It's from the phonetic alphabet. The letter C is spoken as Charlie
The term "Contact" was most widely used in the Vietnam War because that particular war was fought for "body counts." All previous US wars were fought for territory. So, when G…I's went searching (Search and Destroy Missions) for communists in Vietnam, when they found them...or they found each other, the radioman (the officer in charge) would state that he had "contact!". Example: "Whiskey 2, this is Yankee 6...I have CONTACT!" (Gunfire and explosions in the background over the radio). "...Golf Charley 123456...Over!" (Golf Charley would be GC for Grid Coordinates on the map).

Carry on is said after a senior officer enters an area, and it means to continue on with what ever you were working on prior to his/her entering a room or area.
Rotation refers to change in assignment and or location. It is usually used when people have to be sent to less then nice places, like the front lines, or to countries where t…hey can't have their family with them. People are sent to these locations for certain periods of time, such as 18 months rather than a normal 2 year assignment.
The only term I can think of which would be relevant is "Real Time Assessment", which isn't really that common a term. Are you sure you're not thinking of RTO - Radiotelephone… Operator?
'As you were' is said by a superior officer to let the men know they can return to whatever they were doing before he interrupted them. Or it may mean that whatever command …the officer gave was wrong, so they want you to ignore it and continue doing what you were doing before they said it.
