Abstract : O-Plan2 (the Open Planning Architecture) provides a generic domain independent computational architecture suitable for command, planning and execution applications. The main contribution of the O-Plan2 research has been a complete vision of a modular and flexible planning and control system incorporating artificial intelligence methods. This report describes the O-Plan2 agent oriented architecture and describes the communication which takes place between planning and execution monitoring agents built upon the architecture. Separate modules of such a system are identified along with internal and external interface specifications that form a part of the design. A description of the prototype implementation of O-Plan2 is included and the report describes an application of O-Plan2 to the generation of on-board commands for a simple, built realistic, spacecraft.
