C4 is rooted in technology while M4IS2 is rooted in humanity.
C4 stands for command & control, communications, and computing. Generally the term used is C4I, adding intelligence, and the 1990’s C4I2, adding interoperability. All focuses on technology.
M4IS2 stands for Multinational, Multiagency, Multidisciplinary, Multidomain Information-Sharing & Sense-Making.

My must current work on where I wish to go is below.
