Single LocalMapService instance

I have an WPF application displaying a simple map which always uses the same mpk but is passed as an argument the map extent.
Several instances of this application can run concurrently with different map extents but they all instantiate their own LocalMapService.
Is there a way to ensure there is only one service running for all application instances when one instance is already running to save the precious seconds it takes to launch the service ?

Thanks for any hints
