This paper is devoted to describing the broad range of application domains which implement many of the coordination strategies and techniques from the field of multi-agent systems. The domains include defense, transportation, health care, telecommunication and e-business, emergency management, etc. The paper describes the diversity of the applications in which multi-agent coordination techniques have been applied to overcome the challenges or obstacles that have existed with regard to performance, interoperability and/or scalability. While the number of application domains is steadily increasing, the intent of this paper is to provide a small sampling of domains which are applying coordination techniques to build intelligent systems. This paper will also describe an emerging and important problem domain which requires the coordination among many entities across the civil-military boundary, and can benefit from multi-agent coordination techniques.
