'I enjoyed reading the book. The text gives a thorough and initiated review of current R&D accomplishments within the Swedish Military and Crisis Response domains. I find it refreshing that the human perspective is emphasized systematically by all authors. To me it is clear that we need to develop our methods, tools and technologies to meet future needs in command and control R&D. This publication will be a rich source for the education of officers and operators, and provide a solid basis for further scientific undertakings.' Major General Dennis Gyllensporre, Head of Policy & Plans Department, Swedish Armed Forces Headquarters
