Networked S&R systems extend human capabilities beyond temporal and spatial barriers with useful applications in broad areas. Involving the physical-world environments, S&R systems must fulfill the intrinsic real-time requirements of these physical environments. However, communication networks lack of QoS can hamper performance and effectiveness of S&R. Therefore, end system strategies must be deployed to retain effectiveness and to enhance performance of S&R. In this paper, we survey transversal issues pertaining to the development of agile S&R systems to work over a geographically scalable network.
