A constellation of smart devices and enabling technologies are guiding a drastic digital transformation of the future battlefield obliging a reformulation of standard procedures. In this evolving data-rich landscape, efforts are pursued to get acquainted about the implications of an emergent multi-domain dimension in the command and control systems in service.
