High Power Microwave - fremtidens luftvern/luftforsvar?

Abstract [no]

High Power Microwave-våpen (HPM-våpen) representerer et fremtidig våpensystem som har denegenskapen at de nøytraliserer og ødelegger kapasiteter hos en motstander, dog uten direkte tap avmenneskeliv. HPM-våpen bør således være meget interessante å studere som en mulig fremtidigkapasitet i Försvarsmakten (FM).Målet med denne studien er å undersøke hvorvidt HPM-våpen har en operativ fremtid innenfor densvenske FM. Hensikten er således mer detaljert å undersøke hvorvidt HPM-våpen kan utgjøre eneffektiv beskyttelse mot luftmål for landstridsavdelinger. Oppsatsen gjør en kobling til utviklingen oginnføringen av Nettverksbasert Försvar i FM, og gjennomfører undersøkelsen med utgangspunkt i detre basiskapasitetene påvirkning, beskyttelse, og ledelse. Oppsatsen undersøker det operative grunnlagfor utvikling og implementering av HPM-våpen i rollen som luftvern (LV)/luftforsvar til støtte forlandstridsavdelinger.Hovedkonklusjonene indikerer at det finns gode operative argumenter for å satse på en utvikling ogimplementering av HPM-våpen i FM. Spesielt blir en slik bekjempnings- og beskyttelseskapasitetviktig for det Nettverksbaserte Försvar (NBF). Samtidig påvises tekniske/fysiske og operativebegrensninger som indikerer at HPM-våpen alene ikke kan forventes erstatte dagens tradisjonelleluftvernsystemer. Den beste løsning ligger ventelig i en kombinasjon, der man samtidig kan rendyrkedet enkelte delsystems kapasiteter innenfor NBF.

Abstract [en]

High Power Microwave-weapons (HPM-weapons) represent a future weapons system with the ability toneutralize and destroy enemy capabilities, though without a direct loss of lives. Therefore, furtherstudies of HPM-weapons and their capacities could be relevant and interesting to The Swedish ArmedForces.The purpose of this research paper is to investigate whether or not HPM-weapons have a future in theSwedish Defence Forces. The aim is to develop a theoretical and technical foundation in order toinvestigate HPM-weapons in a developed scenario. The research paper has a strong connection to thedevelopment and implementation of the Swedish Network Based Defence (NBF) programme. Theconducted analysis is based on three fundamental capabilities; affect, protect, and command and control(C2). The research paper investigates the foundation of development and implementation of HPMweaponsin the Air Defense (AD) role in support of army units.The main conclusions indicate that there are strong arguments to move forward the development andimplementation of HPM-weapons in the Swedish Armed Forces. As both an offensive and a defensivecapability, HPM-weapons could be essential in the Swedish Network Based Defense programme. At thesame time, technological and physical limitations do exist, and it is therefore not likely that HPMweaponsalone can replace and take over the role of conventional AD-systems of today. The optimalsolution seems to consist of a mix of HPM-weapons and conventional AD-systems (cannon/rocket).Nevertheless, it is important that future weapons systems are fully integrated in the Network BasedDefense concept, and can counter a wide threat spectrum.
