We use Value Sensitive Design for the development of an ethical framework for autonomous systems in Defence in the Australian context. Two novel empirical data gathering methods are deployed for mining stakeholder's values, namely Group Decision Room (GDR) and Participatory Value Evaluation (PVE). GDR findings reveal a general concern for...

Situational awareness of armed forces acting in an urban environment is a key factor determining the success of military operations. In 2021 the European Defence Agency established the project on Wireless Sensor Networks for Urban Local Areas Surveillance. The main goal of the project is to assess how the situational awareness in an urban...

An important durability question is whether military off-road vehicles can cope with the fatigue damage from extreme random, complex, and non-stationary loads for the design life of up to 30 years. An accurate life cycle fatigue damage estimation is essential for military off-road vehicles as the lives of military personnel can depend on a...

In the military field, detailed simulation models are often used to get insight in the consequences of choices regarding the composition of a force and the extent to which it can be kept deployable. With detailed models, the main idea is to capture all real-world complexity relevant for decision-making processes. However, detailed models tend to...
