In this paper multi-agents systems are presented as a new design paradigm that allows an efficient use of multiprocessor architectures and distributed systems architectures currently widely available and preferred. Moreover, in our case, multiagent systems will bring the concepts of artificial intelligence, collaboration principles, autonomy, proactive behavior and communications possibility. Adopting a multiagent approach on spherical array sensors for both sources detection and spatial filtering will provide several issues: simultaneous several signals acquisition, effective spatial filttering, optimal performance under the imposed environment circumstances and prompt reaction and treatment.
