The project aims at obtaining high integrity and goal orientation of distributed dynamic systems, which may include multiple wireless sensors and mobile robots, as well as humans. The technology developed is based on the ideology of gestalt, where the whole is considered first, dominating over parts and dynamically defining their role and even existence in the context of changing goals and states of environment. Spatial mission scenarios, which may be created on the fly, are represented in a compact non-agents form collectively executed by the intelligent network of interpreters embedded into sensitive points of the system to be managed. The approach allows us to provide effective asymmetric runtime solutions to complex asymmetric problems and fulfill objectives in unpredictable environments, paving the way to massive robotization of advanced civil and military systems. The paper covers a broad spectrum of topics from philosophy and ideology to system management, to novel distributed control technology and its implementation, and to a variety of important applications. The paradigm described may be considered as the first implementation of the idea of gestalt to management of open distributed systems, as well as the first globally programmable universal super-machine dynamically covering distributed worlds and operating with both information and matter without any central resources.
