    Ytstridsfartygs ballistiska skydd mot finkalibriga projektiler2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is about the extent to which simplified penetration calculations ofsmall-caliber projectiles is a useful tool for assessing the physical protectioncapability. The work should be seen as an attempt to create an accessible tool inthe form of a simplified equation that allows for a better and safer use of thenaval vessels. The tool will also be used at different levels so that decisions andinstructions could be clearer.Performed calculations show a very limited capacity of a ship's basic design interms of physical protection against the use of small-caliber projectiles.How do we know that the calculations correct? By verifying the calculations withpractical shooting tests, a substantial condition to answer the question will becreated. To shoot against a material with two different thicknesses estimated toproduce perforation and non-perforation is a good approximation of the equationusability in the context.

    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats undersöker huruvida vi med hjälp av Gustav von Schmalensees modifikation av Lanchesters kvadratiska N2-Law kan bestyrka eller falsifiera teorin att en kustflotta med hjälp av en amfibisk miljö kan slå en på pappret överlägsen motståndare. Den komplexa miljö som en kustremsa eller skärgård utgör påverkar en högsjöflottas kapacitet att utgöra ett hot mot en kustflotta vars taktik är anpassad för terrängen och de synergieffekter som den ger. Uppsatsen försöker påvisa hur stor inverkan variabeln geografi har i sammanhanget.

    Vidare undersöker uppsatsen huruvida det är möjligt att förbättra von Schmalensees modifikation av Lanchesters N2-Law med hjälp av den faktiska sannolikheten för träff med sjömålsrobot inomskärs respektive utomskärs. Med hjälp av Försvarshögskolans sjökrigsspel Simple Surface Warfare Model (SSM) genomförs ett experiment där teorierna testas empiriskt.

    Resultaten visar en förbättring i prediceringen av stridsutfall med sjömålsrobot om koefficienten för den faktiska sannolikheten för träff räknas in i ekvationen. Vidare konstateras att en stark korrelation kan ses i en mindre kustflottas överlevnad i amfibisk miljö då de möter en på pappret överlägsen motståndare.

    Zirconium nitride based transparent heat mirror coatings: preparation and characterisation1994In: Solar Energy, ISSN 0038-092X, E-ISSN 1471-1257, Vol. 32, no 2, p. 199-212Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Transparent heat mirror coatings based on thin zirconium nitride films have been prepared using reactive magnetron sputtering. The zirconium nitride films have been sandwiched between layers of zirconium oxide. It is shown that the multilayer configuration ZrO2/ZrN/ZrO2 can be used as solar control coatings on window glazings. A visible transmittance of around 60% and a thermal emittance lower than 0.2 can be obtained, and the ratio between visible transmittance and total solar transmittance can be as high as 1.7. The influence of substrate temperature on the optical quality of the films is evaluated and it is shown that the crystal structure of the first oxide layer is of importance for the optical quality of the nitride. The influence of preparation conditions and accelerated ageing has been modelled using the optical constants of thin films prepared under identical conditions as the films in the multilayer coatings.

    Äldre militärteoriers giltlighet imodern sjökrigföring2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The amounts of theories that deal with naval warfare are many. Several of those are developed under the previous century when tactics and technology were in the eve of development. Many of modern thinkers within science of war often refer to older but recognized theories. The purpose of this essay is to examine if the old but recognized theories are of current interest in modern naval warfare. The questions that are used in this essay are, what is the characteristics of the war of Yom Kippur with Mahan’s offensive and Corbett’s defensive as a starting-point and are there any of the theories that are prominent. The examination is then carried out through analysing Mahan’s offensive and Corbett’s defensive. With their theories as a starting-point the characteristics of Mahan’s offensive and Corbett’s defensive are to be found within the war of Yom Kippur.

    The conclusions show that there are characteristics of Mahan’s offensive and Corbett’s defensive within the war of Yom Kippur. The defensive is striking on the political strategic level. The offensive is conspicuous on the military strategic and tactical level.

    Äldre militärteoriers relevans i nutida sjökrigföring: En fallstudie på Falklandskriget 19822017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Alfred Thayer Mahan and Julian Stafford Corbett, two of the most influential and important strategists of sea power in the beginning of the twentieth century. Their theories today form the basis for several of the theories of sea power that exist today. The societal changes have led to the development of the naval warfare´s character until today. Despite developments in the history of naval warfare and it´s characteristics over the century there are being debated about the principles of sea power that Mahan and Corbett wrote might still be valid or not.

    The aim of this essay is to investigate whether Mahan and Corbetts principles of sea power during the Falklands war as a case study might still be valid or not.

    The examination is carried out by analysing Mahan and Corbetts principles of blockade, establish of sea command and exercise of sea command respectively to extract variables in the theory and examine on the case Falklands war.

    The results of this case study shows that the theories military blockade, naval blockade and establish of sea command are still valid to a certain extent but more research is needed to determine the principles general validity in the naval warfare today.

    Är armén tillräckligt lärande?: En lärande organisation ur ett Afghanistanperspektiv2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the essay has been to analyze if the Swedish Army ground forces, can be looked upon as a learning organization as the doctrines declare. This in the perspective that a working, collective Lessons Learned-process does not exist in the Swedish Army with the possible long term effects of diminishing its war-fighting capabilities.

    The method is a qualitative text analysis of the recently published report from the Swedish Army Land Warfare Center. The report focuses on tactical experiences from the Swedish ground forces perspective through the years 2009-2012, in the over a decade long Afghanistan-operation.

    The result indicates that the specified organization, the Army and its ground forces, can be seen as a learning organization but with great flaws. The flaws can be seen in all chosen theoretical disciplines, but are the most palpable in the most important one - the system thinking - which is essential for long term learning. But the analysis also gives some good news.

    The discipline that embraces the most indications of learning is the personal mastery. The inner strength, will and skill sets of the personnel are striking. The analysis points out that a deep learning exists, specifically on individual and lower levels, but is hindered by the system. Hence, the organization is filled with tacit knowledge. The conclusion is that the war-fighting capabilities might actually have been strengthened, but mainly on individual and low level but not as the organization should have. It lacks a working system for it.

    Är Bundeswehr insatsberedd?: Den tyska försvarsmakten och europeiska säkerhetsutmaningar2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The report examines the issue of the deployability abroad of the German Armed Forces, the Bundeswehr, at present and in terms of future-oriented defence reforms. It notes that the Bundeswehr is growing in terms of GDP spending though not yet in numbers, that there are novel ideas about how to further develop German military doctrine toward its use in international military operations within as well as alongside NATO, and that mechanisms for identifying and closing military capability gaps through procurement are coming into place. At the same time, there are a number of industry-related, legal and political constraints in place, some of which appear poised to continue exert influence over the entire sector for years to come. Absent a very conscious effort on the part of the government and the respective ministries and institutions to alter the status quo, especially in conjunction with aggravated security and defence challenges in Germany’s vicinity, it appears unlikely that these modest steps will yield substantive results in the short to mid-term.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this essay was to clarify whether the management andorganization of the Swedish Armed Forces Headquarters permit theArmed Forces to be led accordingly to its management theory. The essaygave answer to the following main question; What added value does itbring to use different organizational theoretical reasoning and perspectivein a study of the management of the Armed Forces? The Headquarterorganization HKV 03 was the object of study with focus on the centrallevel. It was the material used by the Headquarters to communicate itsmanagement philosophy, organization and management to others withinthe organization that was used as sources. The theoretical framework wasmainly Bolman & Deal’s new criteria for success and Ashkenas’ fourperspectives on how to study organizations. The method was qualitativewith a combination of an inductive and a deductive attempt and ahermeneutic approach. The management philosophy of the Armed Forcesand the management of the Headquarters were separately analysed. Afterthat followed the compared results, which led to the subsequent answer;• It brought greater understanding to how the work operates andwhat effects different changes will convey, which in the long runmight create the necessary conditions for a more dynamic andvivid organization that can deliver what the client demands.

    Är doktrindilemmat verkligen ett dilemma?2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    According to the doctrinal dilemma, the construction of military doctrines is challenging. Either the doctrines become too explicit and specific or they become too abstract for the target groups, both of which have negative consequences. The purpose of this study is to examine to what extent the dilemma exists and how it is taken into consideration in the doctrinal development process. In order to analyse the dilemma, two Swedish doctrines have been reviewed and their authors interviewed.  

    The results indicates that the doctrinal dilemma has had a central role in the doctrinal development process of both doctrines. The authors have handled the dilemma through constructing abstract rather than specific doctrines. The study also reveals that it is necessary that doctrines are consistently formulated and that the users are acquainted with the style of the doctrine. The dissertation contributes with an increased understanding of the dilemma, facilitating the construction of doctrines and enabling that they can serve as force multipliers.

    Är EU en normativ makt?: En fallstudie av EUTM Mali i relation till teorin Normative Power Europe2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The debate on Normative Power Europe (NPE) has been undergoing many discussions on whether or not the European Union can be a "normative" power when conducting military operations. This study aims to address the issue, contribute to the ongoing debate and provide a response to the critics with a case study on the European Union Military Training Mission in Mali (EUTM Mali). The author argues that the European Union can be a "normative" power as the mission is based on training, education and counseling, and that a military training mission combined with a "comprehensive approach" should be separated from other military missions.

    Är FMQ-projektet ett framgångsrikt exempel på ett organisatoriskt förändringsarbete?2005Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the late nineties the Swedish Armed Forces carried out an extensive trainingproject, “Quality of the Armed Forces”, shortened AFQ. The overall purpose ofthe project was to alter the organization into becoming more able to confrontchanges, to be quality conscious and more efficient. The project shows greatsimilarities with management theories about organizational alteration projects.But is AFQ a succesful example of an organizational alteration project?I have examined how the project was carried out by measuring the attitude ofthe employees and the ambition in the choice of methods. I have also measuredfactors of vital importance to make an organization function as efficiently aspossible and how they have changed since AFQ was carried out. By comparingdifferent local units I have tried to show if there is a connection between howAFQ was carried out and how the factors of vital importance have changed. Asa result, I try to answer if and what effects AFQ have produced. Furthermore, Itry to show if the changes of factors of vital importance imply that the ArmedForces can be considered as quick, flexible and more able to confront changes.My examination shows that AFQ in many ways was far-sighted and wellthought out but it is not possible to show any effects today. Furthermore, thereare still obstacles wich prevent the Armed Forces from being considered asquick, flexible and more able to confront changes. This depends on the fact thatthere are still strong hierarchical patterns and limits between organizationalfunctions. Most of all, it depends on hierarchical reward systems and the factthat process-management does not function. Consequently I can state that AFQisn´t a successful example of an organizational alteration project. Theexamination indicates three reasons. The employees didn´t understand that theproject was urgent, local unitcommanders and other high managers didn´t havethe right conviction and force and finally, there was a lack of a well-definedvision describing where the changes would lead.

    Är Karolinska Institutets varumärke mer värt än ett människoliv?: En fallstudie om Karolinska Institutets kriskommunikation i samband med Paolo Macchiarini-affären2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Karolinska Instituten är en statlig myndighet. Därmed är det extra viktigt att lagar och regler följs. Karolinska Institutets högsta ledning tillsätts av regeringen och den forskning som bedrivs på Karolinska Institutet är världsledande och har ett högt anseende. Förtroende är ett nyckelord och SVT:s dokumentärserie ”Experimentet” återgav en bild som gav eko i världen. Karolinska Institutets förtroende blev rubbat, etik och moral ifrågasattes och patienter dog. Händelsen benämndes Macchiarini-affären och en kris uppstod för Karolinska Institutet.  

    Utvecklingen i samhället har medfört att en kris är en naturlig del av en organisation och inte något ovanligt. En av de viktigaste processer när en kris sker är en organisations förmåga till en fungerande kriskommunikation. Det har bedrivits forskning på området men eftersom varje händelse är unik med många faktorer som påverkar efterfrågas ytterligare forskning. Forskningen är spridd över flera vetenskapliga områden vilket medför att det kan vara svårt att få ett helhetsgrepp över områdena krishantering och kriskommunikation.

    Denna studie grundar sig i en kvalitativ fallstudie av hur Karolinska Institutet kommunicerat i samband med Macchiarini-affären. Som underlag för den empiriska undersökningen används pressmeddelanden från Karolinska Institutet. Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur Karolinska Institutet har kommunicerat under krisen och se vilka försvarsstrategier utifrån image repair theory Karolinska Institutet använde tillsammans med de retoriska appellformerna. Studien har även ett teoretiskt syfte att sammankoppla de retoriska appellformerna med försvarsstrategier från image repair theory. Kriskommunikation, image repair theory och retorik med utgångspunkt av appellformerna utgör det teoretiska ramverket.

    Analysen och resultatet av denna studie ska bidra med en ökad förståelse för kriskommunikation inom statliga verksamheter och dess förvaltning. Med hjälp av studien kommer det gå att utläsa hur Karolinska Institutet kommunicerat samt se om organisationer kan gynnas av att utgå både från image repair theory samt de retoriska appellformerna i sin kriskommunikation.

    Är krig blott en fortsättning på politiken med alla medel: En flerfallstudie av uppfattningen om hybridkrigföring i Baltikum2018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The research paper examines the relation between theoretical descriptions of hybrid warfare and national observation of the phenomena in the Baltic countries. The study is based on the research problem that there is no coherent definition and scholarly debate about the nature of hybrid warfare. By comparing theoretical hybrid components with threats in the national security- and defence concepts of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, the study aims to determine whether the theories accurately reflect empirical perception. The theoretical framework was based on 3 theories of hybrid warfare, which describes both military and non-military aspects of hybrid threats. The research study is that of a comparative case study. The security- and defence concepts is studied through the method of qualitative text analysis.

    The results of the study show that several of the hybrid components is described and is seen as a threat in the cases. However, the results were impaired, mainly due to temporal difference between studied texts, incoherent definitions of central concepts and lacking distinctions between internal and external influences in text and theory. The analysis concludesthat a continued focus on the inclusion of non-military means is relevant in studies about hybrid warfare and contemporary conflict.

    Är Mahans teorier kring sjöherravälde tillämpbara på ubåtskrigföring?2013Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen beskriver vad som kännetecknar och omfattar begreppen sjömakt och sjöherravälde. Detta mynnar ut i en studie av Mahans teorier för att etablera, utöva och bestrida ett herravälde till sjöss. Här har teorierna kring avgörande slag, sjöfartskrig och ”fleet in being” valts ut för att avgränsa arbetet.

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka om Mahans teorier för att etablera, utöva och bestrida ett sjöherravälde går att tillämpa på ubåtskrigföring. Utifrån historiska händelser kring sjöfartskriget mellan Nazityskland och Storbritannien under andra världskriget samt stridigheterna mellan Argentinska flottan och den brittiska under Falklandskriget, undersöks det ifall Mahans teorier är tillämpbara på den ubåtskrigföringen som fördes i respektive fall. Fallen avslutas med diskussion som för fram tillämpbarheten i teorierna.

    De slutsatser som dras är att teorierna i stort går att applicera på ubåtskrigföring men tekniken och taktiken samt motmedel som utvecklats mot ubåtar gör att det finns för- och nackdelar med att använda ubåten som vapen.

    Ubåten har potential att skapa ett avgörande i sjöstriden men för ett etablerande av sjöherraväldet krävs det kontroll inte bara på utan även under och över ytan, där ubåten inte ensam kan utföra detta. Tekniken och underrättelserna är avgörande för att ubåten ska kunna vara ett effektivt vapen mot sjöfarten. Ubåten binder upp resurser i form av konvojsystem och tvingar motståndaren till val av transportväg och medel. Dock kunde inte Tyskland nyttja sina ubåtar på samma sätt som idag, då luftoberoende framdrivningssystem och kärnkraft inte fanns tillgänglig för att hålla ubåten under ytan några längre tider. Ubåtens förmåga till dolt uppträdande lämpar sig väl för metoden ”fleet in being”. Vetskapen om att en ubåt kan finnas binder resurser och tvingar anfallande part till förändrade av taktik och tillvägagångssätt för operationen.

    Är manöverkrigsföringen ett nytt påfund eller tillämpats förr?: Tillämpade Rommel manöverkrigsföring vid slaget om Kobarid?2009Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose with this essay is to find out if Rommel used what we today call manoeuvre warfare? I choose this subject because I’m interested in infantry tactics and the breakthrough Rommel did during the twelfth battle of Kobarid. A much smaller unit made a large unit surrender. The two methods I will use are description and case study because those two methods are good to work with when to describe what happen during a battle on a specific place on the battlefield. I’ve reed different books about the twelfth battle in Kobarid and doctrines about manoeuvre warfare in the Swedish armed forces. Finally I’ve analysed the facts and drawn conclusions however Rommel used manoeuvre warfare during the battle or not.

    The result is that Rommel used manoeuvre warfare at the battle of Kobarid but I don’t that think Rommel knew the words like we knew them today. Words like mission tactics or manoeuvre warfare.

    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.

    Är tilldelad tid tillräcklig tid?: en undersökning av 2007 års omorganisationsförändring av högkvarteret avseende den flygtaktiska stabens anpassning till CJTF konceptet2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study performs a theoretical analysis of the Air Component Command’s adaption with the CJTF-concept during an organizational change of the Swedish Armed Forces Headquarters in 2007. Common experiences show that organizational changes of complex governmental organizations are difficult to perform because changes of structure and methods often take a long time.  It also shows that structure is easier to change than method. Based on these common experiences especially regarding the difficulty in changing methods a hypothesis has been formed to support the study about whether the ACC´s adaption only is done by structural means. The purpose with this study is to test the hypothesis from one theoretical perspective of organizational changes, the instrumental perspective. The result will hopefully contribute with knowledge on the eve of future organizational changes. The conclusion of this study confirms experiences about the difficulty in organizational changes, especially regarding methods. It also shows that one of the most obvious reasons seems to be the lack of available time for preparation.

    Är uppdragstaktik och utvecklande ledarskap förenligt med utvecklandet av anpassningsbara officerare?2011Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The human ability to adapt to a changing environment and a never ending technological development, can be observed by counting the many times a new invented weapon result in a new kind of defence. Today’s military personnel must not only adapt to technological, tactical and environmental changes, but also to new kind of objectives. Missions, conducted under the authorization of the UN, consist not only of combat missions, but also of considerable amount of civil-military cooperation (CIMIC). If adaptability is part of what has taken us this far, it’s reasonable to assume that adaptability will be as important in the future to come. Hence, an armed force with a high level of adaptability is likely to be advantageous over a less adaptable enemy.

    This paper was written with the sole purpose of finding out whether the Swedish Armed Forces’ (SAF) command & control-method (Auftragstaktik) and the provided leadership model (Developmental leadership) were consistent with the development of adaptable officers. A describing comparison indicated numerous similarities between all three concepts, thus it would seem

    auftragstaktik and developmental leadership has in-born support for the development of adaptability.

    Är vi fast i snöspåret eller rör vi oss framåt?: En studie av Stockholms stads trafikkontor, Trafikverket och Stockholms länsstyrelses lärandeprocess efter snöhanteringen 5 december 2012 och 8–9 november 2016.2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study has been to use Birkland’s (2009) theory about crisis induced learning to see how the collective learning process has worked for the three actors Stockolms Stads Trafikkontor, Trafikverket and Stockholms länsstyrelse after the two large cases of snow falls 2012 and 2016. I found that there was a need for this study as there are very few studies done that focus on how collective learning works in collaborating organisations despite of the fact that it is an important factor for a strong crisis management capability. I have done this through both creating my own data by use of qualitative interviews and then analysing this with written material in forms of evaluations and annual reports. After applying Birkland’s (2009) theory I identify that an important factor for change to occur as a result of the necessary learning processes he has identified has been through collaboration. 2016 there was more change that happened in contrast to 2012 and the main difference was the level of collaboration as this was higher and more evolved after 2016.

    Ådalen och bloody sunday: En jämförande fallstudie av militärt våld2015Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The 1900s saw two incidents of states using their military in civil disorder situations, which resulted in the killing of unarmed citizens. May 14, 1931 in Ådalen, marks a significant part of Swedish history and its view of the use of military force.  On that day, a peaceful protest march escalated, which resulted in live firing by the military stationed there to uphold law and order. This resulted in the deaths of five civilians and the prohibition of the use of military force in incidents of civil disorder. In 1972 in Northern Ireland a similar event took place on January 30, which is commonly known as Bloody Sunday. The Troubles were raging and resulted in protests for civil rights by nationalists. On that day a protest march escalated and the soldiers from the 1st Battalion of the Parachute Regiment were sent in to the city and killed fifteen civilians. This marked the worst case of military abuse in The Troubles, but resulted in no further restrictions on the use of military force in the United Kingdom.     The issue in this thesis is how cultural factors affect states’ views of the use of military force.

    The purpose of this thesis is to increase the understanding of how two cases of the use of military force against civilians, can have such different outcomes and expression. The theory used in the thesis comes from the book The Culture of National Security and explains how a state’s norms, culture and identity affect its national security.

        The conclusion is that a change in a state’s culture and identity affects the state’s view of the use of military force. Sweden had a major change in identity, which resulted in a new law against the use of military force in cases of civil disorder. The United Kingdom did not have a major identity change, which resulted in no major changes to policy on the use of military force.

    Gång på gång inleds historien på nytt. År noll postuleras och en ny början utlovas. Andrus Ers hämtar exempel från den franska respektive amerikanska revolutionen, liksom Röda khmerernas Kambodja, och menar att utropandet av historiens början, såväl som dess slut, är två sidor av modernitetens ansträngda förhållande till historien.

    Åskkäpp, bössa och dunderpåk: Automatkarbinen i den svenska försvarsmakten2010Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    During the 1990ies there is notable change in the assault rifle. They start to get more and more adaptable with a lot more accessories being available to the user. At the same time the assault rifle moves from rifle to carbine as many models become shorter to better suit operations in urban terrainas well as riding in vehicles. With the invasion and the following counter-insurgency operation in Afghanistan a lot of armies are experiencing problems since combat takes places at either very short or long ranges. One calls for acompact carbine suited for close quarters battle and one for a long barrelled rifle which enables soldiers to engage the enemy who often attacks from ranges exceeding the 500 meter mark. The Swedish Armed Forces had just started testing a new updated version of their AK5 assault rifle called AK5C when they committed to contributing a regular force to ISAF. The Author is of the opinion that Swedish forces lack a weapon system on squad and platoon level to engage an enemy atgreater distance than 400m which is often the case. This paper seeks to take a look at what the next Swedish assault rifle could look like taking in mind the experiences from Operation Enduring Freedom.

    Återanställning i Försvarsmakten: en intervjustudie med återanställda soldater2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to investigate the motive-structure of soldiers who has re-enlisted with the Swedish Armed forces. The following research questions were formulated: (1) Which factors influenced the decision to leave the armed forces, and (2) which factors influenced the decision to re-enlist with the armed forces. Eleven re-enlisted soldiers, from three different units, were interviewed. The interviews were analyzed according to a grounded theory-approach. A theoretical model describing the re-enlistment process from an individual perspective was developed.The theoretical model shows that in order to understand re-enlisted soldiers motive-structure in relation to re-enlistment we need to consider the following aspects: (a) the soldiers´ individual work approach, (b) their experiences of employment, (c) factors influencing their decision to leave the armed forces, (d) their reflection process that develops as a result of a contrast between the civilian and the military employment, and (e) their motives and thoughts in relation to the decision to re-enlist with the armed forces. In the report, we discuss the importance of goal attainment, commanders’ attitude towards re-enlisted soldiers and commitment and interest in the armed forces as a result of the reflection process.

    Återtagandet av markstridskrafterna 2020-2030: Arméns personalförsörjning, utbildningskapacitet samt förmågehöjning av de nationella skyddsstyrkorna2018Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Rapporten behandlar tre aspekter av ett militärt återtagande inom ramen för markstridskrafterna, närmare bestämt personalförsörjningen, utveckling av de nationella skyddsstyrkorna samt förslag med bäring på en ökning av utbildningskapaciteten.

    Avseende personalförsörjningen diskuteras de åtgärder som bör vidtas för att med plikten som redskap möjliggöra skapandet av förband med professionell profil.

    Beträffande förband med särskild inriktning mot gråzonsproblematik och mötandet av hybrida hot, behandlas nödvändigheten av att behärska vilseledning och skenmålskonstruktion samt bekämpandet av drönare. Därutöver diskuteras prioriteringarna av de underhålls- och understödsförband som måste tillföras organisationen samt hur hemvärnets personalförsörjning kan säkras intill 2030.

    Slutligen berörs möjligheten att med prefabricerade kaserner, inordnade i karusellsystem och genom samverkan med Finland skapa en större fysisk infrastruktur för utbildningsändamål.

    Önskvärda Kompetenser i en förändrad Försvarsmakt2011Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the latest years the Swedish armed forces have gone from an armed force with conscripts to voluntary men and women. When the basic training is voluntarily may the question be if the new men and women have the same approach to Desirable competences and pedagogy that is used by their officers during their training. Desirable competences are a part of the model transformational leadership and are divided into task related competence, management competence, social competence and capacitate to cope with stress.

    To deal with this problem I have used questionnaires from conscripts and a new questionnaire made on voluntary recruits.

    I have compared the results in a case study method and it shows a positive progress from the recruits view how the officers use examples from the transformational leadership. The study shows that recruits want officers to make demands, motivate and inspire them. The recruits want to know the goal with the education and they want the officers to make demands on them.

    Övergång från plikt - till frivilligt försvar: hur kan Försvarsmaktens användbarhet tänkas påverkas av det framtida soldatförsörjningssystemet?2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim and direction from the Swedish government is to go from conscription- toprofessional defense. The main reason for that transformation is the growing requirements ofutility of the Swedish defense, a utility that the existing duty defense system, according to theSwedish government doesn’t permit. The purpose of this essay is to look into and discuss howthe Swedish Defense Forces future system of recruiting soldiers will stand in comparison withthe Norwegian one, and what the eventual consequences the selected Swedish path might be,and how this will affect the utilization. On the basis of this purpose, the formulation of thecore question of this essay is: How might the Swedish Defense Forces utility be affected bythe implementation of the planned system of recruiting soldiers?The essay compares the planned Swedish system of recruiting soldiers in the future with theNorwegian one, aiming to describe distinctions and parities coupled to utility. Furthermore,the essay will also compare the differences amongst the Norwegian intentions with theirsystem of recruiting soldiers with the actual outcome. The results from these comparisons willbe analyzed, interpreted and discussed in order to answer the core question of the essay.The result of the essay shows that the utility of the Swedish Defense Forces planned systemfor the near future is essentially positively affected by the number of immediate accessibleunits. This is in line with what the Swedish government wants to accomplish. However, thereare curtain doubts as to whether the actual need of recruited soldiers will be obtained in orderto withhold that number of accessible units. Furthermore the result of the essay indicates thatthere are reasons to bear some worries concerning how the shortened basic training of theemployed/professional Swedish soldiers and sailors will influence their ability, and by thatalso their utility.
