This paper describes a model for integrating information acquisition functions into a response planner within a tactical self-defense system. This model may be used in defining requirements in such applications for sensor systems and for associated processing and control functions. The goal of information acquisition in a self-defense system is generally not that of achieving the best possible estimate of the threat environment; but rather to provide resolution of that environment sufficient to support response decisions. We model the information acquisition problem as that of achieving a partition among possible world states such that the final partition maps into the system's repertoire of possible responses.
