TL;DR: In this article, a concept called Military Utility is proposed for the study of the use of technology in military operations, which is derived through conceptual analysis and is based on related concepts used in social sciences, the military domain and Systems Engineering.
Abstract: A concept called Military Utility is proposed for the study of the use of technology in military operations. The proposed concept includes a three-level structure representing key features and their detailed components. On basic level the Military Utility of a technical system, to a military actor, in a specific context, is a compound measure of the military effectiveness, of the assessed technical system's suitability to the military capability system and of the affordability. The concept is derived through conceptual analysis and is based on related concepts used in social sciences, the military domain and Systems Engineering. It is argued that the concept has qualitative explanatory powers and can support military decision-making regarding technology in forecasts, defense planning, development, utilization and the lessons learned process. The suggested concept is expected to contribute to the development of the science of Military-Technology and to be found useful to actors related to defense.

TL;DR: This study provides a multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) model so that the confidence interval of fuzzy numbers describes the comparison in pairs whose degree is not determined before the comparison.
Abstract: The military decision-making process is a proven analytical process for designing operations, troops’ movements, logistics or air defense planning. The hybrid FAHP-MABAC model is tested for obtaining/selecting the results for an optimal firing position of the guided anti-tank missile battery (GAMB).This study provides a multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) model so that the confidence interval of fuzzy numbers describes the comparison in pairs whose degree is not determined before the comparison. By using mathematical expressions the confidence interval is brought into direct connection with the degree of certainty of decision-makers/expert of the comparison performed. In the group decision-making, the confidence intervals differ depending on the decision-maker/expert’s opinion. Finally the sensitivity analysis is used to determine how sensitive a decision model is. The suggested model is expected to contribute to the development of the science of military-operations as well as to prove itself useful to the actors related to defense.
