There's an increasing trend toward interconnected systems of systems (SoS) that provide capabilities not available in a single system. One emerging approach for engineering software-intensive systems of systems is service-oriented architecture (SOA); however, it's likely that future new implementation technologies will appear as SoS requirements change and become more demanding. The purpose of this article is to present fundamental service-oriented principles that can be used for engineering SoS regardless of the implementation technologies, aspects of service orientation that need to advance to support SoS engineering, and some thoughts on what a service-oriented SoS engineering approach would look like.
