Efficient deployment has been identified as one of the main problems for the acceptance of new technologies based on Cooperating Objects (COs). The goal of the PLANET project is to provide an integrated planning and maintenance platform that enables the deployment, operation and maintenance of heterogeneous networked COs in an efficient way. The project particularly emphasizes the capability of the platform to support deployment and operation strategies for large-scale systems composed of unmanned ground and aerial vehicles cooperating with wireless sensors and actuators. In this article, we elaborate the solution of the PLANET integrated framework and its supporting techniques
