Abstract : This paper describes research into planning in an uncertain environment. In particular, it describes U-Plan, a planning system that constructs quantitatively ranked plans given an incomplete description of the state of the world. Information acquisition operators are then applied to choose between plan alternatives. U-Plan has been trialled in a simulated one on one air combat domain. Results of the evaluation in this report included number of plans produced, sensitivity and timing data.
