The successful implementation of Service-Oriented development of Distributed Embedded Real-time Systems (DERTS) in the recent years has proved the importance of Service-Orientation over previous paradigms. However, efforts are still needed on systematic Service-Oriented design of DERTS, especially on the modelling of DERTS. The UML standard profile MARTE can be used for modelling of embedded real-time system while UML standard profile SoaML can be used to represent Service-Oriented concepts. Therefore, a thorough investigation of both standard profiles is needed to determine which parts of these profiles are useful for Service-Oriented DERTS development. This paper investigates these profiles in order to highlight the portions of the two profiles and provides some suggestions that can be utilized for Service-Oriented modelling of DERTS. The results of this investigation would be useful in developing a Service-Oriented based meta-model for DERTS.
