FOI has during the period 2007-2009 carried out the project "Anläggningsskydd med fokus på internationella insatser". The aim of this report is to give an overview to the project and its surrondings in the form of question formulations, flow of information and adjacent activities and to synoptically account for achived results. During 2007 the question formulations of the project were: 1. How are protective solutions to be designed to counter the threat of terror and sabotage mainly during international operations? 2. How are protective solutions to be designed to counter shaped charges, projectiles and other weapons effects? During the two last years of the project the question formulations were: 1. What armed threats (including terror and sabotage) are there against facilities and armed forces in/at facilities like camps, entrenchments etcetera. 2. What principles can be used to protect against the armed threats according to the question above? 3. How should the capacity of a protected facility be tested or calculated? Starting with the three question formulations the flow of information to and from the project, adjacent activities and the performed studies are discussed.
