Smart sensors are critical components in distributed integrated systems and architectures. Continually improving sensors and increased requirements for surveillance have created end-to-end design and implementation challenges. The concurrent requirement to improve information sharing across organizations, in effect to network and share sensors, creates additional challenges. Distributing and managing the computational processing, end-to-end, in an implementation architecture poses new design, standardization, and interoperability challenges. With the emphasis on "smart," sensor-embedded processing is essential in unattended and high-performance applications and architectures. Distributed intelligent multimedia streaming and annotation technologies create opportunities to efficiently process, communicate, and dynamically adapt to mission requirements. This paper examines requirements drivers for smart sensor designs and explores implications for end-to-end architecture and sensor management. Additionally, it considers the need for standardization as an important enabler of networked capability, information assurance, and acquisition affordability.
