Currently, there is no clear-cut approach or design methodology available for designing distributed adaptive observation systems, partly due to the necessity to combine elements and approaches from several technological and scientific communities. Recently, an effort was made addressing this issue in an integrated manner, resulting in the definition of a model for Networked Adaptive Interactive Hybrid Systems, or NAIHS. However, so far its use was only demonstrated to a limited extent. This paper presents the application of the NAIHS model to design and implement four different prototypical fusion systems to show the applicability and relevance of the model's concepts. © 2011 ISIF
