Assuring the survivability of distributed multiagent systems in a stressful environment is an extremely challenging prospect. Such assurance is nonetheless critical to enable widespread, confident deployment of DMASs. The DARPA UltraLog program has developed a methodology for developing, testing, and deploying a DMAS that supports assured survivability on a given distributed military logistics application. This approach has potential general applicability for broad classes of DMASs.
