Unmanned Ground Vehicles Military Use Within The Area Of Logistics Transportation : A study directed towards the Swedish Armed Forces enemy situation in Afghanistan (English)
Abstract [sv]

Obemannade markfarkoster är ännu ganska ovanliga i den svenska Försvarsmakten men borde kunna bli allt vanligare. UGV:er används traditionellt till att utföra smutsiga, tråkiga och farliga arbetsuppgifter. Kan de då vara användbara i Afghanistan mot den motståndare som FM möter där idag?

I studien undersöker författaren möjligheterna för obemannade markfarkoster att bidra med militär nytta inom området logistiktransporter. De obemannade transportfordonen kan från grunden utgöras av standardlastbilar i FM som har utrustats med så kallade UGV-kit. Dessa UGV-kit har till uppgift att göra standardfordonen fjärrstyrda, autonoma eller både och. Samma princip gäller för eskortfordonen som följer med till stöd för logistiktransporten, en Galt ska exempelvis kunna agera UGV.

Den irreguljära och lågteknologiska motståndaren använder ofta IED:er vid eldöverfall vilket har gjort landsvägstransporter till riskfylld verksamhet för personal ute på vägarna. Personalsäkerhet är prioriterad verksamhet i Försvarsmakten och författarens antagande är att UGV:er kan bidra till att göra logistiktransporter och eskortförfaranden till mindre riskabel verksamhet.

Abstract [en]

Unmanned ground vehicles are still quite rare within in the Swedish Armed Forces but they should become more common. UGV´s are used traditionally for performing dirty, dull and dangerous tasks. Could they also be usefull against the enemy in Afghanistan that the Swedish Armed Forces are confronting there today?

In this study the author investigates the possibilities for unmanned ground vehicles to contribute with military benefits to the area of logistics transportation. The unmanned transport vehicles can be ordinary standard trucks from the beginning which have been equipped with a so called UGV-kit. This UGV-kit´s task is to make the standard vehicles remotely controlled, autonomous or both. The same principle applies to the escorting vehicles, a Galt should for example also be able to act as a UGV.

The irregular and low technology enemy often uses IED’s when attacking, which have made road transportation to hazardous activities for the personnel on the road. Personnel safety are prioritized activity within the Swedish Armed Forces, and the authors assumtion is that UGV’s can help making logistics transportation and escorting procedures in to less risky activities.
