AARMS – Academic and Applied Research in Military and Public Management Science 2022-11-30T11:49:05+01:00 Orbók Ákos Open Journal Systems <p>As the name of the journal shows, its goal is to publish research results, peer-reviewed studies of high standard in English in the field of military science and military technology. Recent changes in the structure of the university have called for the renewal of the publication, allowing for publishing scientific results in other disciplines such as public administration as well as law enforcement.</p> Recommendations for Safety-Conscious Smart Device Use by Military Professionals 2022-01-07T11:59:23+01:00 Koller Marco <p>Security-conscious behaviour is of paramount importance, both in the field of information security and in various public institutions. Thus, in the public administration, especially in the various armed bodies, the training of personnel in this direction is of strategic importance, as a person with low security awareness can endanger the security of the entire organisation. Human security issues may even have national security or intelligence relevance.</p> 2022-11-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Koller Marco International Good Practices in the Activities of Fire and Disaster Management Organisations 2021-11-23T09:54:39+01:00 Pántya Péter <p>All over the world, different countries protect themselves, and their citizens from the effects of fires and accidents with the help of their fire and disaster management services. While executing firefighting or technical rescue and disaster relief tasks, these services use several methods and technical solutions during intervention. The aim is to find the best practices and solutions in the field of technical equipment, organisation and method. The applied methods are the analysis of international publications, papers from the previous years and the author’s own domestic and international experiences. The good solutions found in this research that raise the effectiveness and the safety of the fire services (especially in Hungary) are demonstrated in this paper.</p> 2022-11-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Pántya Péter Application of Artificial Intelligence in Military Operations Planning 2022-01-04T13:16:52+01:00 Fazekas Ferenc <p>The military operations planning is one of the major functions of military staffs. The increasing complexity of the contemporary operating environment requires new approach to the understanding of the situation and realisation of a viable plan. The aim of this paper is to scrutinise the potential usage of future Artificial Intelligence tools in the process of military operations planning. The main question is whether Artificial Intelligence in its current state can be applied in military operations planning. To answer this question the paper provides a short overview of military operations planning, a summary of military-related Artificial Intelligence research and existing solutions, then identify criteria and field of application for future Artificial Intelligence-driven tools. Analysing the topic gives some insight into this possible way of increasing the effectiveness of the planning groups, thus contributes to finding more effective solutions for emerging complex and comprehensive problems.</p> 2022-11-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Fazekas Ferenc Experience of the Krk LNG Terminal’s Operation in Croatia Over the Past Year 2022-06-02T09:08:49+02:00 Török Virág <p>The PCI project in Krk was significant – since it was on a number of strategic priority lists for Croatia and the EU. The projections identified target markets for Croatian LNG in 8 countries, with an estimated combined annual gas demand of 37 billion cubic metres. The terminal on Krk was commissioned in January 2021 and has since been operating as a floating offshore storage and regasification facility. The gas taken up and regasified is fed into the Croatian national transmission network, which is interconnected with Hungary and other EU and non-EU member states. In the year of commissioning, a new complementary service was already added to the package of capabilities of the terminal, which allows for small-scale natural gas refuelling. The terminal has a number of positive benefits beyond the obvious improvement of the regional security of supply. These include the efficient integration of the North-South Gas Corridor into the regional gas market and the enhancement of market opportunities for Central and Southeast European operators and the competitiveness of the region. The aim of this presentation is to assess the one-year operation of the terminal in terms of gas supply and to present the energy future of the region.</p> 2022-11-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Török Virág Women’s Role in the Tunisian Process of Democratisation 2022-08-26T14:39:04+02:00 Sipos Xénia Zsuzsanna <p>The significant role of women in all fields of the Tunisian society has been decisive since the country’s struggle for independence from the colonial power, France, and during the state-building process of the post-colonial period. Furthermore, the events of and after the Arab Spring brought about a more active role for women’s rights activists, which resulted in a widespread debate on gender equality. However, despite the efforts of the Tunisian Government to ensure protection against the discrimination of women, the growing socioeconomic crisis, amplified by the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, brought to the surface the difficulties of vulnerable groups, including women. Women engaged in rural activities were more at risk of facing deteriorating circumstances. In this context, the current study examines the relationship between the process of democratisation and the role women can play in the shaping of the political field and vice versa. In addition to applying statistical indicators, the article verifies the main theses of the research in the empirical part due to the incorporation of qualitative data collected from interviews conducted with five representatives/activists of local Tunisian NGOs. Although international relations themselves remain strongly gendered, the mobilisation of women’s rights activists can contribute to overwriting traditional masculine and feminine roles in public versus private spheres, and thus can result in a more gender-friendly environment.</p> 2022-11-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Sipos Xénia Zsuzsanna Johnson and Vietnam: Decision Making during Operation Rolling Thunder 2022-07-19T06:36:34+02:00 Ondrék József <p>The name of Lyndon Baines Johnson, 36th President of the United States, has practically been tied together with the Vietnam War, which raged on during the entirety of his presidency. The Johnson Presidency could have been remembered after the numerous and admirable domestic policy steps he took, yet it is Vietnam, which overshadows his historical legacy. Both the Gulf of Tonkin Incident and the longest campaign of the Vietnam War, Operation Rolling Thunder took place during his terms in office. This latter was harshly criticised by his peers, especially from military leadership circles, thus it is worth re-examining this period of the war using now publicly available sources. This article aims to examine how President Johnson and his inner circle of advisors made their decisions during the period in question.</p> 2022-11-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Ondrék József Improving the Kosovo Innovation Ecosystem: Exploration before Exploitation 2022-07-31T09:22:25+02:00 Dedaj Zef Makó Csaba NOSRATABADI Saeed <p>Open innovation enables the circulation of knowledge among businesses in an innovation ecosystem and facilitates the innovation processes. However, there are many businesses operating in the innovation ecosystem in Kosovo that are not yet familiar with the mechanism of innovative linkages consequently they cannot benefit from it. Therefore, the present study tried to provide a clear picture of how to implement open innovation and its requirements and ultimately the benefits of implementing innovation for them by studying the case study of two large and successful companies in implementing open innovation in Kosovo. Findings disclosed investing in research and development is the source of innovation. Innovation is manifested in three categories of technological innovation, market innovation, and product innovation. Findings revealed that companies are required new equipment and skilled workforces to successfully implement innovation. Innovation in organizations results in improving their position in global markets as well as financial benefits.</p> 2022-11-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Dedaj Zef, Makó Csaba, NOSRATABADI Saeed
