Abstract
The further development of Unmanned Tactical Autonomous Control and Collaboration (UTACC) requires a thorough analysis of potential unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) capable of supporting the program. This thesis developed a comprehensive database with which to conduct an analytical evaluation of UAVs to include physical specifications, performance specifications, and sensor capabilities. This research determined that an aircraft satisfying established performance characteristics, capable of vertical takeoff and landing, and with a small size and modular payload capability met the requirements needed to further UTACC development. This thesis developed a list of potential aircraft that satisfy the characteristics evaluated and are suitable for research, development, test and evaluation, or operational applications.
