The military sense seems to be just the plain sense of juxtaposing or locating together, encouraged by soldiers' fondness for overly-complicated terms (at least in movies). It's also weakened by the fact that the definition seems to use the military term unit very loosely.

Can someone find citations which show the military use to be somehow different? Michael Z. 2009-06-20 17:53 z

RHU specifically mentions military units among entities that might be co-located or colocated. I'd just move the sense to or expand the wording at co-location. Or you could let this run its course. DCDuring TALK 19:02, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Ah, thank you: different word with its own etymology. I'll give that a try and see if anyone cries foul. Michael Z. 2009-06-20 20:53 z

Computing sense colocation, not collocation[edit]

I think the computing sense is wrong. Should be colocation with one L, i.e. location together. Equinox 20:09, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
