Multi-vehicle applications rely on the dynamic allocation of resources such as vehicles, CPUs, bandwidth and storage, and must exhibit robustness to failures or to service degradation in general. The paper presents a model for such applications, called the Service Network Model (SNM). The entities of this model are services and service providers. Services are defined by standard names and interfaces, and are described by attributes. Service providers export services with certain quality of service guarantees. They may also need to import services from other providers. An application is modeled as a directed graph, where nodes represent service providers and edges represent services imported by the source node and exported by the destination node.
