    Militär nytta med mobiltelefoni och Radio180: En systemanalys av sambandssystem2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The military communication system RA180 is aging while mobile telephony is evolving rapidly. These systems differ from each other in many aspects, but the overall skill in using a mobile phone offers benefits for military communication. Previous research has shown that there are some flaws in mobile telephony, but how these deficiencies relate to a communication system that is already in use by the Armed Forces have not been studied yet.

    This essay aims to investigate whether there is any military utility of using mobile telephony for the communication instead of RA180. A systems analysis, where the systems are compared and evaluated, will be implemented for this purpose. The essay reveals several opportunities available when mobile telephony is used as communication systems and one of the main potential is that the system has a higher availability due to the existing infrastructure. Mobile telephony has a lower military utility than RA180 in a specific scenario, but for several of the reasons that resulted in a lower military utility there are solutions. Encryption is one of these and there are options that would improve security significantly in mobile telephony.

    Sensorer i brownout2013Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    When a helicopter is in brownout the crew looses references to the world outside which could decrease the spatial awareness. If the crew does not know the accurate position of the helicopter it can lead to damage on both equipment and crew when landing. This report examined, on a general level, how sensors within the electromagnetic spectrum could contribute with information to the spatial awareness. The report found that the sensors need to be adaptable due to the widely varying characteristics of the dustcloud. The sensors were able to generate an image of the landingsite prior to brownout. Radar was best suited to updating the image when brownout had occurred, whereas the electro-optical sensors are highly attenuated by the dust cloud. However, the electro-optical sensors generated an image of the environment corresponding to the eye's interpretation of the same surrounding, something that a radar has greater difficulty with accomplishing.

    XM982 Excalibur: användbar i krig och konflikter?2009Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats behandlar precisionsgranaten XM982 Excalibur. Syftet med arbetet var att öka kunskapen inom Försvarsmakten avseende Excalibur inför ett nyttjande av granaten i krig och konflikter.

    Syftet var också att definiera faktorer som är viktiga att tänka på vid nyttjandet av Excalibur i krig och konflikter.

    Frågeställning jag ställde upp för detta arbete är: Hur kan XM982 Excalibur användas i krig och konflikter?

    För att kunna svara på frågeställningen så besvarades tre olika delfrågor.

    De tre delfrågorna är:

    • Vilka tekniska och taktiska faktorer framkommer genom information från industrin?
    • Vilka tekniska och taktiska faktorer framkommer genom information från Försvarsmakten?
    • Vilka faktorer framkommer genom information från nyttjandet av Excalibur av USA i Irak?  
    • Metoden som användes var litteraturstudier samt intervjuer av personer som arbetat med utveckling av granaten. Varje frågeställning avslutas med en diskussion där de olika faktorerna som framkommit diskuteras. Efter att ha diskuterat de tre olika frågorna avslutas arbetet med en sammanfattande diskussion.

    I resultaten från avhandlingen framkom att Excalibur är en väldigt teknisk artillerigranat med mycket bra egenskaper för att kunna underlätta för markförbanden, främst i strid i urban terräng.

    High Power Microwave - fremtidens luftvern/luftforsvar?2004Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    High Power Microwave-weapons (HPM-weapons) represent a future weapons system with the ability toneutralize and destroy enemy capabilities, though without a direct loss of lives. Therefore, furtherstudies of HPM-weapons and their capacities could be relevant and interesting to The Swedish ArmedForces.The purpose of this research paper is to investigate whether or not HPM-weapons have a future in theSwedish Defence Forces. The aim is to develop a theoretical and technical foundation in order toinvestigate HPM-weapons in a developed scenario. The research paper has a strong connection to thedevelopment and implementation of the Swedish Network Based Defence (NBF) programme. Theconducted analysis is based on three fundamental capabilities; affect, protect, and command and control(C2). The research paper investigates the foundation of development and implementation of HPMweaponsin the Air Defense (AD) role in support of army units.The main conclusions indicate that there are strong arguments to move forward the development andimplementation of HPM-weapons in the Swedish Armed Forces. As both an offensive and a defensivecapability, HPM-weapons could be essential in the Swedish Network Based Defense programme. At thesame time, technological and physical limitations do exist, and it is therefore not likely that HPMweaponsalone can replace and take over the role of conventional AD-systems of today. The optimalsolution seems to consist of a mix of HPM-weapons and conventional AD-systems (cannon/rocket).Nevertheless, it is important that future weapons systems are fully integrated in the Network BasedDefense concept, and can counter a wide threat spectrum.

    Logistics in enemy territory2014Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The background of this study comes from the lack of documentation and knowledge about logistics in units, which has the main focus on combat or reconnaissance. The aims of the thesis is to determine and compare the different methods used to provide logistical support to units operating in enemy territory by Sweden and the Czech Republic in todays convention and asymmetric wars.Method of gathering information is through qualitative interviews using a semi-structured interview technique with both Swedish and Czech officers. The topics of the interviews are defined beforehand on an interview template and are based on the Swedish basic view of logistics. The three logistical branches that are covered are; service, movement and healthcare support. The result shows that Sweden and the Czech Republic have largely the same methods in all three branches. Sweden has one method in both service and healthcare support, which the Czech Republic does not have. For service support the method is a “forward operating place” which is similar to a forward operating base but only smaller and within the enemies territory. With healthcare support Sweden has small competent medicalgroups further out in enemy territory.The conclusion is that although Sweden and the Czech Republic have mostly the same logistical methods in supporting units in enemy territory they sometimes use them differently. The Swedish armed forces have a more evolved system for logistical support in enemy territory, which is a consequence of the cold war and the Swedish decision of not joining NATO, according to the author.

    Stridsfordon 90: Hur utvecklingen har inverkat på dess förmåga2013Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    As tasks have changed for units the equipment may need to be modified to cope with the new requirements. The changes made to the equipment affect its abilities in different directions and extent. In this paper, the development of strf 90 from 9040A to 9040C has been examined and then conclusions have been made about how the vehicles abilities have been affected. The paper shows that the development has increased the ability primarily in effect where aiming system and armament was upgraded and protection where the vehicle has been enhanced with among other things additional protection outside. This has also affected the mobility and durability in a negative direction, mainly because of the increased weight and restrictions on freedom of movement and usability.

    Den smarta kartan: En teoretisk diskussion om geografiskt informationssystem i ledningssystem2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The ongoing development of information systems and the increased availability of information through these systems increase the demands on the military personnel to handle this large amount of information. Information on participants in a battle area and the terrain actors find themselves is a prerequisite to conduct military operations. As a result of all this increased informa-tion the information systems needs to developed to provide a better basis for deci-sions. The purpose of this paper is to examine which military benefit could be achieved with a geographic information system (GIS) for decision makers in a military opera-tion. In addition, the paper will investigate how a GIS should be designed to support staff with decision making. The survey is done by both comparative literature and description of theories and methods. The results indicate that GIS should be able to contribute to the military benefit to enable information superiority over an adversary. Furthermore, the results show that the correct design of GIS makes it easier for the user but it still requires training to use GIS in full.

    Using AI and games for decision support in command and control2007In: Decision Support Systems, ISSN 0167-9236, E-ISSN 1873-5797, Vol. 43, no 4, p. 1454-1463Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Developers of tomorrow's command and control centers are facing numerous problems related to the vast amount of available information obtained from various sources. On a lower level, huge amounts of uncertain reports from different sensors need to be fused into comprehensible information. On a higher level, representation and management of the aggregated information will be the main task, with prediction of future course of events being the uttermost goal. Unfortunately, traditional agent modeling techniques do not capture situations where commanders make decisions based on other commanders' reasoning about one's own reasoning. To cope with this problem, we propose a decision support tool for command and control situation awareness enhancements based on game theory for inference and coupled with traditional AI methods for uncertainty modeling.

    Är nästa plattform obemannad för svensk signalspaning?: Systemanalys av Global Hawk som potentiell ersättande plattform av Gulfstream G4-SP2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Signal intelligence (SIGINT) has since a period of time been a part of the Swedish armed forces ability and during the Cold War due to events this was not a safe and easy task to perform. Considering that the present system is beginning to become outdated, a plan to replace this system should be at its place in a short amount of time.The purpose with this study is, by using a system analysis method, find a suitable replacer for the present platform which is Gulfstream GIV-SP, carrying signal intelligence equipment. The comparative platform that has been used in this study is the Global Hawk which is a modern strategic UAV. The two platforms that are compared have been linked to the theory of the basic capabilities, the theory is delimited to Intelligence/Information, Endurance and Protection which the performance of the platforms creates.The study result in a conclusion that the Global Hawk fulfills this basic capabilities with most efficiency and the differences of an unmanned platform is positive. In terms of intelligence the platforms is rather equal and causes advantages in their own different ways but in terms of endurance and protection the Global Hawk is more efficient.The study´s conclusion is that the Global Hawk is the more efficient platform for carrying signal intelligence equip-ment but due to the high cost of the system, it is not suitable for the Swedish armed forces. However, it should be considered as a possible replacement platform in the future, as the maintenance cost decreased and the number of user has increased.

    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.

    Förstudie obemannade farkoster2012Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Unmanned vehicles are being used in many conflicts around the world today. This report gives a broad overview of the field of unmanned vehicles, and includes suggestions of how a future research activity within the field might look like.

    The overview is focussed on both systems and capabilities, as well as activities that are relevant for the Swedish Armed forces. By applying the capability areas defined in the armed forced development plan (FMUP) to both commercial systems and possible scenarios, we strive to limit the scope of the report to the most relevant topics.

    The recommendations are based upon a review of the development documents of the Swedish Armed Forces, as well as visits to units operating unmanned systems today, and the overview described above. The suggestions are as fol- lows. Broad, cross-disciplinary projects focussing on system types, e.g. UAV, UGV etc, should be formed. These should be interacting with the procure- ment process, and different level of planning activities. They should also bring together competencies across FHS and FOI, survey current research state-of- the-art, through competitions, conferences and collaborations, and transfer the results to the armed forces through demonstrations and simulations of sys- tems and subsystems. Simulations in particular are well suited to illustrate the benefits and drawbacks of a particular unmanned systems, as the interaction with such systems is mostly carried out through the computers of the control stations, even for the real systems. In this way, participants from the armed forces can get a feeling for both threats and possibilities associated with the different future and contemporary systems, which will be of use to both tactic development and procurement activities.

    Möjlig efterträdare till skolflygplan SK 602014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    The SK 60 Aircraft has been a workhorse for the Air Force’s training of future pilots since the late 1960s. The aging SK60 aircraft is going out of style, and the system has merely a few years of total running time left. A replacement for the SK 60 needs to be implemented in the coming years, and the Armes Forces Flying School has been commissioned to conduct flight tests on suitable replacement systems. This study will conduct a system analysis of two aircrafts mentioned in the Flying Schools report. The systems are mainly valued on their suitability as a replacement for the SK 60 from a training perspective. The systems are also valued based on the possibility of expanding the military utility of each system such as their ability to carry out attack operations. Based on the sample the Pilatus Aircraft PC -21 and BAE Systems Hawk MK 120 aircrafts were chosen for evaluation. The two planes are different yet comparable which makes them suitable for comparison in this study. Hawk MK 120 was deemed as the most suitable replacement for the SK 60. The MK 120 appeared as slightly more favorable than the PC-21 after valuation and appraisal, both from an educational point of view but also with regard to its ability for extended military purposes.

    Teknikens påverkan på taktikutvecklingen: Ett bidrag till marin teoriutveckling2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim is to study the current theory of the causal link between technological development and tactical development. The study will investigate how the implementation of new technology affects the development of tactics through the development of theories. The work will investigate whether there is new technological development that creates new tactical possibilities and changes use of tactics, or if there is a tendency for new technologies to be adapted to existing operations and thereby leaving tactics unchanged. The study attempts to explain the connection by typing and developing an existing theory to contribute to the theory development in technology and tactics. 

    This investigation has explained the causal link between technology and tactics through an existing theory. The work has through the study strengthened the theory and identified another cause of causation in the technology and tactics area. The study has therefore contributed to a theory development.

    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden a huge readjusting of the armed forces is in progress. As a part ofthis readjusting there are, within different areas, several ongoing studiesfocusing on trying to find the organisation and equipment of the future. Thetime spans for these studies are beyond 2010.This thesis would like to contribute to this study by showing that the futurebattlefield demands new and more acute sensor capabilities. I will highlight thedemands and requirements for sensors on a combat vehicle by analysing of thefuture battlefield. From these demands I will identify the technical possibilitiesthat will solve the future needs of the combat vehicle in regard to electroopticalsensors.These possibilities are then linked to four separated areas within the vehicle.The areas are the capability to conduct surveillance, to manoeuvre, protectionand the use of firepower. The firepower capability includes that of the ownvehicle and that of other platforms.This analysis concludes that multi-sensor capacity, in combination withnetworked based information flows, will alter the role for the combat vehicle.Not only on the battlefield but also in regard to the users within the vehicleitself.This thesis makes an attempt to capitalize these changes by combining thepossibilities into a technical concept. This concept shows that by optimizingthe sensors for the different roles one also gets a maximized capability of thecombat vehicle in itself. It also concludes that not everything has to change andthat some of the old capabilities have to be kept.

    Vad innebär begreppet tillgänglighet för personalen vilka arbetar med systemet JAS 39 Gripen?2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish Government has decided that the Swedish Armed Forces shall decrease the numbers of JAS 39C/D aircraft from 100 to 60 upgraded JAS 39E. With decreased numbers of aircraft, increased availability becomes more important. This was also pointed out by the Swedish Government in the appropriation bill to the Swedish Armed Forces for Fiscal Year 2017.

    Even though increased availability is clearly stated, there are uncertainties regarding how availability should be measured and what availability is. This thesis researches what the personnel working with the JAS 39 Gripen system believes availability is, and compares these answers between different groups of personnel within the Swedish Armed Forces as well as between the Swedish Armed Forces and the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration. This comparison aims to point out differences and similarities in order to create a more common view of the term availability and by this facilitate future availability increasing measures. Apart from this, a comparison is made regarding the term availability with other nations operating the JAS 39 Gripen system in order to research to which extent military culture affects the answers.

    Taktiskt mobilteleutnyttjande utan eget RAN!: är det möjligt?2001Student paper otherStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to study and discuss the possibilities for the Swedish National Defense Forces to use civilian mobile telecommunication systems (COTS) and commercial infrastructure when an own Radio Access Network isn’t available. The time horizon stretches to approximately year 2015.According to the ongoing development in mobile telecommunications the essay study and discuss the possibilities to use civilian technique in spite of an eventual procurement of an own tactical radio access network. First an inventory and description of the development of the technique is done. Then control and aiming for training and equipment procurement is studied. In the analysis, the above is used together with an evaluation model, containing specific demands and scenarios, for the armed forces to find out the pros and cons of such a use. Finally an attempt is made to propose areas for further studies. The conclusions of the essay are that there are both pros and cons of such a use, the development of the infrastructure, that is very much going to determine to what extent it is possible. Availability, security and robustness are key functionality's for military communication systems. The use of COTS and commercial infrastructure will not reach the desired level of these functionality's, today or in near future as a stand-alone system. But it’s interesting enough for further studies. Identified areas for further studies are, laws and official rules for contracts between the defense administration and civilian telecommunication companies, new end-to-end encryption methods and field tests with COTS at one of the Armed Forces tactical combat schools.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to shed light on possibilities and limitations regarding different systems for identification of contacts on the battlefield, mainly for the purpose of reducing fratricide. The essay will also shed light on if the introduction of systems for identification on the battlefield is the best one single method that will reduce fratricide. The purpose is that the reader will achieve an understanding of how different systems for target identification will reduce the risk for fratricide. In addition the possibilities and limitations of other systems in the field of combat identification will also be addressed.

    The essay describes different events where fratricide has occurred and connects these events with the possibilities and limitations of the identification systems described and how these systems could have reduced the risk for fratricide.

    The essay also describes different systems for target identification and combat identification.

    HPM-vapen vs. kommersiell UAV2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper in military technology discusses whether high power microwaves can affect commercial UAVs. Two non-lethal HPM-weapons are analyzed. The data is collected from a scenario where there is a high risk for collateral damage. A Swedish Armed Forces study stated that the Air Defence Battalion lacks ability to affect small UAVs. The latest knowledge is obtained from the environment in the scenario, from research and from the industry. This knowledge has enabled a logical-mathematical parametric study on the scenario within a military perspective. The result of the study is the assessment that commercial UAVs are assessed to have low protection factor, facilitates decision to act in all environments and provides an electronic shield protection of a large surface at the same time. HPM-weapons can´t stand as a single system for protection against commercial UAVs and achieve guaranteed effect. However, HPM-weapons can complement other weapon systems and thus make the air defense stronger through systems of systems. HPM-weapons can reduce the capability deficiency against commercial UAVs.

    Nu har den första drönarsvärmen anfallit - betyder det något?2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the civil war in Syria numerous weak groups fought the Russian-supported regime. In January 2018 a Russian air base and port in Syria were attacked. It was the first time that swarms of small cheap drones carried out long-range and concentrated precision attacks. An exploratory case study uses theories of change and surprise to detect patterns from the event. The purpose was to see if this case can identify any aspects of asymmetries in the arena of warfare which may be useful primarily in a Swedish context.  The results show that the event was disruptive, but was expected, rather than surprising. If the enemy use disruptive technology to change their means and methods, in terms of performance, numbers and costs, there is an opportunity to exploit asymmetries in the arena of war.

    Sensorer i whiteout2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    När en helikopterbesättning skall landa en helikopter i en whiteout finns alltid risken att besättningen förlorar sina referenser till omvärlden. Resultatet av detta blir att besättningen riskerar att bli spatialt desorienterad. Vid spatial desorientering riskerar besättningen att förlora uppfattningen om vart i luftrummet helikoptern befinner sig och om den driver åt något håll. Uppsatsen har övergripande undersökt elektromagnetiska sensorer och analyserat hur dessa skulle kunna bidra till att bibehålla besättningens spatiala medvetande. Stoftmolnets varierande karaktäristik bidrar till att sensorerna måste vara anpassningsbara. Rapporten fann att elektrooptiska sensorer var kraftigt begränsade vid whiteout och att radarsensorer var mer lämpade för uppgiften.

    Road traffic noise: GIS tools for noise mapping and a case study for Skåne region2009In: ISPRS Workshop on quality, scale and analysis aspects of city models, Lund, Sweden, December 3-4, 2009, Lund, 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Traffic noise pollution is a growing problem that highly affects the health of people. To cope with this problem one has to regulate traffic or construct noise barriers. In order to implement effective measures against traffic noise the information about its distribution – noise maps - is imperative. This paper presents our work in creating a noise calculator software package implementation that can create noise maps. The noise calculator is based on the noise model described in Nordic prediction method for road traffic noise. As a case study, the noise calculator was used to build both large noise maps for Skåne region in south of Sweden and detailed noise maps for smaller areas in the city of Lund.

    Cyberkrigföring i kombination med elektronisk krigföring: En analys av morgondagens krigföringsmetod2018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The accelerating technology development together with the increased digitalization of society has changed the way in which conventional warfare today is carried out, and a decisive in the battle is no longer achieved only by the use of bullets and gunpowder. Today’s military personnel are dependent on unhindered use of wireless information and communication technology (ICT). Military vehicles and weapons systems are increasingly dependent on software, wireless network access and control/sensor systems in order to operate. This has given rise to a new defense arena, Cyberspace. As physical access to the opponent's system may be limited, wireless access may become the key to success in military operations. This in the form of combining cyber- and electronic warfare. As Sweden has now begun to rebuild the national defense capability and a high-tech opponent who has come a long way in the development of electronic warfare is at our doorstep, this new type of warfare must be highlighted. This thesis aims to explore how the combination of cyber-and electronic warfare can be utilized during military operations in today's conventional warfare and whether the ability can be implemented at tactical echelon. This is done by a case study on a military operation from 2011, when Iran, using their cyber and electronic warfare capability, supposedly managed to hijack an American Stealth-UAV, RQ-170 Sentinel. The result shows that the ability to influence the opponent within the cyberspace, denying them access to the electromagnetic spectrum, and thus denying their use of wireless ICT, can provide a decisive advantage in military operations in today's conventional warfare.

    Kan obemannade undervattensfarkoster förbättra ubåtens förmågor?2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis will contribute to the question if and how an unmanned undersea vehicle (UUV) will improve submarine capability. The thesis is based on the USA Navy Unmanned Undersea Vehicle Master Plan and the Norwegian AUV called HUGIN. The purpose of the thesis is to identify UUV capabilities suitable for submarines and how they can contribute to the Swedish submarine capabilities. The methodology of this essay is based on a comparison, between a conventional submarine with UUV capability and one without, to clarify the operational advantages. The result of the analysis, with focus on international missions, shows that the biggest advantage of implementing UUV functions for the submarine are in the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions. This implementation will improve the situation awareness. The functionality of collecting ocean environment including bottom mapping will improve tactical decision aid and battlespace preparation. The UUV will also improve communication and information operations capability.The anti-submarine warfare function will be improved with enhanced capability to monitor more than one chokepoint. Special operations from submarines will gain some advantages within freedom of action, depending on the possibility of launching the special operation at a longer distance from shore.The attack capability is only in an indirect way influenced, which is by a better surveillance function. The mine-laying capability will only improve within deployment and positioning of the mine. The mine-laying capability is not requested in the international missions and therefore this capability is not recommended for implementation.
