Aloha All,

With the Warcollier Prize going to a different research group I have decided to push forward with the research project that I had submitted for consideration for the prize. The project will be an in depth exploration of S-7 Annex-A and I have selected the project name of “Cartier Mélange”. A very good thing about this project is that what you know about the project will not contaminate the viewer or their ability to participate. Below is the outline of the project and I know it needs a bit of work so I will spend the next week cleaning it up a bit.

For your Consideration

A proposal for a research project using Remote Viewing.

Remote Viewing is recognized as an advanced communication skill used to collect information which the viewer has no ready access to. Separated from the data by either space, time, or other obstacle the viewer engages a specific mental dialog within a collection protocol to perceive and record the data. There is a range of what would be considered easily collected data and other types of data that seem a bit more elusive to collect. Of these elusive datasets, the location of the target of interest is a prime candidate for continued research. The value of being able to identify a specific location to a collection project cannot be overstated.

The main overview of this research effort consists of three (3) areas, Platform, Protocol, and Analysis.


For the purposes of this research effort remote viewers would be recruited; who are graduates of formal training from recognized schools within the community. These would include but would not be limited to CRV, SRV, TRV, HRVG, and ERV. While it is not our intent to seek out practitioners not affiliated with the aforementioned methodologies we will consider individual requests for participation by those recognizing themselves as psychic, dowsers, or other related skill sets. The goal here is to obtain the committed participation of 7-10 personnel to constitute the collection platform. Once the platform has been established an instructional packet will be given to each participant outlining the specific method that is to be employed during the remote viewing process. This method is identified as S-7 Annex-A. S-7 Annex-A is a procedure by which the remote viewer can determine a series of Lines of Bearing (LOBS) from known locations to the unknown location of the target. The platform will be calibrated for analytical purposes in part one (1) of a two (2) part employment of the platform.

Part 1 Platform Calibration

Calibration of the platform will be accomplished using an extensive series of Line of Bearing (LOB) exercises using known locations within the continental United States. Using gazetteer place name abbreviations 200 cities within the United States will be identified and given random notations. These notations will become the locations from which the viewer will determine azimuths of travel to and from; this is commonly referred to as a Check Bearings” test. During the Calibration event each participant will complete 200 iterations of the S-7 Annex-A procedure to facilitate analytic determination of off-sets and error. In the instructional packet the viewer is instructed to key from an orientation of magnetic north. Often viewers have a recognizable deviation that results in an ADD or Subtract from their declared Line of Bearing from one notation to another. Once analytic concerns are resolved on the viewer orientation Part 1 Calibration is complete.

PART 2 Employment

During this phase the platform is considered calibrated and the viewers will work to determine unknown locations using Intersection, Resection, and Single Station Locator models.


For the purposes of this research effort Protocol will be an all encompassing template for all actions. Please refer to the Protocol section later in this proposal.


Analysis of the data provided by the platform will be fairly complex but not overly so. IAW the protocol the analyst will receive the raw directional data and begin a process of validating the LOBs. This is a process that certifies the vector of directional data in reference to a 360 degree compass/protractor measurement device or appropriate computer software. Once the vector has been determined it will be plotted on a computerized system using the latest topographic mapping software. Lines of bearing will be plotted, Cuts will be determined and fixes will be determined. A Cut is where there is an intersection of two (2) certified lines of bearing. A fix is where there is a triangle formed on the map by three (3) certified lines of bearing. If a fix is obtained the analyst will determine the area of the fix, and determine the Steiner point within that fix area. Next the analyst will convert the area from a triangle to a circle with its center at the Steiner point and provide an elliptical area of probability stated in Square Nautical Miles. The analyst then completes an error report which will include the specific offset or error by LOB. The Analyst will use standard practices of plotting and error identification/correction as outlined in Chapter 8 Plotting and Analysis procedures and techniques in FM 34-40-9 Direction Finding Operations. While the FM is not an exact match to the process employed by remote viewers it is the closest theoretically to our process. It is believed that determining direction is a magnetic sense.

Interim Summary

It is the intent of this research effort to investigate whether or not remote viewers can determine direction in a non-local modality. If the viewer can collect directional information along with the other types of sensory information known to be collectable then the S-7 Annex-A procedure becomes a valuable tool for the collection platform.

The Protocol Template

This research effort will function from within a managed protocol. Given the scope of this research there are several areas of concern to the protocol manager. The project will observe a strict compartmentalization of its activities. At no time will Platform viewers participating in the research effort have project related contact with the Targeteer. The Targeteer will be the key person responsible for the target selection process that will feed the Platform. All Platform tasking will be in the form of digital notifications posted on the project website. There will be a necessary disclosure of limited data to the analyst but likewise the analyst will be compartmentalized from the Platform. The Platform will report its results to the Analyst in a digital message format to a drop box on the website serviced solely by the Analyst. Analytic reports will be published to an area on the website for a mathematics/statistical review by a qualified academic representative. At no time will the academic representative be exposed to raw Platform data, target locations, or identities of Platform members. Upon completion of the collection activities of the project, the project manager in collaboration with the Targeteer, Analyst, and the Academic Representative will complete a report of the project results.

Protocol discipline will insure that the Platform remains double-blind to the source locations from which they will produce location data. The sole interface for the Platform will be the Project website. The website will be a secured site not open to the public but access will be provided to a designated 3rd party representative if desired to monitor progress independently. No data that could compromise the protocol will be hosted on the website. All working papers used by the Targeteer and the Analyst will be safeguarded and included along with all raw Platform data in the final report. Hard drives used by the Targeteer and the Analyst will be password secured and stored in a Category II container when not being used. Access to the container will be limited to the Project Manager only. All Platform members, Targeteers, Analysts, and other personnel related to the project will maintain activity logs highlighting dates and times of project related activity.


In Part 1 of the Platform Calibration operations there will be a single person performing the duties of the Targeteer. The Targeteer assembles all the necessary materials from which to facilitate tasking the Platform. Actions of the Targeteer are compartmented from all other actions of the research effort. Initially there is a requirement for the Targeteer to assemble a list of 200 United States cities. These will be selected at random from a formatted gazetteer and 200 of the place name abbreviations will be collected and each re-notated with a unique random 4 digit identifier IE “0625”. Once that has been accomplished the Targeteer will produce a list containing only these new identifiers. The key containing the city abbreviation and its re-notated identifier will be secured IAW the instructions of the protocol manager. The Targeteer will produce a map template in the selected mapping software with all re-noted identifiers plotted and record at a minimum the 12 digit UTM grid coordinates of each location. Once this has been completed the Targeteer will begin a process of random paring of two (2) identifiers from the list of 200. This random process will continue until two hundred (200) sets of two (2) identifiers have been assembled in a new list which becomes the Check Bearings Tasking package. At this time the Targeteer is ready to task the Platform for calibration.

In Part 2 Employment the Targeteer selects fifty (50) random locations in the United States that are isolated and not in cities. The Targeteer will collect the UTM 12 digit grid coordinates for each point and re-notate the point with a random 4 letter identifier IE “PLMY”. The Targeteer will then create a list of all these points and plot them using the selected mapping software. The key containing the UTM grids and its re-notation code will be secured IAW instructions of the protocol manager. The list of fifty (50) 4-letter identifiers will each be randomly pared with four (4) 4-digit identifiers randomly selected from the list of two hundred (200) from the Part 1 Calibration listing. This will constitute the tasking list for Part 2 Employment.

The Targeteer in Tasking for Part 1 and 2

The Targeteer will never task more than one pair of target identifiers to the Platform at a time in Part 1 Calibration.

The following is a Platform tasking scenario for Part 1 Calibration.

The Targeteer publishes a Tasker notification to the Platform. The notification will simply provide a case notation (Target ID) IE “2152-6110”. It would be understood by the Platform that S-7 Annex-A would be employed to determine the Azimuth/LOB between the two (2) identifiers listed in the case note. After the Platform has reported in all results to the Analyst the Targeteer will publish an analyst’s notification of the magnetic azimuth between the two (2) points. The analyst can then determine the accuracy of the Platform LOBs and database the results.

The following is a Platform tasking scenario for Part 2 Employment.

The Targeteer publishes a Tasker notification to the Platform. The notification will simply provide a case notation (Target ID) IE “HXIQ” and four (4) additional coded groups of identifiers IE “5329/7005/1696/8310”. It would be understood by the Platform that S-7 Annex-A should be employed to determine the Azimuth/LOB from each of the 4-digit identifiers to the 4-letter identifier. After all results have been reported to the analyst the Targeteer will send the Analyst the UTM grid coordinates for each identifier so that the analyst can plot the results and complete the reports needed. At this time the Analyst is considered compartmentalized. This is a different scenario than in part 1 to facilitate determining the location of the target using Intersection. While results from Part 1 will validate proof of concept, results from Part 2 will be used to estimate its applicability for use in remote viewing.

Analysis Expanded

The analyst will be required to function in a math intensive environment. Accurate representations of LOBs produced by the Platform must be inputted into the selected mapping software and plotted without error. Analysis to determine a variety of known error types when plotting magnetic data on grid maps must be exact. The analyst will be required to determine both standard and non-standard deviation error for each Platform member. The analytic method will be standardized so that each LOB is handled in exactly the same way. All data handled by the Analyst will be notated in the Project Analysis Log Journal.

About S-7 Annex-A

The instructional block for the S-7 Annex-A procedure exceeds not only the scope but the size limitations for this proposal. Information on S-7 Annex A will be provided at any point requested during the project. Of interest it is a stand-alone activity that does not require the Viewer to engage in a full on session. Its primary engine is the intent and spatial orientation capacity of the viewer within the structure of the protocol. In layman’s terms the viewer understands that there are certain facts presented to them for resolution. The viewer understands that there is an unknown location that must be found. In the procedure the viewer is required to displace a portion of their consciousness to that location of interest and withdraw. They are then presented with an encrypted reference (Identifier) for another location that is known. The viewer understands that they must displace a portion of their consciousness to this new location and in an instant make a directional determination from that location to the previous location which is unknown. The viewer represents this directional sense in a directional ideogram which is then processed for analysis. While a relative easy task for the viewer who has a good understanding of the process, the Analyst carries the burden of determining how the viewer senses direction, determines issues of error and commits to plotting of the data.

Aloha All,

With the Warcollier Prize going to a different research group I have decided to push forward with the research project that I had submitted for consideration for the prize. The project will be an in depth exploration of S-7 Annex-A and I have selected the project name of “Cartier Mélange”.


Cartier Melange. An interesting name for a project, and knowing Glenn there is a hidden meaning in those words. I have not spoken to Glenn about this, but I’ve been thinking about it on my own, trying to see if I can solve the riddle.

Cartier, of course, is a luxury French jeweler and watch manufacturer.
And Melange is defined as a mixture of incongruous elements, like an agglomerate or medley of things.

So the term Cartier Melange could evoke an assortment or potpourri of jewel encrusted items of great value. Elegant on the surface, but Glenn’s mind works on deeper levels.

Did you know that Jacques Cartier was a French explorer and navigator who led expeditions to Canada in the 1500’s? Cartier used navigational aids that measured the angle of stars or the sun to calculate location at sea. (The Cartier Melange Project will be an effort to prove the ability of remote viewers to determine location.)

There are other levels of hidden meaning within the phrase. A definition of mélange in one dictionary used this as an example: “A building crowned with a mélange of antennae and satellite dishes.” Interesting, given Glenn’s background in the ASA and NSA, as well as his current occupation.

Melange can also refer to the name of a fictional drug the Dune science fiction novels by Frank Herbert. The drug improves life span and awareness, and can unlock prescience.

A search for the term “Cartier Melange” produced no results. Nowhere in public have the two words been joined into a meaningful phrase. I wondered if there was a new $50,000 diamond studded watch called, “The Cartier Melange,” but it is not to be found.

I suspect – and this is only a hunch, with no information to back it up- that certain people in the intelligence community, say retired Special Forces Intel guys or NSA spooks, will see the term and recognize a formerly top secret code. Maybe if Glenn had published or utter the term Cartier Melange 20 years ago he would just be getting out prison. Think Erminmink.

Cartier Melange is an excellent name for Glenn’s project. Someday Glenn might tell me how he came up with it. There is always more going on at HRVG than meets the eye.

As you say Judging from the website below, the word means a mix of different kind things, in this respect of different kinds of art. “Ruby Lane has a mélange of vintage art for the person who loves the art of the past….”

Cartier Melange…a mix of old Cartier watches? God only knows the meaning, or in this case Glenn only knows. Notice that Glenn has two more letters in his name than God. Teh he he.

What does "melange" mean? - Yahoo! Answers
Best Answer: It means a mixture, originally from French. It's also the proper name of The Spice which is the focal point of the famous SF series, Dune.

As with most projects we do at Hrvg we have always named them to give a bit more identity and familiarity to those working the project. This project I hope will make a difference in what we think we know about remote viewing. It is an exploration on whether the viewer can actually navigate the ocean of consciousness. Jacques Cartier was my 24th distant grandfather. We discovered this in Debra’s work on my family tree. It seemed appropriate due to the Navigation theme of the project with a slight nod to René Descartes and his system of Cartesian Coordinates which is also used in S-7 Annex-A.

In the recent panel discussion at the IRVA conference Jim Channon reminded us all on the need for mascots and icons. Our NIMO icon has long been a talisman of familiarity to the guild and Cartier Mélange will surely spawn an equally impressive logo icon to Brand the project. These are the types of things humans need to feel a sense of purpose and belonging. If successful those in the Cartier Mélange Platform will garner the prestige of being the best group of viewers to rise since MJ001.

The meaning of Mélange is much more intricate as it is the surface of a field being fed by so many bubbles within the consciousness. Sorta like a bowl of Alphabet Soup where the letters float to the surface and began to become coherent under the observing gaze of the viewer.

The Cartier Mélange Platform will be 7 viewers who can make a difference. Once the call for volunteers goes out don’t hesitate. All other project positions pale in comparison to the Navigators…

Yes but won't the success of such a project depend on the viewers track record/ability? As in music, there are people who can hammer out a tune like Chop Sticks" on the piano, others who can make a living playing in the piano bars and others, as few as there, are who will play in concert halls. It sounds like the Seven who will be in the Navigators will have to be concert hall quality.

Aloha Robert,

Don’t underestimate my ability to create the dynamic from which the Navigators will function. At Hrvg we always train and rehearse. It is far more important that the viewer wants to be there. The project activities will give you the exact skills we need. Give me a willing mind any day over a Pedigreed Prima Dona.

I need to read over this thread this weekend. I really want to participate in this one because of the S-7
