Methods, systems and computer readable media are presented for computing a guidance control policy to transition an uncertain dynamical system from an initial state to a final state, in which a set of points are computed to provide discreet and accurate representation of uncertainty, and is which a guidance control policy is computed based on a set of equations involving the initial state, the final state, state variables, control variables, and parameters, as well as designated parameters of interest, a set of constraints corresponding to state and control variables, a performance metric, statistical distribution types corresponding to the parameters of interest, statistical moments individually corresponding to the parameters of interest, and weighting values corresponding to the parameters of interest. A guidance control policy which defines control variables for transitioning from the initial state to the final state which is robust to the considered system uncertainty is computed according to the computed set of points and the performance metric.
