Abstract : This is the final report covering progress on a two year research effort towards the development of basic technology for adaptive modeling and real-time computer simulation to support decision-making in a number of critical planning situations that arise during the execution of tactical air missions. Both tactical and defensive planning must be done quickly--the side that is faster and better prepared will have the advantage. Still, plans must be accurate. Planning too quickly may cause important information to be overlooked- -information that may affect whether the plan will achieve its goal. Computers should be able to support decision-making and planning, but currently, for a number of reasons, these do not approach their potential use in this field. One major reason is that understanding of planning and modeling of real world situations are inadequate. These adequacies involve: World models; A model of time; Understanding of inaccurate information; Propagating the effects of information and retracing (backtracking) that propagation if necessary; and Processing speed, especially as regards deduction and simulation. This report reviews these difficulties and developed approaches to solving these.
