The Combat Cloud: Enabling Multidomain Command and Control across the Range of Military Operations
While the inherent advantages of the combat cloud are many, the challenges that surround its successful development and incorporation into modern warfare are equally numerous, including interoperability and security issues and ensuring decentralized execution at the tactical and operational levels. Despite these challenges, the ubiquitous nature of data will not allow arbitrary lines to be drawn between domains in the future, and command and control must no longer be confined by such terms. Going forward, information must be generated, synthesized, shared, and accessible by all, for all, and through all domains; the combat cloud is the instrument to do so.
