In SET 2019 some Windward Hams demonstrated networking functions of APRS
and geographical situational awareness, not of an enemy's location, but of road obstructions.
Some in EARC built an inexpensive cable to utilize APRS between an HT and their Android phones for APRS.

Looks like the military is finding this same capability useful.
