Aiming at the problem of unmanned aerial Vehicles(UAVs) entering non-segregated airspace, UAVs-safety and the key factors of improving their airspace flight capacity were analyzed, according to the characteristics of large scale, medium scale, small scale and low speed, medium speed, high speed UAVs coexisting. The approaches include category management, autonomous navigation and control, dynamic mission planning, coordination mechanisms, sense and avoid, etc. Based on improving the UAVs-reliability, they would have the ability of air traffic management in whole airspace. Modeling and simulation are effective method to validate these approaches. The final target is reducing the cost of UAVs, improving the ability to share more airspace and achieving the goal of manned and unmanned air vehicles flying together.
