Sambandssystem 9000 ur ett användarperspektiv: Transkript av ett vittnesseminarium vid Tekniska museet i Stockholm den 13 mars 2008
2008 (Swedish)Report (Other scientific)
The witness seminar “Sambandssystem 9000 ur ett användarperspektiv” [Communication System 9000 from A User Perspective] was held at The National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm on 13 March 2008 and was led by Göran Kihlström. Different aspects of the Swedish Army’s Sambandssystem 9000 were discussed at the seminar, which covered a period from the 1960s to the 1990s. The relationship between the Army and the Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) in the procurement process was discussed, as was the prolonged testing of the equipment involved. Another matter that was discussed at length was the cooperation between the Norwegian firm STK (now Thales) and FMV, and STK’s production of the communications equipment. Earlier systems for Army communication were also dealt with by the participants. The seminar pointed out that the history of the Swedish Army’s communications systems contains successful development, as well as projects that never became operational systems. The reasons for the failures and the successes alike, were found to be a combination of flawed technology and administrative mistakes. One such failed development was the ATLE-IS project which was dropped in the late 1990s. One factor that was identified as having been common for all the projects during this period was that they were all very long in the making, and that they seem to have functioned as a kind of budget regulator. When money was scarce less was put into the development of the communications systems and vice versa.
