  1. 1. Dynamic Resource Provisioning and Survivability Strategies in Optical Networks

    Author : Jawwad Ahmed; Lena Wosinska; Andrea Fumagalli; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; optical networks; passive optical networks; wavelength; routing; Survivability; protection; restoration; SRA - ICT; SRA - Informations- och kommunikationsteknik;

    Abstract : Optical networks based on Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) technology show many clear benefits in terms of high capacity, flexibility and low power consumption. All these benefits make WDM networks the preferred choice for today’s and future transports solutions which are strongly driven by a plethora of emerging online services. READ MORE

  2. 2. On the Military Utility of Spectral Design in Signature Management : a Systems Approach

    Author : Kent Andersson; Jouko Vankka; Gunnar Hult; Hans Kariis; Hans Liwång; Harold Lawson; Jari Hartikainen; Försvarshögskolan; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; military utility; survivability; signature management; systems engineering; camouflage; Low Observable Technology; spectral design; multi-spectral; Försvarssystem; Military Technology;

    Abstract : There is an ongoing duel between military sensor development and developments in signature management. The last decade, with warfare characterized by joint expeditionary operations and asymmetry, has favored sensors. READ MORE

  3. 3. Risk-based ship security analysis : a decision-support approach

    Author : Hans Liwång; Jonas W. Ringsberg; Martin Norsell; Rolf Skjong; Försvarshögskolan; []

    Abstract : The protection of shipping does not come without hazards and threats for military forces, individual civilian ship operators and crews. With particular focus on security threats, this thesis is about how to prepare for such operations without introducing unnecessary risks, i.e., supporting conscious risk-taking related to ship security.

  4. 4. Situation analysis for fighter aircraft combat survivability

    Author : Tina Erlandsson; Lars Niklasson; Göran Falkman; Silvia Coradeschi; Per-Johan Nordlund; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; fighter aircraft; situation analysis; combat survival; decision support; uncertainty; Computer and Systems Science; Datalogi; Teknik; Technology;

    Abstract : Fighter pilots operate in environments where an erroneous decision may have fatal consequences. A tactical decision support system (TDSS) could aid the pilots to analyze the situation and make correct decisions. The TDSS can, for instance, highlight important information and suggest suitable actions. READ MORE

  5. 5. RoPax Ship Collision – a Methodology for Survivability Analysis

    Author : Per Hogström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; non-linear FEA; failure modelling; uncertainty analysis; Crashworthiness; sheet metal failure; ship collision; damage stability;

    Abstract : Throughout the world, ships are continuously being declared as total losses and 10 to 15% of these accidents are collisions between ships. The consequences of a collision are diverse and depend on the ship type, e.g. oil outflow in the case of damaged tankers or loss of stability in damaged passenger ships. READ MORE
