A Core Architecture for Developing Systems of Systems

Abstract : In a System of Systems (SoS), heterogeneous sys- tems cooperate to achieve a higher purpose. Developing an SoS is complex and difficult, in particular interfacing systems coherently to make them interoperable. In this research, we propose a core architecture to simplify the development of SoS. Our approach is based on a model we call MBA: “Memory Broker Agent,” consisting of agents for encapsulating systems, brokers for handling requests for functionalities and results, and memories for capitalizing and managing knowledge. In this paper we focus on the communication protocol of the proposed architecture, which provides semantic and multilingual interoperability, facilitating the exchange of information and the collaboration between system users. We have built a prototype implementing our approach and applied it to a case study in the health care domain.
