The paper deals with the design and development f a coalition infrastructure. Generally, this infrastructure’s nature is distributed, heterogeneous, and dynamic. Therefore, new advanced technologies are required. MultiAgent Systems (MASs) seem to be a good candidate and a promising approach. For instance, MASs could provide an insight into what aspects of the coalition should be delegated, how these aspects should evolve, and what should be the effect of specific changes. This research is part of the IC2MAS project that takes advantages of several research domains, including software agents, mobility, and ontology.
