The Internet of Things (IoT) describes the use of connected sensors and actuators to control and monitor an environment, the things that move within it and the people that act within it. The Internet of Military Things (IoMT) uses multiple sensors deployed across various domains to acquire full situational awareness and control over diverse conflict zones and battle areas. Advanced military forces have invested in command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems and infrastructure to collect, analyse and disseminate data. C4ISR systems provide situational awareness, while command and control systems (C2) allow those connected to communicate and share information. IoMT works to bring all this information together into a single ecosystem.
