    C3 is Command, Control, Communications. C3I is Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence.

      C3; command, control and communications, the I is intelligence. C4 ISTAR, as I first understood it, is Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, Targets and Recce (had to double check) - these things, generally, are important in military activity.

      Edit: sorry, didn't realised the member above had beat me to it.

        All these activities depend on timely and accurate collection and dissemination of information. Getting the right info up or down the chain of command to the people who need it can be critical to success.

        Any metaphor will tear if stretched over too much reality.

          On timely dissemination, this link gives you a download PDF - http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct...55534169,d.d2k

          By Singh of the Indian Air Force, in which he discusses time as 'the 4th dimension of war' in which information/C3 things are the cornerstone of rapid action and causing paralysis in the enemies systems.

            Thanks everyone .

            I did actually know, having had to find out what it meant after buying this book here, but it appears to be used a lot without any explaination to others in the dark.

            Medals all round when I get the chance.
