Decision support systems and information fusion

The Swedish Defence Research Agency develops smart solutions ranging from data collection to innovative presentation systems. The research increases the user’s ability to understand and translate available information into effective decisions. The wide range of competencies and well-developed national and international networks provides a unique ability to solve many problems within the 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. Areas of experties include artificial intelligence, information fusion, security informatics, modelling and simulation, and decision making


The research is conducted mainly in two main areas:

  • Decision support, knowledge management and information fusion, and
  • Simulation and Distributed Systems
