The art and science of multisensor data fusion has emerged as the foundation for the development of next generation net-centric decision support systems, including horizontal fusion systems. These decision support systems require the coordination of service-oriented sensors and fusion components. Distributed coordination-based architectures provide a process-to-process communications infrastructure that supports horizontal fusion services. In this paper we discuss architectural considerations for distributed service-oriented horizontal fusion including distributed coordination-based architectures, service access, data transformation, adaption, and end-to-end visualization.
