Our Story

I am Brian Smith and welcome to Future Schema – Going Beyond Green. This website will provide you with valuable information linking changes in environment and renewable energy, and its outcome on sustainability.  By focusing on sustainability, this gives me the ability to discern how people and material are going to be effected in the long term, whether it is command and control (C2), the Green Infrastructure or the Gig Infrastructure.

I am a sustainability analyst with a specialty in environment and renewable energy. I have been studying these relationships for 25+ years. I started out as a nuclear strategy and technology analyst.  But as the Cold War closed, I moved into C2 and its impact on environment, population and security. I made the leap forward starting with the NATO/CCMS study on environment and security. This gradually became environment, renewable energy and their impact on sustainability.  Environment and renewable energy variables are critical to describing sustainability and understanding how variables in the Green or Gig Infrastructure systems are going to be impacted.

Sustainability measures the way systems effect infrastructure. Sustainability is a more comprehensive notion than other dependent variables because a lot can interrupt it but little can wipe it out. Once you have increased the ability to sustain a system, you have improved the ability of the infrastructure to protect the elements in that system.  To improve the impact of infrastructure systems, you need to show how the incorporation of environmental and renewable energy systems increase the sustainability of the system of a whole. However, you shouldn’t stop there because while C2, Green or Gig Infrastructure is fine but you want to make investments in systems paying off over time and constantly being reinvested. This is where I aim our infrastructure systems analysis.

As the US strategy has evolved, environment and renewable energy have played an increased role is keeping the US military on top of these situations. By initializing studies on how environmental and renewable energy can be used to help maintain sustainability, I can help to quickly identify and recognize the types and combinations of environment and renewable energy resource that will be appropriate to reach sustainability to continue to succeed in the new entanglements.  The underlying strategy is how to manufacture a way to win with the next generation of infrastructure.
