A method is proposed to enhance the automation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle operations. Waypoint-based missions are augmented with safety monitoring of the UAV as a whole and execution monitoring and control of each mission leg. The monitoring and control are implemented using a Behaviour Tree which is automatically generated from the waypoints. The approach exploits the modularity of Behaviour Trees to populate a standard mission template with modules appropriate to each mission. The result is a highly flexible and reconfigurable framework that is easy to use for those overseeing the flight. Simulated flight results in a simple inspection scenario are provided.
