This chapter addresses the challenges of onboard mission management for small, low flying UAVs in order to reduce their dependency on reliable remote control. The system presented and tested onboard an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) provides levels of autonomy, scalable at runtime either by the operator or due to the absence of a data link. This way, it is a feasible approach towards autonomous flight guidance within the low-altitude domain (e.g. urban areas) where unpredictable events are likely to require onboard decision-making. In the following sections the problems of onboard mission management, embedded high level architectures and their implementation issues are discussed. The design of a onboard Mission Management System for a test platform with vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) capabilities is presented, followed by discussions of the implemented system and a research outlook.
