An ambitious endeavor to bring much-needed sensibility, simplicity, and sophistication back to systems engineering and lay a solid foundation for the software services’ observability, adaptability, controllability, and operability.

The first significant deliverable is the Substrates Project. The Substrates API is an extensible framework for building observability toolkits and instruments that emit events over a circuit of contexts and conduits via currents.

The ultimate endgame of this initiative is to build a generic framework for situation awareness that can be used to integrate far more successfully and simpler human-and-machine communication, coordination, and cooperation.
