C4ISR - Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance
Within FOI's Division of C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance), our focus is on the human being, and we develop solutions stretching from data acquisition by means of advanced sensors to innovative presentation systems. This produces smart solutions that increase the user’s ability to gain an understanding of the situation in order to be able to make better decisions.
Information systems that perform smoothly are vital in contexts spanning from major natural disasters to more everyday uses such as web-based systems for train times.
Our research spans the entire chain from sensors to decision support. Sensors or systems of sensors can provide early warning, monitor events, assist in guiding the work input and surveying the extent of damage. Examples of sensor systems where we have extensive knowledge and experience is radar systems and optronic systems.
We produce operative knowledge that is delivered to the customer in several different ways, ranging from demonstrations to applications out in the field. Our way of working is based on close collaboration with the customer. As an example, we offer training sessions and often participate directly in studies at the customer’s facilities. We can combine the breadth of all FOI research activities into solutions that fit every customer.
Our main customers are the Swedish Armed Forces and the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration, whom we assist in matters such as materiel procurement. But we also conduct research in order to provide new solutions to industry and businesses, as well as crisis management for government agencies.
