The military needed to sample state meta data from platforms and soldiers to determine mission readiness to execute plans and orders from mission cycle to mission cycle.  State meta data snapshots were sampled during micro-cycles which were relayed to operation centers for aggregation, data fusion display during macro-cycles. Since network bandwidth over radio networks is limited, a mechanism that used the least network resources to get then put data into temporary holding structures e.g., file folders, queues, caches etc accessible regardless of type of access mechanism -- bots, motes, agents, M2M machine to machine protocols or applications or products. The common mechanism was the universal internet TCP/IP heartbeat's reserved frames / time cycles / intervals. This heartbeat ping had heretofore reserved time cycles, intervals in which to move the unit designation <Org_ID> and sample data about resources <Uniform_Resource_Names> <URN> from Lower Tactical to Upper Tactical nets. Metrics and meters describing movement of platforms and resources need to be standard from unit to unit using internet TCP/IP conventions e.g., hop by hop counts for linear, sequential metrics and reference from a survey point to show geo-spatial temporal intensity fluctuations, and time / space (distance) vectors.
