Various aspects of designing dependable agent systems for mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) are discussed. MANET provides a bring-your-own-network solution to the problems inherent in communications between rescue workers at the location of a natural disaster, where a conventional networking infrastructure is inoperable. The MANET environment amplifies the usual issues of evaluating the large amount of data the multiagent systems (MAS) generates and coordinates the data gathered and composed from a distributed system. It is stated that network-aware mobile agents that explore the MANET's changing topology can manage a set of service instances by maintaining the location of the service that is capable of handling the demand of MAS.
