To maintain their operational superiority in contested physical, cyber and electromagnetic environments, military forces have engaged in deep digital transformation processes. Data is the lifeblood of efficient decision-making in modern warfare: processed into valuable information, it enables military commanders to take faster and informed decisions by leveraging a constantly updated vision of the battlefield. Nevertheless, a number of technical, operational and human challenges still face the use of data in Command and Control (C2) systems at the collection, processing, storage and transmission stages.
