A system whose state is constantly evolving over time is dynamic.

An SoS dynamically reacts on changes in the related environment conditions as well as changes within the SoS (e.g. changes in subsystem features).

See also adaptability and flexibility

“Constituent systems and the numerous connections of the SoS form a dynamic system architecture that changes itself correspondingly in order to achieve the purpose of the SoS and its constituent systems in a cost-effective manner.”[1]
