This paper addresses the problem of distributed cooperative collision avoidance that supports efficient utilization of air space shared by several autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles. The novel multi-party collision avoidance (MPCA) algorithm is described. It is compared to the iterative peer-to-peer collision avoidance (IPPCA) algorithm that iteratively optimizes social welfare. The paper provides a set of experiments and a comparison of different collision avoidance mechanisms in a multi-agent model of air traffic.
