Smart and Resilient Total Defence

We use our cross-sectoral knowledge to build resilience – every day, all year

We care about a society where we as individuals, public activities, companies and non-profit organizations together build up what is our everyday life. For us, resilience is broader than the traditional defence system. It is also about preparedness, training, technology development and creating a total defence collaboration to protect society’s key assets.

At Combitech we combining our solid experience within the defence and manufacturing sectors, we contribute to society by enabling industries, communities, and the total defence system to withstand the challenges of tomorrow.

The Total Defence Report

Combitech conducts an annual survey to see how decision-makers in the business sector view their role in total defence. The report refers to Swedish society, but some insights are interesting from a Nordic perspective. The aim is to highlight the important role of companies and their ability to contribute to a modern and resilient society.

The 2023 survey showed that only 10 percent are adequately prepared, but 70 percent want to learn more. The commitment is there, how do we take advantage of it?

Every second decision-maker in the survey believes that it is important to contribute to total defence, while 77 percent state that there is a lack of clarity as to how to do so. There is great potential here and we need to create the conditions and act now!

Total Defence Day

At the Total Defence Day, we gather critical societal functions to build resilience together. We've been doing this over the years (2019, 2020, 2022 and 2024) which means that we can see and talk about the change that has taken place within total defence, both through in-depth insights and collaboration, but also due to the global situation. Take some time to recap some of the previous discussions and insights.

Build insights through practice

How do businesses work together to prioritise resources and find solutions to disruptions, crises and difficult situations? What happens in a situation where societal functions are strained and threatened? To succeed, you need to work together, but you also need to practice together. We have developed the Total Defence Game - a physical map game that creates participation, clarity and dialogue. 

The total defense game can be played in both larger and smaller contexts, with several activities present or specific to one activity. 

It makes me proud and hopeful that more and more people want to be involved in building resilience and strengthening our communities and businesses, which is more important than ever.
