variants of assault rifles continues and the defence industries are doing business across the globe. Customers demand low prices and high quality.

    Objective: To investigate assault rifles that are currently being used around the world, how they evolved and which factors are important in the development of a future assault rifle, and to compare two widely used assault rifles to explore the differences and determine which one is better.

    Methods: A qualitative study of literature combined with a multi-target analysis of two assault rifles from a given scenario in an urban area.

    Results: Small arms have been the soldier's main weaponry for hundreds of years, and will continue to be so for many years to come. Development of the future assault rifle will be based on such factors as shooting distance, size of magazine and weight. The AK5C rifle was ranked number one ahead of the G36E rifle in the comparison as it was smaller and therefore easier to use in confined spaces.

    Conclusion: Many current rifles are similar in performance and size. Development of the future rifle will not only depend on the rifle itself, but also on the accessories, including ammunition, and the possibilities for customization.

    ASEAN, Sydkinesiska Havet och Säkerhetsgemenskap: En studie om säkerhetsintegrering inom ASEAN2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis has attempted to answer why a stronger response isn’t seen from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in the South China Sea when two of its member states are vocal claimants of islands in the sea. According to the theory of security communities created by Karl Deutsch, members of a security community should have the same perception of external threats and deal with threats against another member of the community as a threat to their own state and well-being. This is not the response we have seen from ASEAN, but instead a divided ASEAN has tried to organize various forums to create dialogue with China on implementing the 2002 Declaration of the code of conduct in the South China Sea (DOC) as well as creating a binding version of a Code of Conduct (COC). This weak and divided response to China's expansive claims in the South China Sea could be due to weak security integration within the organization.

    Through discourse analysis of statements by all ASEAN member states concerning the South China Sea I conclude that there has been an increased level of security integration within ASEAN, where member states now have started to define threats and values ​​equally. Still there exists a considerable wedge in the view of China as a threat, which stands in the way of full security integration and in turn this stands in the way for ASEAN to become a fully mature security community.

    Aspergers syndrom i Försvarsmakten?: En studie om hur diskrimineringslagen implementerats i antagningsprocessen till grundläggande militär utbildning2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den första januari 2009 infördes en ny gemensam diskrimineringslag som gäller för flera svenska samhällsområden. Lagen syftar bland annat till att personer med en funktionsnedsättning har rätt att bli bedömda utifrån sina egenskaper och förmågor. När jag fick höra att personer med Aspergers syndrom har svårt att antas till grundläggande militär utbildning blev jag intresserad av att undersöka detta närmare. I denna uppsats undersöker jag Försvarsmaktens antagningsprocess och rekryttest, diskrimineringslagen och olika styrdokument från Försvarsmakten sett utifrån ett perspektiv hos en person med Aspergers syndrom. Min slutsats blir att personer med Aspergers syndrom förefaller bli diskriminerade i Försvarsmaktens antagningsprocess. Dessa personer har enligt Försvarsmaktens styrande dokument möjligheter att söka och antas till grundläggande militär utbildning, men på grund av utformningen av rekryttestet ges dessa personer inte möjlighet att ta sig vidare i processen. Deras funktionsnedsättning blir ett hinder i antagningsprocessen.

    Assessing the quality of Shared Priorities in teams using content analysis in a microworld experiment2017In: Theoretical Issues in Ergonomics Science, ISSN 1463-922X, E-ISSN 1464-536X, Vol. 18, no 2, p. 128-146Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective, easy to use, and easy to comprehend assessment methods for measuring shared understanding in teams are hard to find. This paper describes an experiment where a measure called Shared Priorities, which is based on ranking of self-generated strategic items, is assessed. Trained teams were compared to non-trained teams in a dynamic problem-solving task. The maturity of the participating teams was also assessed using a content analysis measure. The Shared Priorities measure was used alongside other well-documented measures of team awareness based on self-rating. Results show that the Shared Priorities measure correlates with task performance and could also distinguish between trained and non-trained teams. However, the Shared Priorities measure did not correlate with the other team measures (cf. CARS – Crew Awareness Rating Scale – and DATMA – Distributed Assessment of Team Mutual Awareness), suggesting that it captures a different quality of teamwork than the self-rating measures. Further, the Shared Priorities measure was found to be easily administered.

    Assessment of Aircraft Radar Cross-Section for Detection Analysis2016Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Hiding from and surprising an opponent are tactics that have been used in warfare throughout history. They were features that aircraft originally possessed when they were first used in military operations. However, development of military technology is an endless struggle between advances in technology and counter technology. During World War II this struggle led to the development of a new technology called radar, which was designed to detect sea vessels and aircraft at a distance and deny them the element of surprise. This laid the foundation for modern air defenses and simultaneously created a need for aircraft to penetrate such defenses. Central to the tactics and technological development that followed from the deployment of radar on the modern battlefield is the radar cross-section (RCS) of aircraft, which dictates the range at which aircraft can be detected by radar. In this thesis some aspects of the RCS of aircraft in radar detection are investigated. A combination of experimental measurement of aircraft and digital model development of the RCS of aircraft has been used.

    From flight experiments, the uncertainty in aspect angle to a threat sensor, due to aircraft dynamics, is quantified for various aircraft. In addition, the RCS fluctuation behavior of a military jet trainer is investigated by dynamic in-flight measurement. The monostatic and bistatic RCS of an F-117 are modeled and findings show that spline interpolation provides superior accuracy when interpolating the RCS data. Smooth and conservative RCS models are suggested and a new RCS sampling scheme is presented. A model based on experimental data is suggested for determining the range of aspect angles that an aircraft is likely to orient towards a threat sensor, and experimental RCS data is compared to the classical Swerling radar target models.

    Possible consequences for military operations and the design of military systems are discussed and considerations for modeling the interaction between air defenses and aircraft penetrating those defenses are given.  

    This thesis should be of interest to military actors and the defense industry, since the analyses of the ability to detect aircraft using radar are important for military operations and their planning.
