Decision support systems and information fusion
FOI develops smart solutions ranging from data gathering to innovative presentation systems. This research increases the user’s capability to understand and convert available information into effective decisions. FOI’s extensive breadth of competence and well-developed contact network, both national and international, gives the agency a unique capability for solving problems in many different areas of expertise.
The research work covers both technology and methods and bridges the divide between purely technical research and, for example, sensor and communications systems and human decision-making. The ultimate aim is to develop improved command and control capabilities, primarily in the defence environment but not only here. Our particular strength lies in our ability, in concert with others, to take an overall perspective in the development of support tools for command and control and for decision-making processes in complex environments. Our customers include the Swedish Armed Forces and the EU but also Vinnova and the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.
The research is conducted mainly in two main areas:
- Decision support, knowledge management and information fusion, and
- Simulation and Distributed Systems
