“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” Richard Buckminster Fuller 

Heart Beacon Cycle: reuse of DARPA system of systems best practice used to derive cyclic, iterative procedures formed into a a procedural template framework. This procedural template framework is based on a well known DoD situation understanding, awareness system as seen on TV on the on History, Discovery Channel originally named The Balkans Digitization Program then "Blue Force Tracker / Joint Blue Force Situational Awareness JBFSA and more recently, Joint Battle Command or JBC. This system is known as the Communications - Electronics Command's "Greatest Invention" Page 65. The Heart Beacon Cycle is an improved and enhanced procedural template derived from this military system as a swords to plowshare global project with novel metric, meter memes describing geo-spatial temporal intensity describing for example, ecological disasters and project impacts displayed on Dymaxion map appliqué overlay views. The synchronous, reliable, predicable cyclical update of state meta data snapshots across a systems of systems, network of networks is extremely flexible, powerful and adaptable across many use cases.  Internet of Everthing quotes: "We will gain the ability to literally hear our world's “heartbeat". "The Internet of Everything will transform battlefield data improving our ability to plan, analyze, manage, and make intelligent decisions actionable." 

The Heart Beacon Cycle time - space meter / appliqué overlay: a systemic adaptive, iterative, procedural template framework used as a guide, links pointing to detailed treatises in forming agile, ad hoc federated groups synchronized in time-space for common goals using equitable, consistent metrics, meters news-casted, viewed on geo-spatial appliqué overlays showing spatial - temporal intensity sync deltas i.e. Dymaxion map views 

Purpose: improve systemic, sustainable solutions through cyclic, reliable, predicable signaling, telemetry, news-casting of sync delta updates across systems of systems, network of networks defining equitable metrics, meters for trade arbitrage among federated, autonomous trade groups. 

FOCUS STATEMENT: The DoD / NATO's most widely used situation awareness system should be used as a procedural template guide describing common procedures and shared components / building blocks to achieve consensus among diverse groups using diverse technologies. Since the Heart Beacon Cycle is a document -- a template, technology (ETHEREUM / RTI DDS, CITRIX etc.,) completes it by providing transport, signaling, telemetry among widely distributed, autonomous trade federation groups.



Ethereum, as a system built around Bitcoin, the TERRA Trade Reference Currency, Ethereum, and Battlefield Digitization commercialized (Heart Beacon Cycle) all involve maintaining globally distributed ledgers. Battlefield Digitization best practice provides procedural templates describing as guides, the when, where, how and how often systemically among a systems of systems promoting synergy, synchronicity.  The TERRA and the HBC as documents / templates require the signaling / transport of Ethereum and Etherum is improved referring to the HBC and the TERRA to achieve consensus.
