Claim of US Patent No. 10,599,511

1. A system comprising:two control centers communicably coupled over a network; and
at least one sub-network arranged orthogonal to the network, the sub-network communicably coupling each of the control centers to each of:
a sensor receiving sensed data; and
a controller controlling one or more operations based on the sensed data;
wherein the sensor and controller are communicably coupled together over the at least one orthogonal sub-network; and
an archive storing as non-transitory computer readable media:
a configuration table storing configuration data for each of the control centers, sensor, controller, and archive, wherein the configuration data includes a preferred error correction code, and at least one preferred error correction procedure; and
a real-time time log of events storing actions performed by the control centers, sensor, controller, and archive.
