SECURITY-LINK brings together a unique consortium from Linköping University (LiU) and the Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI), together with complementary expertise from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Chalmers University of Technology. SECURITY-LINK covers the entire range of technical domain priorities listed in the VINNOVA NRA Security report: (i) communications, (ii) signal and information technologies, (iii) artificial intelligence and decision support, (iv) information security technologies and (v) computing technologies. SECURITY-LINK has extensive research expertise, including biological/chemical sensors,radar and optical sensors, sensor networks, navigation and positioning techniques, robust wireless communications, emergency and crisis management, and risk analysis. SECURITY-LINK is a platform for strategic, cross-disciplinary research, where the vision is to create a world-leading and nationally unexcelled research center in emergency and crisis management, security, and infrastructure protection.
Application to the strategic research area of Security and emergency management (1 of 20 areas) Seven applications in total, and two were granted. Faculty funding for Security Link tentatively 7MSEK/year (of 1315 MSEK/year in total for the call) Partners: LiU 53%, FOI 34%,KTH 10%,Chalmers 3% The other center is CNDS (center for natural disaster science) at UU.

Current Projects of the Consortium 4 excellence centers (Vinnova, VR, SSF), 4 of 5 projects in the first call of Swedish security research program in 14 EU-SECURITY projects (65 MSEK, 3.6% of the total budget in FP7:SEC.1). Three as coordinators, the others as partners. 15 MSB/KBM projects (44 MSEK).
Research themes Secure and robust wireless communications. Advanced sensors and detectors. Sensor and information fusion. Decision support and coordination for emergency and crisis response. Risk analysis and ethics of crisis management.
Secure and robust wireless communication Enabler for emergency management and infrastructure protection Research focus: technology for robust communication links and networks Applications: wireless sensor networks for infrastructure and links for rescue teams Riots in Gothenburg 2001, where activists disrupted police radio communication
Sensors and detectors New or improved sensors for detection of CBE substances Surveillance sensors Radar sensing through obstacles RF Sensor for Face Recognition Behind Masking
Sensor and information fusion GPS support and backup for robust transportation systems Sensor networks Dynamic mapping for pre- and post-crisis management Surveillance of infrastructure
