The design, development, and testing of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with automated capabilities is described: searching a prescribed area, identifying a specific building within that area based on a small sign located on one wall, and then identifying an opening into that building. This includes a description of the automated search system along with simulation and flight test results. Results include successful evaluation at the McKenna Military Operations in Urban Terrain flight test site.
